Ishmael's Story...
Howdy! My name is Ishmael, I am a 5 month old neutered male black and tan shepherd mix. I was found on a cold winter wondering down the road by animal control. The officer brought me to the shelter to help keep me safe and warm. Unfortunately, my family never came to get me so I am now in need of another better family that wants to keep me forever! Could this be you? I really enjoy playing, after all I am a puppy. I would really like a family that wants to play with me and walk with me. I really am a people kinda guy. I've yet to find a toy that isn't my instant new favorite either! The staff here seem to think that I am just as happy as can be and that any family would be lucky to have such a fantastic little guy such as me to hang out with everyday. If you enjoy giving pets, playing ball and kisses them please come see me I'm sure we will get along great!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ishmael, a Murphysboro Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Murphysboro, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Murphysboro.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Murphysboro already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Murphysboro breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Murphysboro paves the way for another one to be saved.
