Marco's Story...
Marco is a stunning 1.6 year old tan and black male Chinese Sharpei / German Shepherd mix. His weight is 56.4lbs. He is a really sweet and loving dog who just happy go lucky and loves to play. He will be a great jogging or hiking partner or will love to join in on any activities with the whole family. After playtime, he’s ready to be your cuddle buddy. He is great with other dogs and enjoys playtime and socializing with them. He is smart and already knows how to will sit on command. He is a super-duper good pup that just wants a family that he can love and be devoted and loyal to for a lifetime. $70 adoption fee includes neutering, vaccinations, microchip, de-fleaing & de-worming and heartworm test. We offer a 3 week money back (less $10 + $5 if paid on web with pre-payment/deposit) or even trade on another pet (dog for dog / cat for cat). This will give the pet and the adopting family time to get acquainted, for the pet to learn house rules, for fearful dogs to feel safe and secure, etc. Please call 563-652-5360 or email click to go to your email for information He will be arriving on the late February 'Saving Death Row Dogs' Emergency Transport from Miami; Updates on our Facebook Page and don't forget to 'LIKE US'! Fans get notice of all our Death Row transports, local and non-local pet arrivals, adoptions, informative dog and cat articles, videos, pet updates and much, much more! http://www.facebook.com/JCHumaneSociety If you plan on coming out the day of the transport, please call first to make sure there were no delays and the transport arrived. They usually arrive late morning, but that is a long distance to travel and many things could happen such as detours, traffic, engine trouble, etc. He is one of our dogs from our 'Saving Death Row Dogs' program. This transport is from a Miami Dade kill shelter and many of these dogs were taken off the main adoption room floor and could not be viewed by potential adopters. Some literally had hours until death for no fault of their own...just because of overcrowding, no homes and to make room for new incoming dogs.. But because of this great program and hard work of the 'Dogs on the Move' organization staff, our staff and volunteers that we were able to save these wonderful dogs and cats ...we would like to thank our donors, its' because of their donations that we were able to take a lot on the 'Most Urgent Red Code List'. Do you have room in your heart and home to give one of these sweet boys or girls a second chance at life in a loving home and a 'Happily Ever After'that they deserve? YOUR NEW COMPANION WILL COME WITH THE FOLLOWING -- spaying or neutering (which must be done before you can take your new family member home), all up-to-date vaccinations including rabies and rabies vaccination tag. Please bring a leash with you to the shelter to escort your new family member home properly. *BREED DISCLOSURE: Due to the fact that most of our adoptable pets are strays, we can’t guarantee their breed. We list the pet’s breed as the one that best matches the physical appearance, and the pet may also be listed as a mix when it’s a purebred. COST OF ADOPTION -- Dogs $70 and Cats $55.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marco, a Maquoketa Shar Pei/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shar Pei/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Maquoketa, or seeking a Shar Pei/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Maquoketa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Maquoketa 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 Maquoketa 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 Shar Pei/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Shar Pei/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Maquoketa paves the way for another one to be saved.
