Jake's Story...
Name: Jake
Color: Brown and Black
Breed: German and Australian Shepherd mix
Gender: Male
Age: 4 Years
Hey this is Jake! He is a head shy Shepherd mix who needs a forever home.
Big fan of: Exercise, exercise, exercise! Jake is a very active young man who needs to be on a good exercise program and not left alone in the yard to exercise himself. He’d love to be your jogging buddy and to go for long hikes on the weekend. Jake loves treats and when you have treats in your hand that is all he can think about. He is not mouthy but he will paw at your hand for a treat! He also absolutely loves to play ball.
Special Features: If you are a first time dog owner you will need to sign him up for positive based obedience training. This will help with his confidence building.
Dream Home: Jake would love to have a dog sibling of similar age and play style. He could live with a confidant cat who will put him in his place. Because of Jake’s fearfulness, he could not live with young children. Respectful older kids who can help exercise and socialize Jake would be best.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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