Zach's Info...

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

Zach's Story...
Zach has always been loved and spoiled and continues to be in his home right now BUT his owner feels like he is too big for her physically as she has some health challenges and he is still a bit of a big puppy. He's had training so the only obedience issue is that he's very big and very very friendly. He needs a home that will continue to give him the love and affection he is used to. His owners are moving very soon and feel like this is a good time with a move already in his future to move him to a more suitable home.

He's LOVES furry squeeky toys and loves to play and cuddle. He does not have a lot pf prey drive so cats might be ok in the home. He doesn not have an aggresssive bone in his body, gentle giant is more like it. "Hide and Seek" behind his doghouse is a favorite game of his...he thinks he's being so crafty but usually you see either his ears sticking up or his tale wagging...but he seems to think this is great fun.

He has a twin bed next to a bay window where he lays during the day and watches for deer outside the fence. He’s never too far away from his person and sleeps on a very large dog bed in the bedroom at night. He's been to doggy daycare several times and the caretakers there have said he loves to play with the other dogs. He has a great bark but does use it very often- mostly to alert that another dog is coming down the road- just as an alert not aggressive. He’s good with his food, and the vet says he’s very good with baths and shots and exams.

He has not come from abuse or neglect so he is a great family dog that just needs a fresh start with a more active family- great opportunity to find a well balanced dog yet still in need. If you want a lovable big guy with loads of personality then come meet Zach, he may be just right for you!

Here's what Zach's previous owner says about him: He’s been a great dog, very big, very strong, extremely sweet tempered.

Zach loves to play and run, but not far or too long…he’s really a couch potato, although he doesn’t get on furniture. He has a twin bed in my den next to a bay window where he sleeps all day and watches for deer outside the fence. He’s never too far away from my side and sleeps on a very large dog bed in my bedroom at night.

He's been to doggy daycare several times and the caretakers there have said he loves to play with the other dogs and is not aggressive. A friend has also kept him for a week (she has a cat) and said he was wonderful, was curious about the cat but wasn’t aggressive. Other dogs he’ll bark at, but not aggressively. He’s not aggressive with food, and the vet and techs say he’s very good with baths and shots and exams. He’s such a good dog and deserves a great and active home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zach, a Dripping Springs 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 Dripping Springs, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Dripping Springs.

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