Bentley's Story...

This giant 8 month old baby is already close to 100 lbs !! Bentley is a pure bred German Shepherd. Bentley was relinquished/surrendered to our rescue because they said he was "too much puppy for them"
When we probed further we found out they bought Bentley for their elderly parents as a gift when he was 8 weeks old. Their parents kept Bentley outside in a very small yard and never really made him a pet or indoor dog. So it would be no surprise he would be "too much" for anyone. The best thing they ever did for him was to give him up.
Bentley is a very sweet, slightly shy puppy. He is calm and respectful of people. He takes a few minutes to warm up because of his lack of socialization. But doesn't have a bad bone in his body.
Since being with us he has been completely crate trained. Child tested and can be placed in an experience home with children that are a bit older as he is so big and clumsy he could knock them over. He is learning to be social with other dogs. Big and small. Male and female and doing very well considering they are the first dogs he's ever met. He is shy around the more active dogs and better with the more quiet mellow dogs and his confidence builds daily. He is not dog aggressive at all. We have cat tested him. He listens well and can be placed with dog savvy cats but is a puppy and wants to chance them. He is starting to settle down nicely in the house.
Bentley is now neutered, up to date on all vaccines including rabies and microchipped.
Bentley would do best with another large breed female Shepherd or like breed.
Please have Shepherd, Husky and or bully breed experience before inquiring about Bentley.
Please tell us a little about yourself, family, kids and or other dogs or cats in the house, your lifestyle and activity level.

We do not place dogs on a first come first serve basis, but rather to the home best suited for them. An adoption fee, application, and contract are required.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bentley, a Van Nuys German Shepherd Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Van Nuys, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog puppy from a breeder in Van Nuys.

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