Meeka's Info...

Meeka's Story...
Meet Meeka! This wonderful shepherd mix weighs about 75 pounds. She is easy to care for and already housebroken and crate trained!

She does not live with other dogs right now and can be a little shy when meeting them. She is unsure of exactly how to play and because of her size, she can intimidate them sometimes. She does best when she is with calmer dogs like her – just hanging out. She does very well with cats and has proven to be quite gentle. She'll sometimes tries to play with them and if the cat runs, she chases. We do not think she wants to hurt them, but chasing is just too tempting.

Meeka has met many new people since we have had her, including kids! She has done wonderfully with all of them. She is very well behaved, even with the small kids, and knows not to jump on anyone. She does like to give kisses though, so the small ones are just the right height for that!

She is a very laid back dog and enjoys a few short walks every day. She could go for some hikes if you wanted, but she doesn’t need them to release her energy. She is great inside the house and just likes to hang out – she does like to be with her people though and usually wants to be wherever they are.

Meeka is a smart girl and already knows sit and shake. Her foster family is going to work on some new tricks too! She would be great to do some training classes, like nose work! She is incredibly easy going and low maintenance – a great addition to just about any family!

To ensure our dogs are placed in a safe environment, we require a home visit for all adoptions. Because of this, we typically only adopt to homes within 30 minutes of Athens, GA. If you are further away than that and are interested in one of our pups, please still fill out an application and we can discuss your options. Please understand that you would be responsible for all transportation - meeting the dog, picking the dog up to start a trial, returning the dog should he/she not be a good fit, etc. Please visit our website for more info.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Meeka, a Athens 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 Athens, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Athens.

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