Riley's Story...
Meet Riley. This handsome guy is about 2 year old and searching for his forever home. He has a very positive attitude and just adores attention from people. He gives hugs too! He will be a welcomed addition to your home. Riley was heartworm positive and his treatment is complete now, he has to wait six months for his neuter(November) but he isn't a leg lifter! He really wants to play with an active family who can look past the fact he WAS sick and is healthy now. He is our longest resident at the shelter(1 year on 8/31/12), part of that was due to the backorder of heartworm treatment from the maufacturer and then the treatment time, now it's just waiting for someone to fall in love with his goofiness!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Riley, a Belvidere 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 Belvidere, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Belvidere.

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