Pippy's Story...
Hi! Do you have an active outdoor lifestyle and feel that a canine partner for your adventures would make life perfect? If so, look no further than my kennel at MaxFund! I am energetic, affectionate, and very good company!
My name is Pippy. I am about 7 months old and weigh 35 lbs. I’m a German Shepherd mix and I may grow a little more – or maybe not. I was abandoned by my family who left me behind in the yard when they moved. A nice neighbor saw what had happened and kindly brought me to MaxFund to find a forever family. I am a little nervous here at the shelter since everything is unfamiliar but I am getting more relaxed as I settle in and I am making lots of friends among the staff, volunteers and other dogs!

I may be a little shy when you first meet me but that’s just because I don’t want to be pushy. I get along with both adults and children. Cats are fine by me, as long as they like dogs of course. I very much enjoy playing with other dogs and I also enjoy playtime with humans. Water sports are great. I wish the paddling pool here at MaxFund was bigger so I could swim. However, it’s really fun paddling and when I jump in I like making a big splash - whooppee!

I walk well on a leash. I may pull a bit at first because I am soooo happy to get out but I do settle down. I am also fine with car rides so we will be able to go on trips with no problems there! I haven’t had much (any?) formal training but I can “sit” nicely. I just need a few more positive reinforcement classes to hone my skills. I believe it helps that I am quite treat-motivated! I am mostly housetrained but I will likely need some guidance when I get to your home.

Please come and take me for a walk so we can get to know each other better. I promise that I will be a loyal, loving and lively companion!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pippy, a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog 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 breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
