Patches's Story...
Hi, I'm Xena!

My birthday is May 07 and I'm WAY too thin at my current weight of 70 lbs.

I was recently rescued from the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, and my foster mom was shocked at how thin and hairless I was.  She rushed me to the vet, and the vets determined I had a horrible ringworm infection and parasite infestation.  We've gotten the parasites under control, and the ringworm is much better, but I'm still very thin and predominantly bald.  My hair will eventually grow back, though, and I'm starting to eat much better, so I should be good as new in another couple of months :) 

Oh, and for those of you that aren't familiar with Anatolians, we mature VERY slowly, so, although I'm more than a year old, I'm still very much a puppy by  Anatolian standards. 

I was microchipped, and my microchip was still registered to my breeder, so we were able to contact her and find out she had sold me several months earlier as a trained stock guardian to someone who didn't bother to register the chip in his name.  The breeder really didn't want to be responsible for the cost of healing me and also didn't know how to contact the person who bought me anymore (thank goodness!), so she agreed I could stay in rescue, retire from being a working dog, and find a nice forever home where I can be a beloved family pet -- are you the right family for me?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Patches, a San Antonio Anatolian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Anatolian Shepherd for sale in San Antonio, or seeking a Anatolian Shepherd dog from a breeder in San Antonio.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Antonio 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 San Antonio 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 Anatolian Shepherd breeders who help with Anatolian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Antonio paves the way for another one to be saved.
