Mickey - ADOPTION PENDING!'s Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Mickey - ADOPTION PENDING!'s Story...
This handsome boy with soulful eyes is Mickey. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter only hours before being put down. We estimate Mickey to be 2-3 years old and he weighs around 75lbs. He is up-to-date on his shots, neutered and housebroken. He came to us heartworm positive and has received treatment for this condition - he has a clean bill of health now. Mickey is crate trained and knows basic obedience. He is good with other dogs and is not interested in cats.

Mickey had a hard start in life - he is a victim of abuse. He was hit by hand and with the leash and he still expects such treatment from strangers. Mickey is nervous around new people and needs to get to know them at his own pace. Once he knows the person, they are his best friends. Someone also used abusive training methods with this boy, and he is also nervous about collar corrections. Mickey can only be trained with positive reinforcement. We are looking for a very special home for this handsome boy - someone with patience to continue building Mickey's self-confidence and to gradually expose him to the world, at Mickey's pace. Mickey will reward his family with love and loyalty.

Mickey is wonderful in his foster home. He is very loving, happy, playful and affectionate. The first time he was exposed to toys was in his foster home. He LOVES to fetch and loves his toys. He always carries his ball around. He was skinny when he came to us and still eats as if he didn't know if there is a next meal. He is smart and easy to train, he would do anything for food. Mickey is also very agile, and would excel in obedience or agility. He loves to be brushed and petted.

If you can offer a very special home to this very special boy please submit an adoption application. If you cannot offer a home to Mickey, please consider sending him a toy, he loves them so much that his toys don't last long.

Mickey must go to an indoor home where he will be an important part of the family. We do not adopt to anyone under the age of 21. Our adoption fee is $250.

Note: We do not have a shelter location. Our dogs are kept in foster homes as part of a family, to help prepare them for transition into their forever homes. If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs, please contact us by clicking on the email address to your right. We will be glad to make arrangements for a meeting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mickey - ADOPTION PENDING!, a Nesbit 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 Nesbit, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Nesbit.

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