Eli's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Eli's Story...

Eli is an approx. 2 yr. old male German Shepherd who has not known a good life previous to coming to the rescue. Eli has known much hardship, hate and starvation. Anyone who would fail to meet the basic needs of their animals is a cruel person.

Since coming into the rescue Eli has gained about 30 lbs. He looks so much better and is feeling a lot better too. He eats with much gusto and gets all his daily supplements and Life is good but will be so much better when he has his own family. Eli will do best with a helper dog, a nice large breed female will be good for him to live with, he will follow her everywhere.

Eli has come a long way but there are still times that must remind him of his previous life. He cowers down in fear if you go to grab his collar to get him to do something and it's so sad to see this noble fellow be afraid that we would hurt him. He loves the kindness we show him and he is so humble and grateful for the kindness. Eli will need a patient adopter who will help him to have a happy life.

If you would love to give Eli the new loving home and life he wishes for, please fill out an application on our website and we will call you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Eli, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Portland.

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