About Sally:
Sally is a super sweet, mellow, gentle and loyal Formosan Mountain dog mix. Despite of all the mishaps she went through, she remains extremely friendly to people and dogs. During her three months in the foster home, she transformed from shy and a bit reserved into a dog full of fun, joy and affection. For sure she will bring a lot of love and happiness to any family.

Rescued story:

Sally is very loyal as many of the Formosan Mountain Dogs are. She was found eating trash on the roadside by an old lady. The old lady was too old to take care of her and asked a young couple to take care of Sally. The young couple does not like dog and neither the patience to take care of Sally. The husband often physically abused her and sometimes even deprived her of food. Despite all these, Sally remained very loyal and faithful to the couple until the couple decided surrending Sally to the pound. Sally is a trooper and very resilient. Few months in foster home, she bounced back stronger than ever with lots of love and passion that can fill everyone heart. Give Sally a permanent home now and she will be the best furry member that you can find.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sally, a San Mateo 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 San Mateo, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in San Mateo.

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