Pistol's Info...

I am purebred.

Pistol's Story...
Adoption fee on this dog is $350.

We have special Requirements for Adopting a Puppy and a separate Puppy Questionnaire that must be completed on puppies. Please see our Requirements for Adopting a Puppy or EMAIL us at info@gcgsr.org for more information.


Pistol is a 3-4 month old all black GSD puppy. He has a moderate amount of energy, and already shows some ball drive. He still gets car sick but with luck, will outgrow that. Other than that, he does enjoy car rides.

Pistol is charming and affectionate with everyone he has met so far. He loves to give kisses or sit in your lap. He will steal your slippers, and if caught in the act, will try to charm his way out of it by acting adorable ... which usually works!

He loves to play with the big dogs, and will pounce on them until they either play with him or correct him. He also likes to steal any toy the other dogs are playing with, even if he already has a toy. He will do best in a home with another large dog that is both playful and patient.

Pistol does like to jump up and paw at people for attention, and because he has not had all of his puppy vaccinations yet, he has not started any leash training. An owner who fully understands the responsibility and commitment it takes to raise and train a typical GSD will be a must.


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.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pistol, a Sacramento German Shepherd Dog puppy 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 puppy 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.
