Gwen's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Gwen's Story...
Gwen is a shepherd mix that was rescued from a high kill shelter. She may also have some kind of bully breed mixed in ( look at her smile! )

- Good on leash, can pull if she gets excited but stops with correction
- Good with dogs of all sizes
- Amazing big love of a dog, has her little quirks such as doesn't love her tail, or paws grabbed but handles it well enough
- LOVES people
- Overall is an AMAZING dog if you have dog experience and are comfortable with stronger breeds
- Is fine with kids, but a lot of unpredictable movements, lots of grabbing or jumping on her makes her uncomfortable. She could also jump up on a smaller child and accidentally hurt them with her size and goofy play mood. So a home with older kids or adults is preferred.

She is strong girl at around 70lbs and will require an experienced owner that can handle her size. Her adoption fee is $300, and includes her spay and up to date vaccinations as well as microchip. Visit PawsforGenesis.Org for more information and applications.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gwen, a Santa Cruz Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Santa Cruz, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Santa Cruz.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Santa Cruz 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 Santa Cruz 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Santa Cruz paves the way for another one to be saved.
