Mama Bear's Info...

Mama Bear's Story...
Introducing Mama Bear. She is the mother of our litter of 5 puppies, all of whom been adopted. Sadly, this was not her first litter. But it's her last! Now it's Mama Bear's turn to live a comfy, easy life.

She is a German Shepherd. She's approximately 5 years old but had such a hard life. Scars & torn ear to name a few signs. She is absolutely the sweetest! No food aggression even though she came to us extremely under weight. No issues with humans even though some disgusting humans obviously didn't treat her nicely. Great with other dogs and seems to be okay with dog savvy cats so far.

The former "owners" packed up and abandoned Mama Bear and her pups, leaving them to fend for themselves in an empty warehouse. Mama Bear through it all remains loving and kind and smart.

From her foster: "Mama Bear is just sweet, kind and gentle. Most of her day is spent relaxing on the couch as she is very laid back. At our adoption events she greets all the kids with a kiss. Before her puppies were adopted, she would always check on them but always let people handle them. She has no separation anxiety, not a barker, and no destructive behavior. When I'm away, she hangs out with my dogs in the living room. She gets along great with my large and small dog. She gives my big dog kisses and allows her to do everything first. With my cranky senior yorkie who is blind & deaf, she gives her space. She is good on leash and in the car and fully house trained. She has a low grade heart murmur that does NOT need medication. It doesn't get in her way and otherwise in great shape. Mama Bear has been a great, low maintenance addition to my home."

We are a 501c3 non-profit organization. Adoption process includes an adoption contract and home check. Adoption fee for dogs are $300 - 500 and for cats are $175. All of our animals are fixed, vaccinated, and chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mama Bear, a Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

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