Tara's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Tara's Story...
"Tara" is a beautiful 2½-yr old spayed female GSD with a wonderful temperament. Tara is one of those dogs that right off the bat you can tell gets along with everyone and every dog. She even gets along with cats! She's also good with young kids--no surprise here. Tara is a medium-sized GSD, and weighs about 55
lbs.

Tara is completely housetrained, though her former caretaker Jessica kept her outside because Jessica's cats (both old and crotchety) didn't want to have anything to do w/ Tara's playful advances. She walks well on leash once her initial excitement settles down. Tara still has puppy-like energy and has not received much training, so she will jump up on people in her exuberance. She does obey the command "sit", though!

Jessica rescued Tara at the last minute from her neighbor, who was planning to take Tara to a shelter when his rental house was foreclosed. The neighbor kept Tara outside exclusively, but obviously treated her well because she shows no signs of abuse. Jessica had Tara for about four months before surrendering her to GSRSV on 9-19-11 due to her own house foreclosing and the issue with her cats.

A woman in Davis began to foster Tara for GSRSV on 9-20, and she's doing great there. Tara's adoption fee is $250.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tara, a Pleasant Grove 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 Pleasant Grove, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Pleasant Grove.

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