Zev's Story...

Zev is about an 8 month old dark sable German Shepherd puppy. According to the shelter, he has a phenomenal temperament! During the evaluation, he let the evaluator tug his legs, pick up hind legs, hold his tail, dig in his mouth. He also seems good with other dogs and cats. 

We will post additional information as we get to know him. He is fostered in Falls Church, VA.

UPDATE: Zev does, indeed, have a phenomenal temperament. He is a happy puppy who gets along with cats, dogs, toddlers, children, and adults. He is crate trained, although will complain a bit when he first goes in, but settles quickly. He rides well in a car and has very good manners when dining out at a sidewalk cafe. He is fostered in a house with cats and would like to play, but when rebuffed he accepts it and moves along. He plays very nicely with dogs and is respectful of smaller dogs who do not interested in his invitations to play. 

There is a training requirement under the adoption contract with an approved trainer. Interested adopters should submit an online adoption application at www.trainingrescues.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zev, a Alexandria German Shepherd Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Alexandria, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog puppy from a breeder in Alexandria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Alexandria 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 Alexandria 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 Alexandria paves the way for another one to be saved.
