Front Range German Shepherd Rescue LogoColorado Front Range German Shepherd Rescue is a small group of German Shepherd lovers in the Denver area who volunteer our time and talents to help homeless pets find new families. We are always looking for new volunteers – providing temporary foster homes for these dogs is the big need, but there are many more opportunities to help. Please consider joining our efforts.

We also help owners who, due to unforeseen circumstances, find themselves unable to keep their dogs.
Adopting Your New Canine Family Member
All of the Front Range adoptable dogs are home fostered, or in cases where no foster home is available, some may even be boarded. We do not have a shelter, so there is no central location where all the dogs can be viewed.

great pyrenees logoTo help Great Pyrenees dogs find loving and caring homes. We the owners and breeders of the Great Pyrenees unite together to form Sierra Pacific Great Pyrenees Club as one family, equal and unified in purpose and conviction, dedicated to do nothing out of selfish ambition, but always to preserve, protect, promote, and edify the breed of the Great Pyrenees and the people who love them.

Here at SPGPC we are dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, rehoming, loving and celebrating Great Pyrenees dogs.

They were bred in the French Pyrenees Mountains and their purpose was to protect the sheep and livestock from predators such as wolves and bears. These dogs while loving and gently can become formidable opponents if their home or the people they love are in danger.

Because they are guardian dogs, they tend to be on duty and are known more often than not to bark. There are remedies to this situation if it becomes bothersome and we would be happy to share those options with you, if you are interested.

They do shed, however, their hair is long enough that it vacuums up easily without becoming entwined into fabrics. However, spayed and neutered dogs shed a lot less because of hormonal changes from the surgery.

They typically do not slobber. They can be messy drinkers, but will not leave snail trails down your walls with a shake of their head.

They are generally very good family dogs and love children.

They are wanderers and will roam. They must be confined in a secure fenced (6-ft.) area. They must never be tied or staked out.

They sometimes can be dog aggressive, because of their background as guardians, however, opposite sexes of dogs can be mixed and matched depending upon each dog’s individual traits and personalities.

Most of the rescue dogs come with some kind of baggage. They may have been mistreated and need to be loved and nurtured. All information about specific dogs will be shared when a potential new home is being considered.
