Mona's Story...
Mona is a female shepherd mix, 2 years old, 40 lbs, has all shots and is spayed. I adopted this girl from the Pinole pound on 1/29/03 as a companion for my other dog, but they do not get along. Mona doesn’t play with other dogs much, and seems to prefer the company of people. I cannot send her back to Pinole because they will probably euthanize her, so I am looking for a good home for her. She is very affectionate, loyal, a quick learner, loves kids, likes to play fetch, swim and is human centered. She needed housebreaking, but seems to have caught on after a few days. She knows some commands, bonds easily and never strays more then 50 feet when out in the dog park. She does well in the off leash parks. She needed leash training and used to nip at the leash, but the spray bottle seems to have conquered that. She is a sweet companion!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mona, a Berkeley 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 Berkeley, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Berkeley.

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