Dag's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Dag's Story...
Dagwood is a darling 7 1/2 month old male that seems to like everybody and everything. He loves to ride in the car. He's very motivated to chase balls and frisbee's and is a quick learner. He is crate trained and lives in a foster home with dogs and cats. Dag is a 'talker', making some of the cutest vocalizations!

After failing to gain weight like his brothers (Hugo and Baron) did, GSRCA took him in for some testing. In April 2008 Dag was diagnosed with EPI or Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency. THIS CONDITION IS MANAGEABLE! Here is a link to better understand EPI Understanding EPI Dag is doing well and gaining weight on his current medical regime. Right now this consists of a high quality kibble (Canidae) and Pancreved tablets. He eats 3-4 meals and gets 1 tablet crushed and put on his food for each and every meal. Usually dogs with EPI need medication for the rest of their lives. The dosage will vary as he grows and stabilizes.

Dag had a short bout of pano which is a transient bone ailment in young German Shepherds. He's bounced back from that and is doing exceptionally well. He just started basic obedience classes at Manners in Motion.

Dag is from a litter of fourteen, yes 14. His owner/breeder sold 10 of his siblings, but chose to dump the rest at the pound, where they were sure to get sick. The shelter called GSRCA and fortunately a foster home was found for him. He didn't even have to spend a whole day at that place.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dag, a Pike Road 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 Pike Road, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Pike Road.

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