This beautiful boy comes to us from Iran. We were told that he was hanging around a school and being attacked by the kids. He was literally starving when we found him. Whatever happened to him, he is fearful of men . When he would meet a man he would become painfully shy and wouldn't move much. We have begin socializing him and he has vastly improved but he still needs to be gently handled and needs to come to people in his own time. Despite his awful past, Happy suits his name. He is forever smiling, joyful and is completely lovable and adorable. He loves to go for walks and loves people. Once he trusts, he bonds easily. He is eager to be loved. He is good out in public and well behaved. He loves to play and will bark his little puppy bark out of sheer joy when he sees one of his caregivers. He also "speaks" which is completely adorable. He is super smart and has already learned the command SIT. Whoever takes this little guy into their home will have the most grateful, loving and happiest companion possible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Happy - Iran Pup, a Encino Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Foxhound puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Foxhound for sale in Encino, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Foxhound puppy from a breeder in Encino.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Encino 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 Encino 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Foxhound breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Foxhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encino paves the way for another one to be saved.
