Sarge's Story...
Sarge is a handsome short-haired GSD with black and tan markings. His long and lean frame is accentuated by his beautiful markings. Sarge is a young dog that came to GSRNE after his owners realized that this active male needed more time and attention than they were able to give to him. Although it was a hard decision for the family, Sarge’s owners wanted to make sure this young and vibrant GSD had the opportunity to reach his full potential and become an active member of a household.

Sarge is an extremely loving GSD that enjoys life to the fullest. His foster family describes Sarge as the kid who shows up to school everyday just happy, ready for class and the one who wants to be the first in line in order to experience all new adventures.

Sarge is very much a people person and he is eager to greet his people whether he has been away from them for a few hours or even just a few minutes. If Sarge were allowed to, he would be a seventy-five-pound lap dog, but instead he settles for an opportunity to lie next to his person and rest his muzzle on his/her feet.

Sarge is extremely eager to please and has responded well to initial obedience training. He does, however, still engage in some adolescent behavior, such as mouthiness, that a potential adopter will need to continue to work through. Sarge has already demonstrated his ability to give one hundred percent of his attention to any task at hand and this trait suggests he will thrive in a structured environment that provides training and exercise.

Sarge would make a wonderful family dog. In his foster home, Sarge lives with children who have taken a keen interest in their new GSD companion. Sarge sits patiently and attentively as the younger members of his household give him commands and require him to demonstrate obedience skills. Also, Sarge takes frequent walks in the woods with his foster family. Sometimes, the family separates as some members of the household forge ahead while others slow to follow animal tracks. Sarge constantly watches his entire “pack” on these walks, running back and forth between the two groups to ensure that all members of his foster family are together and safe. At home, Sarge demonstrates the same loyal and protective instincts as he runs into rooms to check in on everyone to make sure they are all present and accounted for.

Sarge would enjoy life with an active family and would be a willing participant on family hikes, snowshoe adventures, trail runs, or any other activity that would allow him to spend time exercising with his owner(s). Sarge routinely engages in games of fetch in his foster family’s back yard and also appreciates regular play session with his canine foster brother. As a young dog, Sarge will require daily exercise in order to be content and settled.

Sarge currently lives with another canine in his foster home, but he does have a tendency to want to be “top dog” so canine introductions will need to be carefully managed. Continued socialization is a must for Sarge and this young boy would benefit greatly from a GSD-savvy owner who can help guide Sarge through canine interactions. Sarge needs someone who will not shy away from dog introductions, but rather someone who understands that Sarge needs to continue to meet and interact with other dogs so that he fully understands what behaviors are expected and desired.

All in all, Sarge is just a wonderful dog with amazing potential. He is young, smart, eager to please and will be a terrific addition for someone who can dedicate some time an energy to help him develop into a GSD that possesses all of the traits we love about this breed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sarge, a Wayland 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 Wayland, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Wayland.

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