Melissa's Story...
Melissa is a very sweet two-year-old who loves being around people and other dogs. She is in a foster home with two other German Shepherds and one cat. She was shy her first day. On day two she was running and playing with the family dogs. She has no interest in cats. She avoids the family cat.

Melissa is very affectionate, and loves to be petted. She will fall asleep in your arms if you pet her while watching TV. She is very well behaved. She is friendly to people who stop by to visit. She will gently take treats from your hand. Melissa follows her foster family from room to room. She loves being with them, but she is not a pest. She is well behaved when company is over. She will make a great addition to anyone looking for a sweet girl. She is crate trained with no signs of separation anxiety when her foster family leaves the house.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Melissa, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Houston.

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