Lightning's Story...
IDGSR WELCOMES LIGHTNING INTO THE SAFETY OF THE RESCUE!!!

IDGSR VOLUNTEERS rescued Lightning, Storm (adopted) and Thunder from literally a pig pen of a dog kennel. All were in terrible condition and extremely neglected by their former owner who thought what he was doing was acceptable care. Those standards are sub-par and do not set well with us, we find the treatment of companion animals this way despicable. Despite that horrible care, these kids still love people. Lightning is a calm and loving boy and he gives his heart to you FAST! He is a velcro dog and will follow you everywhere. He knows his new mom or dad or both need him and he wants to be available at a moment's notice just in case you feel you need to hug or pet him and he will comfort you with his kisses.

Lightning is a very calm boy, he is quiet and reserved, pretty amazing for a dog who was stuck living in pig pen conditions. Lightning will do fine with a medium to large breed female dog. He hangs out often with Harmony one of our other adoptees who is approx. 50 lbs.

If you would like to adopt this handsome sweetheart please apply by copying and pasting the link below to our application page.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lightning, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog 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 German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
