Dex's Story...
Dex is a beautiful and friendly young male Shepherd estimated at just over a year of age. Dex was originally a stray who came to us in October, 2016 and found a home shortly thereafter. Unfortunately Dex was returned due to the adopter being unwilling to commit to training Dex and unable to give him the time he needed.

Dex is an extremely friendly and social boy. He is rambunctious and still lacking his basic manners but he does great with people. He has been around a variety of people including children and has always been very friendly. Dex is a big people-pleaser and would make an amazing sport dog in the right hands. He is an energetic, athletic, and eager young boy. He is also sensitive though and needs a handler that understands you can't just bully a dog into everything. With the proper reinforcements Dex is willing to take on the world for his people.

Dex loves other dogs! How much they love him could be debated as he doesn't have a lot of social manners but he loves to play. He is already a very large dog but it doesn't look like anyone explained that to him so he can be a bit rough when he plays. He has some very tolerant friends and learned to avoid some less tolerant ones. Although very rough and tumble Dex truly enjoys other dogs and would do great in a home with another energetic and playful dog.

Dex is a very energetic and intense dog. He is going to require a job to keep his mind and body focused and prevent any bad habits. Dex would excel in dog sports or even just advanced obedience (once he conquers basic of course). Regardless of the job he is given Dex will require plenty of productive energy outlets as his off button has not been fine tuned. Dex is searching for a home that will provide him with training, exercise, and adventure.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dex, a Louisville 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 Louisville, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Louisville.

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