Greta's Story...
Greta is a Dutch Shepherd-mix, female, 2 years of age.

Cheerfully happy and playful sometimes with barely contained enthusiasm, this vibrant canine cutie absolutely craves human companionship along with lots of attention and any hands-on loving she can garner! Always joyful, up for any and all cuddling sessions, she is straight-up an affectionate, people-pleasing dog who desires above all else to be welcomed into her new forever home as a lifelong family member and companion who is included in daily family activities.

Greta approaches life with puppy-like gusto, and she needs the confident leadership a responsible, caring owner will provide. A dog who thrives with structure and routine, she is looking for the sense of security those things bring. Wholly sincere and very smart, she is attentive and quick to please when she knows what is expected of her. Recommending obedience training if for no other reason than because she’ll enjoy it, we also recommend this because it is a catalyst for deep-bonding; and in a loving, companionable soul such as Greta who lives to serve, this is so much more so.

A sweet-natured, polite and docile girl – animated, happy-go-lucky, endearing, gentle, sensitive, and sometimes silly – Greta needs regular physical activity and mental stimulation to stay happy and healthy. Her exercise needs though are pretty modest and can be met with leashed walks, interactive playtime, and adventurous outings alongside family members she will be loyally and wholeheartedly devoted too. A more easy-to-please, loving, and steadfast canine family member you will be hard-pressed to find!

Greta is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.

Come meet Greta at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

For more information you can email carrie_nation@monroemi.org or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.

Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.

Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.

In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Greta, a Monroe Dutch Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dutch Shepherd for sale in Monroe, or seeking a Dutch Shepherd dog from a breeder in Monroe.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Monroe 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 Monroe 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 Dutch Shepherd breeders who help with Dutch Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Monroe paves the way for another one to be saved.
