Hello, my name is Mater. I'm a medium-sized guy (about 40 pounds) who appears to be a mostly shepherd mix. I am probably about 3 years old and was found as a stray. I am very strong and could probably pull a dogsled all by myself! When you see me rip around the playyard, it will make you laugh! I came to the shelter several months ago as a scared, cautious boy and the shelter staff have helped me blossom into a Mr. Happypants! I still don't enjoy being in a kennel by myself. I seem to like meeting other dogs but would probably be best in a home without young children since I was found as a stray originally. I've been at the shelter longer than anyone else and am hopeful it will be my turn to leave soon. Hope to see you soon!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mater, a Tyrone Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Tyrone, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Tyrone.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tyrone 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 Tyrone 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tyrone paves the way for another one to be saved.
