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

Sonic is an adorable, calm, 55 pound, 7-8 month old male youngster, with ears that fall into each other most of the time and is still growing. He was an owner surrender to a Sacramento area shelter when his owners said they didn't have time for him. They had only had him two months, and had left him outside full time. We don't know where Sonic was before that.

Sonic is currently in a foster home which has someone home most of the time. There are two other German Shepherds in the foster home and Sonic gets along well with both dogs and has been submissive in his behavior around them. He shadows the volunteer around the house and is sweet and very affectionate. He has not had an accident in his foster home.

Sonic has moderate energy and, so far, has not chewed anything or dug holes. He does like to steal toilet paper, but just for the fun of it. It is unknown how Sonic would be with small children, cats or small critters, but being young and submissive he could possibly learn to live well in many situations. Obedience training and continued socialization will benefit Sonic. He would also do best in a home with regular human and/or canine companionship.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sonic, 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.
