Bruce's Story...
Bruce is a 2 year old neutered male German Shepherd mix. Bruce is medium sized and only weighs around 40lbs. Bruce is housebroken and does well with other dogs. We require that you bring any current dogs to meet Bruce prior to adoption. Bruce can be skittish around young children so he would benefit from a home with older children who are dog savvy. Bruce has never been around cats so he will need a home that is free of cats. Bruce has a medium level of energy and will need a home that is willing to take him for daily walks. Bruce loves squeaky toys and tennis balls. He would absolutely love a home that would take him out in the yard and play fetch with him. Bruce is a cuddlebug and will roll on his back so you can rub his belly. He just can never get enough attention. Bruce is motivated by treats and toys so he will be a great candidate for basic obedience classes. If Bruce sounds like the right fit for your family please come by the shelter and visit him today.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bruce, a Colonial Heights 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 Colonial Heights, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Colonial Heights.

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