Athena's Info...

Athena's Story...
Athena is a sable AKC GSD - a sweet timid girl she loves to be in MOTION! She has been through several obedience classes and has earned her AKC Canine Good Citizen Award previously. She is an observant girl with lots of bounce and knows many commands! Athena is looking for new owner(s) that can be active with her, hiking, running or taking trips around town! She needs a stronger leader, like many GSDs do, and would benefit with someone that would take an obedience class with her or has GSD experience. Athena has an eye condition and will need daily eye medication. She is good with children, but forgets that younger children can get knocked over, therefore would do better with children over 5. She is house broken, previously spayed and kennel trained. She has lived with a cat and has lots of doggy friends. She would be happiest with an owner that works from home or where she can come to work with you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Athena, a Silverton 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 Silverton, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Silverton.

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