Looking for a calm, low energy dog who is wanting to be loved and looking for the perfect retirement home? Look no further! #seniorsdoitbetter #cuddlebug

About my Behaviour:

I'm a low energy guy who loves to lean on people and stare into their eyes. Everyone who meets me falls in love and wants to give me all the people food! I tug on the leash a bit, and may need some training to be better mannered on walks. So far, I get along with dogs and ignore cats.

How’s my Health?

I have been fixed, microchipped, and vaccinated. I have an old injury to my leg that causes me to limp; however, it's been improving ever since I came into care. I am taking some medications for arthritis, and glucosamine to keep me limber(ish!)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Opa Bear, a Edmonton 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 Edmonton, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Edmonton.

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