Xander's Story...

Xander is a gorgeous 2 year old, long coat black and red neutered male German Shepherd. He was an owner surrender to a DC shelter. All other German Shepherd rescues passed him up and he was out of options. The shelter called to ask if we could make room for him. His assessment at the shelter was unremarkable, but we sent him to spend some time with trainers to assess his temperament before making him available for adoption. The trainers report he has a good temperament, shows no aggression toward other dogs, and is friendly with all people who approach him, however children and cats are unknown. He is not food motivated, but responsive to commands. He also rides well in a car. In his previous home, he was left to his own devices and never had any structure or training.

Xander will need a home with previous German Shepherd experience and will need continued training with an approved trainer. Previous experience includes handling and training another pure bred German Shepherd as an adult. Approved trainers are trainers with whom TRD currently works.

Interested adopters may submit an adoption application online at www.trainingrescues.org. For inadtional information, please email info@trainingrescues.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Xander, a Alexandria 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 Alexandria, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Alexandria.

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