Yago's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Yago's Story...

Yago is a sweet, timid, submissive boy, approx. 10 months old.
We do not know Yago's past since he showed up as a stray in a rural shelter.
It is Evident that someone has not been so kind to Yago and he will need a patient
loving adopter to work with him. So far in the first week of him being with IDGSR
we have worked daily to bond with Yago so that he will know someone cares and loves him.
He freely gives kisses and is gentle and loving, but he needs someone to work with him on
coming to you so that he knows there is a reward of love and some high value treat for coming.
He is great with other dogs, no issues.
We have had far worse cases of terrified dogs come into rescue and those dogs were placed in loving homes that successfully finished the rehabilitation work that IDGSR started.
We do not know if Yago is a purebred but we would consider him a high content mix.
If you would like to apply for Yago and have the time to commit to seeing him be successful and knowing that there are kind and good people out there, please copy and paste the link below

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Yago, 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.
