Lucy's Story...
IDGSR WELCOMES LUCY INTO THE SAFETY OF THE RESCUE!!!!

Lucy was an owner surrender to a kill shelter. She was adopted as a puppy and then at 8 months returned. The reason? The adopter did free feeding with multiple dogs in the home with one food bowl for all of them. Discord was occurring and Lucy was sent away. At IDGSR we feed the dogs separately in their crates and as soon as they are done they go out to potty. We would never advocate this method of feeding dogs all in one bowl. It's a recipe for disaster.

Since Lucy has been at the rescue she has been an ever loving dollbaby with us and the other dogs here. She is with a group of 7 dogs and gets along fine with all of them. This lovely sweet girl is remarkable.

If you would like to make Lucy part of your family, please fill out an application on our website.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucy, a Portland Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Portland, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
