I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Al's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Al's Story...
Today's the day. I just know it. Someone who loves older dogs will come take me home?
Will it be you?
Hi my name is Al and I am am 8 year old mixed breed. The shelter thinks I may have some Shep/Chow/Akita genes in me.
I don't know how I ended up at this place but boy am I nervous at the shelter. I just want to go home and be doted on with my family. I shake sometimes because I'm scared and, have some trouble seeing due to cataracts. I also have those nasty heart worms so I am praying for a rescue to notice me and help me heal.
I am a friendly guy and the ladies say I'm handsome. I play nice with other dogs, however I'm not fond of those kitty cat things. My favorite past time is basking in the sun and enjoying a yummy treat. I can be stubborn sometimes with moving around because my body aches and I am so unsure of this place. Will you save me and allow me to be the happy and loving dog that lies deep inside me?
Today has to be my day. I'm praying for my heart to be healed and filled with love. Please rescue me.
Love, Al
PS- My friends at the shelter filmed me and some friends that you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG3o4rwcj2Y and email them at friendsofleecounty@gmail.com if you can help me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Al, a Bishopville Akita/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Akita/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Bishopville, or seeking a Akita/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Bishopville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bishopville 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 Bishopville 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 Akita/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Akita/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bishopville paves the way for another one to be saved.
