General's Story...
When you meet a dog like General, you just have to wonder what in the world could have happened? How did this nice, friendly, loving dog end up as a stray on the city streets all alone at his age? General is about 9 years old and it's very sad that he is in need of a good home and hoping for a chance to start over with a new family, when he should be enjoying himself in the prime of his life. He came to us from our Newark facility and poor General was completely emaciated and sick with pneumonia. This strong and resilient boy kept in good spirits all during his medical treatment and he is so happy to feeling great these days and have a clean bill of health. General is still a little thin, but he's put on quite a bit of weight and has a healthy appetite. Please don't be put off by his age because he has got lots of spunk and energy, and just give him a ball and he'll show you that he can still play like a puppy! He absolutely loves going for walks and enjoys trotting around in our exercise yard, sniffing around and picking up every toy that he comes across. General is very well mannered and takes treats very gently. He sits perfectly when asked, offers you a pawshake in friendship, and walks very well on a leash too. General could get along with a well behaved, mellow dog, given the time to get to know them, and he doesn't mind cats at all. He loves people of all ages and he is dreaming of a loving home with a family that will care for him and dote on him for the rest of his days. File#25684 10/22/15

Why Adoption is a Great Option

General, a Forked River 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 Forked River, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Forked River.

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