Ava's Story...
IDGSR welcomes Ava into the safety of the rescue!!!

Ava is a pretty female German Shepherd mix who came to the rescue from a shelter. She is on the smaller side, what we call a pocket shepherd. Ava has a nice personality, is good with other dogs, and good with kids.She would do best with older kids as she has too much energy for little ones. NO CATS. She is housebroken and crate trained.

Ava is not a couch potato by any means and she needs a very active family or couple. Runners, hikers, joggers wanted! She would also be good with another like minded male dog and they could tire each other out! Ava is kooky, lovable, gives kisses and is a real character.

If you would like to make Ava a part of your family, please copy the link and fill out an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ava, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Portland.

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