Kammy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Kammy's Story...
Kammy is a beautiful, friendly, well behaved young girl. She is great with other dogs, cats and kids of any age. The fact she only has three legs does not cause her any issues and she can keep up with other dogs quite well. She loves going for walks, playing with other dogs or snuggling on the couch. Kammy is affectionate, obedient and an overall lovely companion.

Kammy was found and picked up by animal control when she was struck by a car and left for dead. When she was seen by the veterinarian he realized that her leg was not only broken but was completely shattered beyond repair. Although her family was found, they decided they didn’t want to pay the cost of amputating the leg and so relinquished ownership of her to the pound. Luckily she found her way to rescue. In having the leg amputated it was also found that Kammy was suffering from heartworm. That too has now been taken care of and she is totally clear of heartworm however as a preventative she will need to be kept on heartworm medication for the rest of her life. Normally you should have your dog on heartworm for most of the year regardless so the added expense of a few extra months is minimal.

Kammy is now in good health and her coat is gradually starting to grow back in where it had to be shaved for both the amputation and the heartworm treatment but she is a gorgeous girl none the less. She will make an exceptional family pet and companion. Kammy has had all of her vaccinations updated including rabies and bordetella, has been spayed, dewormed, mico-chipped and has been given a clean bill of health. She will also come with a 6 month supply of heartworm preventative.

Here is what her foster family had to say about Kammy:

Kammy is a loving and gentle soul. She truly embodies the meaning of the word “companion.” Even though Kammy has been through a lot in her short life, she has taken everything in stride and is simply a wonderful dog. Kammy is very friendly with everyone she meets but will bond strongly to her “person.” She enjoys the company of other dogs and cats and is very gentle with first meetings. She will sit, lay down, stay and shake a paw on command. Kammy is also house-trained but could benefit from a refresher on leash training.

Kammy is a very sweet and well behaved girl. She is quiet in the home, but will let you know when someone is at the door. Despite her disability, Kammy is able to walk and even run around with ease. She does get tired easier then most dogs her size but would love to find a home where she will be able to go on daily walks. Kammy would also love to have a backyard to play in and somewhere to sun herself on the warmer days. Along with her wonderful personality, Kammy is an absolutely beautiful dog. She gets many compliments from people while walking, so much so that most some people don’t even notice she is one leg short initially.

If you think you have the right home to offer this lovely girl, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kammy, a Hamilton 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 Hamilton, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

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