All specific requirements for individual ARF dogs are listed in their biographies.
Some basics are:
Fenced yard - visibly fenced; at least 5 foot tall fencing; no tie-outs, cables or invisible fencing is allowed to adopt an AGSR dog.
Obedience class -It's not about if you do or don't know how to train your new GSD, but it is about making the one-hour per week (for four to six weeks) committment to your new canine companion and helping him/her adjust to his/her new forever home.
HOW MUCH WILL MY RESCUE GSD COST?
Arf's German Shepherd Rescue costs based on the dog's age.
