Leia's Story...
Leia is a beautiful Black and Tan 2 year old German Shepherd who lives to please her owners and will make you laugh and smile due to her playful antics and her loyalty to you. She learns quickly and is Obedience trained. Leia walks well on a leash, knows sit, lay down, wait, shake, come and go (crate command). We're working on "leave it," when she has a toy in her mouth, which I'm convinced she understands. But keep away is her favorite game so it's a tough one for her! Being so intelligent she loves to have a job to do, whether it is engaging her in play or practicing her Obedience skills. While she adores playtime, she also knows when it's time to relax, spending most of her days napping or lounging about the house. She's very affectionate and wants to be wherever you are. She is crate trained and loves having her own little cave, frequently spending time in it even when we're home and the door is open!

Leia loves every human she meets, adores nose scratches, rides in the car like a dream and adores water. She chases waves crashing on the beach (we don't take her to the ocean because she does swallow the water, but does love to chase beach waves), she is fearless in playing water fetch, rides in our canoe, and loves playing in our sprinklers. Her off leash recall is excellent unless her prey drive is activated. She will chase every bunny or kitty that crosses her path! She is very responsive to a correction on the leash in these situations though, so you should never find yourself being dragged!

Leia loves her toys and can be possessive of them with other dogs. (this has NEVER been an issue with humans of any shape or size.) If you fall in love with Leia, know that you're falling in love with the idea of spoiling and loving one really awesome dog for a very long time.

Leia will need to go to a home that does not have another female dog or cats. And preferably being the only single dog in the home.

If you are looking for a dog that is Obedience trained, loves to play and go for runs or long walks and swim with you, she is the one for you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leia, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Houston.

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