Salem-I need a dog person!'s Story...
Please contact Peggy ( for more information about this pet.

Salem has a very sad story, her life has been anything but good up until this point. She has been passed around by people who couldn't give her the time of day and teach her anything. She is now about 15 months old and weighs 60 lbs. She is currently in a home with other dogs and is learning how to be a normal dog. Salem seems to be ok with submissive dogs but may have issues with dominant ones. She is possessive of her toys so we would like to place her as an only dog or only a dog that is submissive. She does have play time with the submissive dog in the home but toys are picked up. She is still young and will be a wonderful companion to someone willing to show her the way. Salem is curently attending obedience training to help her build her confidence and become the best she can be.  We are finding out that Salem may need to be an only pet, no cats or other dogs, and there should be no children younger than 15.  Salem needs a dog savvy person.  A foster home is becoming urgent since she has to be separated from some of the dogs at her current temporary home. Salem is housetrained, crate trained and is a very playful girl. PLEASE HELP SALEM, SHE DESERVES IT. If interested in Salem, please call Laura @ 330-536-6550 or Peggy @ 440-984-7014 or 440-452-1619.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Salem-I need a dog person!, a Elyria German Shepherd Dog/Akita dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Akita for sale in Elyria, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Akita dog from a breeder in Elyria.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elyria 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 Elyria 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/Akita breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Akita rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elyria paves the way for another one to be saved.
