Spike's Story...
Spike is new to our rescue. He is 1 year old. His owners only had him two weeks, so there is little history on him. The family that surrendered him indicated that they had a turtle, a female pitbull and two small children. He did not seem comfortable around the children and growled when they approached. Growls are warnings, and precursors to bites if ignored. So we do not recommend Spike for a home with small children. We have no information about cats, and are not really able to determine how he is with them other than by observing his prey drive.

Spike is crate trained, but did not like being put in the crate unless he was treated and experienced positive reward.

He knows the command sit, and likes to play tug o war and go for walks.

Updates will be posted as we continue our assesments with Spike.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spike, a New Ringgold 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 New Ringgold, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in New Ringgold.

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