Keno's Story...
Keno is a 4 year Sharpei / Shepherd cross. She was a feral dog who was born wild and was not handled by people until she was almost 2 years old. She has been in foster care for almost two years now and is a vastly different dog than the one we rescued. She even recently passed her basic obedience classes with a high score! However, Keno sometimes does not behave like what you might normally expect. For example, she will likely never get over her fear of new situations or strangers. It would be best if she had another dog in the house to help her learn the ropes, one who would act as a calm, stabilizing role model. Keno is a very sweet girl who she has never displayed any signs of aggression, but we think that children & small animals are too unpredictable (and sometimes too loud!) for her to live with. We feel that she would do best in a cat-free and child-free home. She is a great companion who loves car rides, going to the dog park, playing in the water, and she loves to play with people as well as with other dogs. She is quiet and clean in the house and can be quite goofy at times!

If you would like to adopt this special girl, please call RJ at 403-837-7442

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Keno, a Okotoks German Shepherd Dog/Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Shar Pei for sale in Okotoks, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Okotoks.

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