Izzy's Story...
S/F, 6 months, German shepherd/chow mix, 45 lbs and still growing

Hi! I am a 6 month old Chow Chow, German Shepherd mix. A kind family
found me with my mother when I was even more of a puppy than I am now.
We were way out on an isolated mesa top in New Mexico! My mom was very
ill so this nice family took us home. They fostered both of us for a
while and kept my mom but they figured I would be easily able to find
a good home. However, the NM shelter was full and I would have had a
very short life there but luckily I was transported to MaxFund! I have
liked everyone I have met so far - men, women and children - and get
along with other well mannered dogs. I have no experience with “cats”
so I don’t know if I would get along with one of them. I am a bit
afraid of new situations and need a family who will be patient. For
example, I traveled well from NM to Denver but I am wary of getting
into strange cars (a volunteer at MaxFund is helping me overcome this
right now). I think I would excel in positive reinforcement classes
since I am a smart girl who is eager to learn new things. My foster
family said I was also a good girl because I didn’t chew things other
than my toys and I didn’t dig up their garden! Please come by and meet
me – my name is Izzy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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