Xander's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Xander's Story...

Xander is an ultra sweet boy who gives kisses freely and wants to be loved. It is evident that someone has been rough with Xander and he's hand shy, as though someone had struck him. Why we can't even imagine that this super kid would be deserving of ill treatment.

Xander is a loving dog, he is great with other dogs both males and females. He is NOT cat friendly though.

Xander is wonderful with kids (see the video).

We've worked with Xander on some basic house manners and he will crate fine, he is very good in the house, he is not destructive, this is an easy dog from our perspective. He rides great in the car but is hesitant about getting in at first, we think he was dumped off somewhere and his last memory of his owner was getting in the car, so that was not a positive experience.

This is a Great dog! We at IDGSR absolutely adore this boy. He looks into your eyes and face for loving reassurance. Someone is going to be very lucky indeed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Xander, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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 Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
