Atlas's Story...
Make BFFs Atlas & Maddie Your Furever Friends
Atlas – 6-year-old German/Shiloh Shepherd Mix, blonde, medium coat Maddie – 3-year-old German Shepherd, black and tan, short coat Good with other dogs: Large dogs only Good with cats: No This gorgeous and sweet bonded pair was found on the street. But these two would make wonderful
pets for a family who doesn’t mind having a very large lap dog and his sidekick. Atlas is a big boy, but don’t tell him that, he thinks he’s the perfect size to be on your lap! Maddie is a petite girl, a bit on the shy side, but when she’s with her Atlas, she comes out of her shell. This pair would be do best in a home with no cats and no small dogs. And because of Atlas’ size, older children would be the best fit.
Atlas and Maddie know a few commands, can walk on a leash, and really want to please. An active family that could continue their leash training would be optimal. And they are just learning to play with toys and would love a family that will help them learn what fun is all about.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Atlas, a Phoenix 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 Phoenix, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

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