Mara in So Cal's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Mara in So Cal's Story...
Mara, approx 15 months old, was pulled from San Bernardino City Shelter in Southern Califonia on June 14, 2012. She had 7 babies (6 boys, 1 girl), approx 4-5 weeks old when she was picked up as a stray. Mara was in pretty bad shape; wormy, emaciated, and exhausted. Her puppies were weaned right away to get her health back up. Mara wasn't sure how to interact with other dogs and wasn't too trusting of people. She has come a long way in a very short time.

She is a great house dog. Crate trained, potty trained, and very affectionate. The place she would like to be most is at your feet. She is suspicous of strangers and very cautious. If someone is getting too close to her yard or comes to the front door she will let you know through barking. She will approach the fence line hackled and barking. Mara is good with older children, but not with babies or young children.

Mara learned to play and be comfortable with other dogs thanks to the many willing to teach her. Toys are still new to her. She will run off with a ball, but still isn't quite sure what to do with it. She will run with the other dogs while they play, try to take the toy from them, but she hasn't learned to fetch yet.

Mara is waiting for the right home to come along. She is ready to bond and settle into a stable life. Her spay surgery is scheduled for July 30. After her recovery she is ready to go!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mara in So Cal, a Jamestown Dutch Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dutch Shepherd for sale in Jamestown, or seeking a Dutch Shepherd dog from a breeder in Jamestown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jamestown 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 Jamestown 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 Dutch Shepherd breeders who help with Dutch Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jamestown paves the way for another one to be saved.
