Ringo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Ringo's Story...
Ringo is a serious GSD bi-color with intelligence, strong prey drive and loyalty to his owner. His former owners turned him in to the pound when he was 6 years old because they couldn't afford to take care of him. However, it's apparent that they never did take care of him. He had heartworms and every other kind of parasites. His ears were flybitten. We finished heartworm treatment and he's learned the normal commands (sit, stay, down, shake, etc.). Ringo doesn't know how to play yet, though we're working on that. He's affectionate and as he's gained more freedom, he's blossomed into a wonderful boy. He gets along with 2 other rescue dogs and shows no aggressive behaviors toward them. He does stalk squirrels, deer, neighborhood dogs on leash, etc. He eats what he catches. He was adopted out once and he got hold of a cat. Fortunately, the owner was able to save the cat. And Ringo was returned to me. So it's imperative that he doesn't have access to cats in his forever home. Even if he sensed a cat nearby, he'd probably bark like crazy (he barks at squirrels, which can be very annoying). He also has the most beautiful howl when he hears sirens.

Ringo is now in perfect health and weighs 80 lbs. He's good on leash as long as he doesn't see a deer (we're working on that).

He's a special boy who deserves a wonderful home, finally. So if you don't have cats nearby and don't mind barking and don't have neighbors who care about barking and if you don't expect a playful, ball-chasing dog, but want a serious companion who loves to be with you, including sleeping in your bed, then Ringo just might be the right dog for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ringo, a Conyers 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 Conyers, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Conyers.

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