Samson's Story...
Hi... I know everyone could use a Buddy... lucky for you, I'm here! I ended up with the nice folks at Cape Ann Animal Aid when my people moved. I know... pretty crummy, but my faith in the human race was restored by the nice staff at the Cape Ann Animal Aid who have taken me in and gave me a nice fluffy bed that keeps me toasty warm. So, a little more about me. I'm about 8 years old (I lost my day planner when my people moved, so I'm not exactly sure of my birthdate), House trained, and walk well on a leash. I have also lived with cats and I just love relaxing on the couch. I am considered Special Needs because I have not received routine veterinary care in the past and am Lyme and Anaplasmosis positive. What does this mean? It means I have two tick born diseases. I am showing no signs or symptoms but the vets are treating me anyway with some antibiotics just to be on the safe side. Don't let scare you off though... I'm a diamond in the ruff. Because I am an adult rescue CAAA would like to place me in a home with older children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gloucester 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 Gloucester 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 German Shepherd Dog/Retriever (Unknown Type) breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Retriever (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gloucester paves the way for another one to be saved.
