Maxwell's Info...

Maxwell's Story...
Maxwell is a happy black and tan male German Shepherd puppy who is about 9 months old. He was a backyard dog so did not get much training but is starting his obedience now. He is getting used to being an indoor dog, and is good in his crate. He likes the male and female GSDs in his foster home and is learning how to get his share of cuddles from his foster parents. Maxwell rides well in a car and likes to play. With a little TLC Maxwell is going to blossom into the wonderful dog he was born to be.

Like all puppies he needs owners who are home enough, and have the time, energy, strength, and patience to guide him through his chewing, digging, and mouthing stages (which can last until they are 2-3 years old), and who will provide regular exercise, socialization and training so he will grow up to be a mannerly adult dog. All puppies bark incessantly, dig, and destroy things if they are left alone for long periods of time, and thus, need to be with owners who do not leave them alone for long hours. Priority will be given to families with experience raising German Shepherd Dog or similar puppies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maxwell, a Walnut Creek 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 Walnut Creek, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog puppy from a breeder in Walnut Creek.

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