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

Barrington is a big easy-going floppy-eared boy weighing in at 110 lbs. he was an unclaimed stray at a local shelter so nothing is known about his background.


Once he is comfortable with his people, Barrington has a lot of personality, and will bond quickly. He likes affection, and to be close to his people. It would appear that although Barrington has some indoor skills, he probably spent a good deal of time outdoors and seems content to be outside for part of the day. He would probably like a home with a dog door as he sometimes seems a little uncomfortable in the house after awhile.

Barrington likes to go on short walks, and really just lumbers along. Anything longer than 2 miles at a time is a little too much for him at the moment, although I'm sure he could work up to a longer distance.


Barrington loads into the car easily, and rides nicely. He has not had any accidents in his foster home. He has not been crate trained, and will put up a fuss if you try to put him in. Once in, after a little pouting, he will sleep through the night. He will break out if left in there during the day with no one around. Barrington seems to like having a selection of toys and balls to choose from. He has been seen successfully carrying both a tennis ball and a deflated soccer ball in his mouth as the same time, although does not seem to have much interest in fetch.


Barrington may be able to live with a calm dog that does not want to play, but really does not like other animals in his space. He ignores yappy dogs on his walks, and other animals in the waiting room at the vet. He will correct another dog that jumps on him and tries to play with him, but will not tolerate or back down if a dominant male gets pushy with him. Barrington would probably prefer to be an only dog.


This dog is a Level 3. 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barrington, 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.
