Tessie's Story...
Tessie came to us the second week of March as an underweight stray. She is possibly the most gentle and trusting dog we've ever had here. She is calm and quiet and well-behaved around new people, kids included, dogs, puppies, and cats (even crabby cats who bat her on the nose!).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tessie, a Alpena 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 Alpena, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Alpena.

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