Our featured pet introduces herself...

Her name is Sara

Sara is a very pretty little girl about 3 yrs. old who was surrendered by her family to a shelter where SASRA found her and pulled her from. Sara needed some obedience and socialization work which her foster mom, who is a trainer, has been working on with her. We'd been told Sara had lived with another dog, but we found out that she initially wasn't too happy sharing attention with the other dogs in the foster home, especially with her foster dad. Her foster mom has been working hard with her and now Sara will be OK with other dogs although she'd be happiest having all the attention. We don't recommend she be in a home with cats or other small animals.

SASRA is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization dedicated to giving a second chance to pure-bred German Shepherd Dogs who have been abandoned, turned into animal shelters, or no longer wanted by their family. Our volunteers are dedicated to saving a breed of dog endowed with intelligence, loyalty, devotion and honor. We look for permanent homes for our dogs, who have so much love to give. We are dedicated to helping as many dogs as we financially can. We also want to educate the public about the needs and characteristics of German Shepherd Dogs. For more information about our organization, please call us at 215-542-2716! We're looking forward to hearing from you!

** SASRA believes in the foster care system and the dogs in our program are all living in volunteers' homes. The address for SASRA is a private residence used for corporate purposes only and is not a kennel facility where dogs are kept.

IS A GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG RIGHT FOR YOU?
*** *** *** ***

  • German Shepherds shed a lot. If having dog hair flying around you house bothers you then, you definitely should not consider getting a German shepherd. They shed continuously, as well as blow all their undercoat at least twice a year, spring and fall. To help with this, they should be brushed regularly, but this will still not stop the fur balls from collecting everywhere.

  • German Shepherd is a large breed, and a very energetic one. They require daily exercise to keep them healthy and happy. They do not do well confined to a dog run or yard on their own all day, every day. They are very devoted to their family members, and much prefers to be with them every waking moment, rather than shut away on their own.

  • If you are going to be gone for long periods of time and do not have time for training and playing that the GSD needs, then please consider another breed of dog. German Shepherd Dogs do NOT do well as outside dogs left in kennels with little or no attention, nor do they do well sitting out on a chain all day, just being fed twice a day, with little human contact. They love people, and they want to be with people. The more time you spend with your GSD, the better he will get. A GSD left for long periods of time will quickly become a nuisance barker, digger and chewer.

  • They require obedience training, basic commands and house manners. German Shepherds are a very powerful breed, and unless taught to walk nicely on a lead, they can drag their owner on quite a tour of the neighborhood, Obedience training should also include socialization, with other animals and with humans.

  • German Shepherds are very intelligent dogs, and require a firm handler. This does NOT mean an abusive handler but, rather, one that will confidently take his/her place as pack leader (there is a BIG difference). German Shepherds need a job to do, and if left to their own devices too often, they will create their own enjoyment, which could be eating your furniture, digging up your back yard, or barking non-stop all day long.

  • Remember, the GSD is big dog, an active dog, a working dog, and a loyal dog. So if you don?t mind a little extra vacuuming and extra time spent on your dog, then in return you will have a wonderful friend and companion.
