Puma in SC's Story...
Puma in SC

Puma is a 2 year old female that was owner relinquish. She has been spayed and is is current on vaccines, heartworm negative, free of internal and external parasites, and micro-chipped. She is located in SC. Once ready we will start with the pre-approved applicants already waiting. Puma in on the small side, 53 lbs. She was purchased from a breeder who had her listed on craigs list for $50 when she was 11 months old. She's VERY skittish and will not go anywhere near men and she's scared of Hank our DS. She hasn't been aggressive at all, but she's a nervous wreck all the time but I also noticed when I met with her and her owner who was male she was totally boned to him. She was absolutely fine with him and you could see she was comfortable and devoted to him, but very shy and nervous when encountering any new situation. Puma is completely house and crate trained, she also knows her basic commands of sit, lay down, stay, come. She's not destructive, although I have not left her unattended unless she's in the crate. She walks beautifully on the leash and also rides well in the car. (week later) She's getting better with Hank, they have a love hate thing going on now. She likes to play with him, but then all of a sudden will turn and growl and lunge at him, then run away. I think she might do well with a dog not as dominant as Hank because she loves to run and play. Puma is extremely jealous anytime we give Hank any attention, she will start crying very loudly and then try to physically place herself in between us by any means necessary. She's gotten better with my husband, she'll let him pet her if she approaches him, but he cannot approach her or she cries out and runs. She will not let my husband walk her, she lays down and cries if I hand him the leash. She's very wary of all new people and situations, but has a very deep fear of men in general that I have observed. I have not had her around any children or cats. She LOVES all types of toys and has a tremendous ball drive. I've spent a lot of time playing with her and she does seem to calm down a little after some vigorous exercise. She also very food motivated. She's very affectionate and snuggly with me when she wants to be, but she has to be the one to initiate it. She's a beautiful girl that must have suffered through some very bad things to act this way, it really breaks my heart. I think in the right atmosphere she will make a wonderful pet for someone.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Puma in SC, a Jamestown Dutch Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dutch Shepherd for sale in Jamestown, or seeking a Dutch Shepherd dog from a breeder in Jamestown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jamestown 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 Jamestown 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 Dutch Shepherd breeders who help with Dutch Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jamestown paves the way for another one to be saved.
