Bongo's Info...

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

Bongo's Story...
Adoption fee on this dog is $300.

Bongo is a 2 year old boy weighing about 48 lbs with a shiny, soft black and tan coat. He was adopted as a puppy from our rescue, but returned recently when the family didn't have enough time for him.

Currently living in a home with two cats, a female German Shepherd, a 25 lb terrier mix and children, Bongo adores everyone and everything. He has nice house manners and follows the foster mom like her shadow. When left alone, Bongo barks loudly. He is learning the "no barking" command, but it will take time to break him of his barking habit.

Bongo is young and energetic. He would benefit in an active household to help burn up some of his energy and tire him out. He loves diving into the pool and going for a swim. He would make a good dock diving contestant. He also likes to play fetch and is overall a fun loving dog. Bongo would do best in a home with someone around most of the time, as he doesn't like being alone. At night, Bongo is sleeping through the night on a blanket next to the foster mom's bed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bongo, a Sacramento 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 Sacramento, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Sacramento.

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