Oswald's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Oswald's Story...
Adoption fee on this dog is $100.


Oswald, (aka Oz) is a very handsome male, with black and tan coloring, who we think is approximately 6 - 8 years old. He was an owner surrender to a local area shelter, but even though he was surrendered, we know little about his background.

As is sometime the case with older GSDs, he seems to have rear end mobility issues. We are having his rear end and knees evaluated, so we can come up with a plan to keep him pain-free as she ages.

Oz is currently living in a house with 3 other GSDs and two medium sized dogs, with a mixture of male and female. He gets along well with most of the dogs, but does not tolerate the younger ones jumping on him or trying to play rough.

Oz is really easy to have in the house, loves to give you kisses, is house trained with a dog door, and is comfortable hanging out with his pack in another room, as long as he knows where you are. He knows basic commands, rides well in the car and enjoys short walks. He gives little warning when he's tired of walking, and will just plop down on a lawn, making himself comfortable until he feels ready to walk again. Can't rush a senior!

I'm not sure how Oz would do with cats or other small furry critters.

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.

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

Oswald, 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.
