Missy's Story...
URGENT!! MISSY HAS BEEN AT THE MUNICIPAL SHELTER IN SAN FRANCISCO SINCE APRIL 7 AND COULD BE EUTHANIZED AT ANY TIME. I AM POSTING HER ON MY ADOPTAPET.COM PET LIST TO GIVE HER MORE EXPOSURE.

"Missy" is a friendly, approx 9-yo female GSD mix at the San Francisco animal shelter in urgent need of adoption or a foster home. Missy was surrendered by her owners of 6 years on April 7 due to a move to Texas and a claim that they could not take Missy with them.

Here's what Missy's owners had to say about her: "Very friendly with people and ok with cats--she lived with one and she also lived with another dog. Friendly with people; loves to be petted and handled. Knows sit, stay and some other basic commands. Lives inside the house day & night and is housebroken. Eats dry food only Purina senior brand."

Missy did well in nearly all aspects of her adoption evaluation at the shelter except the "hug" part, during which she air snapped at the evaluator. For this reason, the shelter failed her for adoption and listed her as "rescue only."

Missy was stressed at the shelter from the moment she was dumped there, so it's no surprise that she snapped at the evaluator when she was hugged. In the very words of the evaluator, "Missy was pacing in her kennel when tester approached. She sniffed tester's hand and wagged her entire body and stepped right into the slip lead. She walked out of the ward with no issues.....She crawled toward tester and exposed her belly.......she was cooperative for all handling until the vet hug......She passed dog/dog when she met Fred, a 9 year old Pit mix. No reactivity all all, dogs walked passed each other a couple of times and then met nose to nose and sniffed each other's hind quarters. No play ensued, but no aggression."

No rescue group had stepped up for Missy by April 22 and it's likely that none will due to her age. Though the SF shelter has listed Missy as "rescue only", they have agreed to let her be adopted by a person who has been pre-screened by GSRSV and who is aware of why Missy failed her adoption evaluation.

If you would like to either consider Missy for adoption or foster her for GSRSV, please contact Brian at either 916-655-3125 or bab432@msn.com ASAP.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Missy, a Pleasant Grove 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 Pleasant Grove, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Pleasant Grove.

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