Choice's Story...
Hi, My name is Choice.

I like people and any ball, and chasing everything that moves and walks and water and sleeping in my crate….oooo and I LOVE car rides!!! My foster’s think I might have been a mom because I play really good with the foster puppy in the house. I like other dogs but sometimes I’m a little rough and then I get in trouble. I sometimes forget that cat’s aren’t play toys but most of the time I remember with my foster cat sister.

My fosters think I might be 3-4 years old cause I have a lot of energy and I only have a couple of grey hairs. They say I’m a level 3 because sometimes I forget who I’m supposed to listen to, me or my foster parents. They say I’m stubborn but it’s only cause there are much funner things out there than listening; I just want to play. I’m learning though. Ok, that’s all I know about me, but my foster mom wants to say something too.

Choice is a very sweet girl. She shows dominant tendencies which would need to be managed. She could be in a multi-dog home with the right other dog and an experienced handler. She is an extremely confident dog and meets new things, people and experiences head on. She is quite possibly from a working line lineage.

Choice is a level 3 dog who is living at a foster home in the south bay

Choice is currently residing in San Jose with 2 male dogs and is playing well with them. While she does play well with dogs, she does not necessarily need a brother or sister as long as her new family gives her lots of attention.

She is not cat friendly.

Choice was found as a stray and picked up at the San Martin shelter. Not much is known about her but she appears to have had at least one litter of puppies. She was spayed just recently prior to entering the program.

This little girl appears to have had some training although not much. She knows “sit” and “down” however “stay” needs a lot of work. Choice appears to have some dominant tendencies and will need a strong leader to work and train with.

Training is a MUST for this little girl and she would do best with someone who wants to make her apart of everyday tasks. She is crate trained and can easily stay in it over night or for a few hours during the day.

Choice is a level 3 dog.

Your first step to adopt any of our wonderful German Shepherds is to complete our
Adoption Questionnaire
. While you're on our website take a moment and view the other adoptable German Shepherds .


After we receive your online Adoption Questionnaire, we will call you to begin the adoption process. We encourage potential adopters to come to one or more Adoption Days, because that is the best way to meet several German Shepherds and to find your new companion. If you attend an Adoption Day and choose a dog, you may be able to adopt the same day, if all adoption requirements are met.
If you cannot come to any Adoption Day, we can still assist you, this may take longer because the people who will help you are volunteers who usually have jobs, and scheduling meetings with dogs can be complex because our dogs live in many homes and kennels.


We do not adopt to homes outside of Northern California.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Choice, a Cupertino 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 Cupertino, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Cupertino.

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