Just ask them what they have available and discuss what you are looking for with them.
Fees for German Shepherd dogs and puppies adopted from a GSD rescue vary but you can always find out by doing online research or by calling or emailing the GSD rescue organization for more information. These fees usually includes spaying/neutering, vaccinations, a heartworm test and maybe even a veterinary checkup.
