Archie's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

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

Archie is an 18-24 month old gorgeous black and tan male. He has a big block head, and very large paws; his body has almost caught up with the rest of him. Archie was an unclaimed stray out of a local shelter, so nothing is known about his background.

Archie is currently living with 6 other shepherds, and is learning appropriate pack behavior. He and his foster buddy Akua like to run and play together.

Archie doesn't seem to have any training under his belt, but is learning quickly. He does like to jump up, and will be happy to make footprints on your clean shirt, or counter top. He does however, walk very nicely on leash. Archie needs to be watched at meal time as he wants to go check out everyone else's meal, and can get a little grumbly about it.

Archie rides nicely in the car, sleeps quietly in his crate at night, and is learning indoor house manners. Archie so far seems to be housebroken.

With time and training Archie will be an excellent companion.

More will be written as we get to know Archie better.

Unknown with cats and other small furry critters.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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