Kensington's Info...

Kensington's Story...
Kensington is a year and half old all white male GSD. He is a strikingly handsome boy who is high energy and a happy-go-lucky adolescent. Kensington will get into mischief when given the opportunity. In our home is our comic relief with his goofy puppy antics. “Kensy” gets along well with his two GSD foster sisters and when he gets to be too much responds to their corrections nicely. He is curious, smart, loving and silly.

Kensington knows sit and down, he is working on stay. He also knows the leave it command and waits for his meals nicely. Kensy walks well on the leash and is learning not to pull. He is housebroken and crate trained. He sleeps soundly all night. He does not mark. However, if you do not pick up on his signals to go out, he will take care of it himself. Don’t say he did not warn you. (That’s what he told us anyway.)

Kensington meets all dogs nicely, large and small. He can be a bit pushy but respects correction and responds very well. He may be cat workable with the right cat and if his new family is willing to take it slowly. Again, he is high energy and is a bit of a bull in a china shop so although he is good with children, they should be older. Although he would mean nothing by it, he would plow over a toddler.

His ideal home would be one where his people are not gone all day and they had another dog for him to play with. He requires a very secure yard; he can get over fences and will dig to get out. He does this when someone leaves and he wants to go with them. Kensy is a real people dog and would love to be with his family all the time if he could. Due to his energy structured obedience classes are an absolute must. His new family will need to be committed to his on going training. If this boy is left without leadership, boundaries and structure he will make some choices that no one will like. Kensington is very athletic and would love to be someone’s running partner and he may also be a great agility dog.

Kensington is a level 3 dog living in a foster home in Pacifica.

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

Kensington, 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.
