Tessa's Story...
UNDER SAVING PAWS CARE - Meet Tessa. Tessa was rescued from the county shelter euthanasia list due to fear. She would stay to the very back of her kennel and not come forward. We could not think of her life ending in such fear, so of course we grabbed her and brought her to the rescue center. Tessa is still working on building her confidence and trusting people. She is a part of the center house dog pack so she has the ability to run around the center all day. She is gaining confidence from the other dogs. She uses the doggie door and will find some mischief if she is allowed to overnight. She loves her big kennel at night to sleep and enjoy a kong at bedtime! She does well with other dogs. The ideal home will be someone who is willing to come and visit Tessa often and earn her trust over time. She isn’t leash trained, so that will come with time. If you want to follow her progress, follow us on https://www.facebook.com/SavingPawsRescue. If you are interested in being that safe loving forever home and willing to work with her over time, fill out our adoption application now. Tessa is worth waiting for and is she ever beautiful!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tessa, 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.
