Starlynn's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Starlynn's Story...
Adoption fee on this dog is $300.

Starlynn (aka Momma) and her puppies came to us 4 days after she gave birth. Her elderly owners surrendered her because they could not physically care for the puppies. She is a beautiful black and tan German Shepherd; that is approximately 3 years old.

It is apparent from her physical condition that this was not her first litter of puppies. The puppies are now 8 weeks old and have been weaned off of Momma. Starlynn is ready to start her new life as just a dog.

She came to us with no house or leash manners but has learned some basic commands. She is currently fostered in a home with 2 adult males and loves to play with them, now that her nursing duties are done. She also has some ball drive. Starlynn will fetch the ball, release it on command, and then sit waiting for you to throw it again.

Starlynn is very affectionate with her humans and loves to have her belly rubbed. She is still very bouncy and jumps up when she is excited, so a home with older children would be a better fit for her.

She is small dog reactive and has some prey drive. She has not been tested with cats but based on her prey drive, it would not be advised. Starlynn will do best in an active home with a large male to play with.

She will need a home that will continue her training and socialization, as she can be quite determined to have things her way.

This dog is a Level 2. Please be sure you understand what a dog of this Level requires. Go to our GCGSR Dogs page for an explanation of the Dog Rating Levels.

For more information and to see when this dog will be attending an Adoption Day, please see our Dogs page on our main website at www.gcgsr.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Starlynn, a Modesto 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 Modesto, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Modesto.

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