India's Info...

India's Story...
India is about 1 1 1/2 years old. She is VERY sweet and loving and gets along with both male and female dogs. She had a rough start as she fell out of a pick up truck and tumbled across a very busy street. A kind military person saw her fall out and stopped to help India. India just came bounding over to her and she got into the car. She was immediately taken to a vet who had her checked out. The top of her ear was bloody and but everything else checked out fine. She was full of fleas, but despite everything she'd just been through, she wagged her tail and placed her paw on her savior and was ready to go home with her.

The good samaritan took her and she did very well with her other 2 big male dogs; however she couldn't keep her because one of the males was very dominant; but India took everything in stride and just wanted to play with him and she even shared her food and toys with him!

India is very sweet, friendly and social. She comes right up to people for attention. She definitely is very human-focused. She follows her person everywhere and like a dog with ball drive, she hones in on the human, never taking her eyes off of them and does get anxious if she can't be near them. I am sure that is for fear she might be on her own again- she is however settling in and will be less anxious once she gets a forever home and a nice steady schedule. She is already making great progress. She is quite calm and seems easily trainable. She goes into the crate easily, and only whines for a few minutes.

She does great with other dogs when playing too- not too hyper. She does need some leash training as she pulls quite a bit on the leash but maybe she has never been on walks before with anyone. She's not very tall, easily managable and is not underweight. Her teeth are pretty white and she shows them off with her great smile.

Update 4/17/11
When the rescue had a spot for her, she spent the night at the person who was going to transport her to the rescue. She got along beautifully with the 2 female GSD's that lived there. India wasn't even in the house 5 minutes when she was already playing tug-of-war! She explored the yard, sniffed every body and just laid down with a ball at the transporters feet!

She is house trained and crate trained. She is not food aggressive and sits when asked to. She gently takes food from your hand and waits patiently for her dinner. India just seems to be a very happy girl who loves to be with both the two legged and four legged.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

India, 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.
