A - FIONA's Story...
Hi, there! My name is FIONA. What’s yours? Nice to meet ya! WATCH MY VIDEO!

Hey! Before you get attached to me, read all the way to the bottom. You will see that I am still in Houston, TX but I want to get OUT of Houston and OUT of Texas so I can have a really good life. I want to see Texas in my rear view mirror. Whew! It is really hot here! A nice person came along and took me in and, now, I am ready to hit the road to your house! Uh, make that “our” house, OK? As soon as you adopt me, I’ll be on my way to you!

Here’s a little bit about me. I think it’s called vital statistics. I am a German Shepherd, probably full-blooded. I am 1.5 years old and I weigh 68 pounds. I have had all of my shots and have been spayed. YIKES!

I am a really smart girl. I walk pretty well on a leash. I know the command “Sit” and I’ve learned a doggie door all in 24 hours! I know you could teach me lots of stuff I need to know. I am, basically, a laid-back girl (when I’m cuddling with you). I would love to hike and swim and run and play catch and play Frisbee or whatever games you and I may like to do together. When we are tired of playing, I will just chill with you. When people love on me, I go down and roll over on my back so you can rub my tummy. See what a nice girl I am???

Can you stand to hear more good things about me? OK, here goes! I have soulful brown eyes that will “speak to you”. I am a lovely specimen, at least that’s what my foster mom says and it must be true because she smiles at me and loves on me and tells me how pretty I am. What do YOU think? Well, pretty is as pretty does and I’m an all-round good girl and I’m just waiting for my new friend and companion. I hope it is YOU!

I have been to some socialization classes and I’ve done quite well. But, as you know, all dogs need training by their own caregivers, the peeps who love them. I could use some more practice meeting other dogs. I don’t try to be mean or anything like that. I just get excited and get a tad overbearing especially with my big-girl size. Just a l-i-t-t-l-e more training and I’ll be perfect! Probably someone who is really smart (like me) and knows how to handle big dogs interacting with other dogs is what I need and want. I want someone to be my leader.

My foster mom loves me SO much that she only wants me to fly to my new home even if a pet transport truck was available. See my adoption information below.

If you would like to take me home (and you know you do), please email mpringle001@comcast.net and she can get me on my way to a new and loving home! My adoption fee is $700 USD and includes my vetting, spaying, microchip, health certificate, travel crate AND transportation on United Airlines from Houston, TX to areas in the Northeast U. S., North Central U. S., Northwest U. S., and Canada and will be arranged by the rescue group. (This is a courtesy posting.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

A - FIONA, a Stamford German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Stamford, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Stamford.

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