Carlos's Story...
CARLOS IS READY FOR HIS FUREVER HOME! We rescued Carlos on Memorial Day of this year from the local shelter. We named him after a decorated WMD Dog who served overseas in honor of the day. Carlos came to us with a severe injury to his rear leg/hock. We don't know exactly what caused it, but we think his leg got tangled up in a cord or clothesline of sorts, which then severed the muscle up above his hock (knee joint). He's had persistent swelling and because of the damage to his muscle, he also developed a deep ulcer on the bottom of the foot which is almost completely healed.
All of this doesn't slow him down much, but Carlos would not be a good partner for an athletic adopter. He may walk with a bit of a limp, and special attention to his pad will probably always be needed. He is a sweet boy of about 4 years, is calm, mellow, gets along with other dogs and kids, and rarely barks. He loves his attention and enjoys cuddling in bed.
Carlos also enjoys short walks - his foot needs to be wrapped for this - but it is simple and easy. Carlos would actually do better in a home with another dog. He has a touch of separation anxiety - so he likes to have another dog around - he is not destructive and can have free reign in the house - no crating! This is a wonderful, beautiful, easygoing guy! He is the perfect partner for someone who likes all of the traits of a German Shepherd but who also enjoys a calm, well-adjusted pup. He is dog door trained, house trained, non-destructive and a great guy overall.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Carlos, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

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