Machete's Story...

ATTENTION: Due to an overwhelming amount of applications for Machete, we will not be accepting anymore at this time so we can sort through the ones we currently have. Thank you to all who have shown interest in adopting Machete!

Affectionate, 14-month old Machete is a German Shepherd who has been the light of his family’s life since they first beheld him at 8 weeks old. Unfortunately, due to a sudden change of financial and circumstantial reasons this sweet, kind, friendly, fun 55lb boy is in need of a home immediately.  He has lived his entire life with a baby, young children, teenagers and adults. For example, he has been observed playing with a young family member that is holding a sandwich and still focus on the toy, not grabbing the food from the child. He is a great dog for an active family. A house with a fenced in yard is preferable for him since he loves to play outside. Some of his favorite games to play are soccer and fetch. He is very obedient and even knows not to run into the street if the ball happens to go there. He also knows sit, paw, drop it, and come all without any formal training. He could use some training walking on leash however, he is a puller. He needs a stronger handler at this time. He has been doing very well in dog parks as well.  He barks when he meets people who come to his home at first too, but, then after a few moments he is super friendly and affectionate.  He is also a great guard dog.  He enjoys being brushed too and has a very healthy, shiny coat. Machete is a very healthy dog. He would be great for an active family who has a lot of time to devote to him, and would be fine with another dog in the family. He is also cat tested and gets along with them! He is extremely playful, attentive and affectionate. He will need to be neutered upon adoption as well as go under a hernia surgery. Other than that he is healthy and ready to find his furever home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Machete, a Westwood 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 Westwood, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Westwood.

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