The past 2 1/2 years have been a struggle for everyone.  Rescues have suffered lack of donations and adoptions while pets are continue to be surrendered at the most alarming rates ever.   Having to turn away dogs is devastating to us.  Unfortunately we have been forced to operate on a very limited basis and  ARE NOT TAKING NEW DOGS FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE. We are so grateful for the loyal and steady support of our Shepherds Hope family and friends who have so generously supported us and continue to do so.   There are no words to convey how very thankful we are for your incredible support and friendship.

We pray that the future brings good health, happiness and brighter days for all, especially the animals.




Tank is a super hunky boy looking for a new place to park his toys.   Tank was found in summer of 2019 by good samaritans.  He was tied up in a dog park in Brooklyn – emaciated, had a severe urinary infection and was extremely dehydrated.

One of our prior adopters had recently lost her dog and kindly opened her heart and home to Tank to give him a forever home.  Unfortunately she suffered a serious back injury and had to leave her job.    Tank is just too strong for her to manage comfortably, so she had to make the heart-wrenching decision to find him a more suitable home.

When Tank was originally found, due to his poor condition, the vets originally thought he was 7 to 8 years old.    Now that he’s recovered and healthy as a horse, we believe he’s not more than 5 or 6 years old.  He is a large-boned boy and extremely strong.    He does need some work on the leash.  He is a super-energetic boy who would benefit from having a large fenced in yard to run in and play.

Tank seems to prefer women.  He would do best in a home with a single owner.   We are seeking a home with no other pets, experienced German Shepherd owners and no children.    Although he has been good with his owner’s grandchildren, he is a large dog who loves to show his love for those he cares about and he could quite possibly knock someone down.

Please fill out an application if you are interested in the very special boy.
