Leah's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Leah's Story...

Leah and her sister Sissy are still more pups who were born into this world to irresponsible pet owners who let their animals breed willy nilly and not spay and neuter. This irresponsible and selfish act costs millions of lives every year due to the gluts of dogs that end up in the shelter system.

Leah and Sissy are extremely bonded, one can hardly do anything without the other, while we can separate them, finding a loving home that will take both girls would be ideal.

They were being delivered to a gassing shelter in North Carolina when a rescuer intervened on their behalf to save their lives, if they had not, both girls would likely not be here.

We were told that their mom was a Akita mix and dad a German Shepherd and while we can see a little of both in the girls, they are

small bodied girls, neither girl will likely be more than 45-50lbs. so these darling little Shepherd mix girls will not be big dogs.

Sweet as they can be, they need more socializing and confidence building and basic obedience work, Sound like a lot? Well they are still pups,

orphans who've not had the best start in life. They are needing a family who will give them a great life, be patient with them and teach them that there are loving families out there.

If you would like to make one or both of the girls members of your family

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leah, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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 Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
