Mario's Info...

Mario's Story...
Adoption fee on this dog is $300.

Mario is a 5-6 year old German Shepherd/Lab mix with a short, dark brown coat. He lived for several years in a no-kill shelter and came to us when they could no longer house dogs.

He is friendly and enjoys meeting people. He is now in a foster home and is happily learning house rules. He gets along well with other dogs. He can learn to live with cats. He has an old injury to a back leg, but does fine on walks. He is low energy in the house and happily sleeps in a crate at night.

Because we want Mario to have a great new life, the adopter will be required to take him to weekly obedience classes. These have been generously paid for by a sponsor to be taken at any PetSmart.

Mario needs a little TLC, but he has such a loving, want-to-please personality that he will quickly turn into a great pet.

This dog is a Level 2. Please be sure you understand what a dog of this Level requires. Go to our GCGSR Dogs page for an explanation of the Dog Rating Levels.

For more information and to see when this dog will be attending an Adoption Day, please see our Dogs page on our main website at www.gcgsr.org.

Thank you for visiting!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mario, a Modesto German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever for sale in Modesto, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Modesto.

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