Baylor's Story...
Hi there, my name is Baylor and I've been with my wonderful foster family for almost a month now. I am a purebred German Shepherd who recently left the breeding grounds. My past life has been a bit on the sad side, but that really doesn't matter. I'm looking forward, not back, so it’s all good!! Now that I've been with my foster family for some time I am realizing that life with loving humans (and possibly a sibling or two) is really a grand idea.

I have 3 foster siblings who have been great about teaching me the intricacies of being a family dog. So far this has included walking on a leash, notifying my people when I need to go outside, how to bark when someone rings the door bell, playing with and sharing toys, some basic commands, and how to find the best place to lay next to my foster mommy wherever she goes (she sometime refers to us as her rugs…not sure what she means by that?) My siblings have tried to teach me how to chase squirrels and birds out of the yard, but… HELLO… what a complete waste of time and energy! I just stand back and watch them practice their silly fence slamming routine and laugh as these little fence teasers cry out…”nanny nanny boo boo…you can't get me!”. Guess I am just a little more mature than the rest of the pack!

What else can I tell you about my awesome self…hmmm, let me think. Oh yeah, I am extremely beautiful, with a long flowing tail and a scrumptiously soft coat of fur. Although my favorite things to do are eat and curl up close to my foster mommy, I certainly enjoy playing an occasional game of chase or tug of war with my siblings. I also thoroughly enjoy going for walks and for rides in the car. I am not a huge fan of the crate, but I will hang out in it at times. As I don't have a lot of bad habits (I don't counter surf or chew my family’s belongings), my foster mommy has allowed me to roam the house while she’s been away for short periods and she says this is going well. I just get a little nervous when she leaves…but she always returns, so my confidence is growing. Since I had a somewhat difficult past, I respond best to positive reinforcement and soft spoken commands. Stern commands scare me and I tend to recoil in fear.

If you are looking for a gorgeous, gentle, moderate-energy, purebred German Shepherd, who wants nothing more than to please her owner, then I think we need to meet! One stroke of my luscious coat will certainly sell you….and I promise, you won't regret it one bit!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baylor, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Houston.

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