Denver's Story...
Sweetest Dog Ever Needs Someone to Love
7-year-old, large, male, black and tan, German Shepherd Good with other dogs: Yes Good with cats: Unknown Good with children: Unknown, but likely
Denver is a big softie. He was rescued from Maricopa County Animal Care & Control and was thought to have a broken leg. SPR couldn’t leave him there in pain, so we took him in and got him right into the vet. Luckily, no broken leg at all. He’s just fine.
Talk about a gentle giant! Denver’s foster mom reports that he is the first to greet her at the door and bid her good bye and that he loves to lay his head in her lap on the sofa. He even shares well with his foster fur siblings without jealousy. He also loves to play a good game of tug, although he doesn’t really know what to do with a ball. And he is very well behaved in the house and doesn’t even need to be crated. He’s content just laying around napping. He is house trained and uses the doggie door. And he does wonderfully on a leash. This fellow has it all! He’s a big guy, so he sometimes bumps into his foster mom, but she said he gives her kisses right away when he realizes he bumped into her. How sweet is that?
As always, if you are interested in a Saving Paws dog, you must fill out our online application to get the approval process started. We will only schedule meet and greets with an approved application. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Many juggle family and full-time careers while volunteering at Saving Paws. Please be patient, as sometimes it takes up to 5 days to process an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Denver, 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.
