Jory's Story...
I'm Jory, a 1 year old German Shepherd mix. I came from a really bad situation where I wasn't really able to live up to my full puppy potential, so I'm just starting to do that now. I still do some puppy things like explore everything with my mouth and get a bit jumpy when I’m really happy or see something I want to bark at! I love toys and especially balls! I have learned that getting petted and loved on is so nice and I love to snuggle and pretend I’m a lap dog with my foster family! I am very timid and need a lot of time to warm up to new people. It is very important that my forever family understands that I need lots of patienceand activities, like obedience training, to help build my confidence and to help me be a brave boy. I am quite smart and pick up commands quickly, but need an experienced person who understands scared dogs to teach me. I am house and crate trained, but need to continue to learn that visitors are not going toharm me. I love to go for walks on a leash, but mostly only where I am familiar with my surroundings and there are not a lot of vehicles going by to scare me. I guess I’m just a country boy! Since I am skittish, I need a house with a nice high fence. I am only 40 pounds, and am told I am quite small for a German Shepherd mix, but I am pretty strong so my family probably should have no, or older kids only. Another dog in the house to show me the ropes would be best for me too. I just love to play with other nice dogs! My foster mom hasn't seen me around cats before. I am up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. My adoption fee is $250. Please apply at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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