BUDDY **adoption pending!**'s Story...
10/15/16 - ADOPTION PENDING!!!

Buddy is an approximately 4 year old German shepherd dog. This poor guy has had a rough life. He came into foster care with us 1.5 years ago from a shelter in eastern Idaho as an emaciated, ill canine. We are happy to say that Buddy's medical situation has turned around...180 degrees! It has been a long journey for us, but well worth it for this most deserving dog.

Buddy has been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. We are finally at a point where it is controlled and Buddy is now off all his medications and is a vigorous, happy dog. His weight has gone from 56 pounds to 80 pounds. He is currently on a raw diet and does well on it.

Buddy rides well in the car and LOVES to go with you. In a way that's not common to the breed, he truly loves all humans, including strangers. If you are looking for a guard dog, this is not your boy. He would rather commune with humans than question their intent. He does not bark at strangers, but would rather meet them! **Potential therapy dog here.**

Buddy gets along with all female dogs and some male dogs, but not all. He is housetrained, crate trained and has never been destructive in his foster home.

We are hoping to find a home for Buddy where his people will be home with him most of the day. If you work from home or are a fairly active retired person, we would love to talk to you.

Buddy does not require a fenced yard. He can scale a 6 foot fence, but it's only to come and find you! When you leave home, Buddy needs to be safely indoors and accepts being crated, especially if you give him a treat to "kennel up".

Buddy has been through a basic obedience course and graduated! If you adopt Buddy and are local to the Boise area, you will be provided with a private class that will get you started on Buddy's training method. He does still pull on leash sometimes and needs to be reminded...a work in progress, but knows the basics.

Buddy's adoption fee is $200. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.

Someone will get back to you within 48 hours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BUDDY **adoption pending!**, a Nampa 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 Nampa, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Nampa.

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