Hercules's Story...
Birthdate: 3/7/11

Gender: Male

Breed: German Shepherd/Boxer/Lab mix

Siblings: Evelyn, Beth, Ruby, Scooby, Hercules, Buster, Chandler
Mom: Sammy

Such a huge name for such a little pup, and what a darling he is. “Hercules” brings to mind a big strong puppy, but Hercules is really a snuggle bunny. He would love nothing more than to curl up on your lap (while he still fits!) and fall sound asleep.

Momma Sammy had a bit of a long journey to get to this point. Back when she was a puppy herself, she had an owner and thought she would be with him forever. But when it came time for him to move to a new house, he decided not to take her with him. She would have loved to make the move and have fun at the new place, but he planned to take her for a drive to the dog pound instead.

A friend of his found out about this and offered to take Sammy off his hands because he knew she would likely have been euthanized at the pound. Although he saved her from that fate, she never went to the vet with him, which meant she was never spayed. When he chained her outside one January morning, she met the neighborhood Boxer.. and the rest was history. Two months later, she had a lot of work on her hands with little pups everywhere.

Which brings us to the present. As the pups became more mobile, Sammy’s new owner decided it was time for them to go, and history repeated itself. He decided to move, and Sammy wasn’t welcome at the new place.

Now Sammy and the whole brood are living at the shelter and searching for new homes.. homes that understand that it actually IS possible to plan ahead and take your dog with you when you move! That is one experience Sammy never wants to repeat yet again, and she never wants to see any of her kids lose their home.

Hercules is believed to be a German Shepherd/Lab/Boxer mix. His mother is approximately 55 pounds, and we’re expecting the puppies to be 50 to 60 pounds as adults. When you come to the shelter to meet the puppies, you can meet sweet Sammy as well. (Psst.. she’s searching for a great home, too.)

The puppies are not yet spayed/neutered, but they will be fixed BEFORE going home with their new families. If you’re interested in potentially adopting one of the pups, you can visit them at the shelter any time during adoption hours, Thursday through Sunday 5–8pm, or call 330–397–8270 to schedule a private appt outside of adoption hours.

Once you meet the pups and choose your favorite, you can fill out an adoption application. If approved, you must leave a 50% deposit ($100) to reserve your puppy. The puppies will be ready to spay/neuter at 8–10 weeks old. As soon as they are ready, they will be fixed, and your puppy can go home with your family the day after surgery.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hercules, a Struthers Boxer/German Shepherd Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Struthers, or seeking a Boxer/German Shepherd Dog puppy from a breeder in Struthers.

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