Heidi's Story...
Heidi Lost Her Home, Will You Open Yours to Her?

5-year-old, female, black and blonde, German Shepherd
Good with other dogs: Large dogs only
Good with children: Older children only
Good with cats: No

We’re always so sad when a happy dog loses his/her home. Heidi was doing great with her family, who
even paid for surgery on both ACLs, and was enjoying life. Unfortunately, she attacked a small dog and
the family worried she might be too much for their coming newborn.

Heidi is so sweet, but she doesn’t understand what happened to her family, which breaks our hearts. So
right now, she’s a little anxious. But her previous owner reports that she is smart, knows several
commands, walks well on a leash and does well with older children. However, Heidi has a high prey
drive, so no small dogs or cats for this girl. But if you’re looking for a sweet, middle-aged German
Shepherd with some training under her belt, Heidi is the one for you.

As always, if you are interested in a Saving Paws dog, you must fill out our

to process an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Heidi, 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.
