Major's Story...
NOTE: This is a courtesy posting for another rescuer. Please do not contact ARRF, as we do not know this dog personally. Be sure to contact the foster or organization directly from the information listed below.

My name is Major. I'm a neutered male Shepherd blend, mostly a soft tan brown with shield of white fur on my chest. I am 5 years old, and I weigh 69 lbs. On a recent outing, I had a great time. I rode in the car, which I like. I met lots of other dogs, we all got along great. I met lots of people and kids and liked all of them! I know "sit" and "shake" and take treats very gently. I like to be with my person. I enjoy going for walks on a leash, but I'm also happy just sitting or lounging around. I am a low key, mellow guy who doesn't get excited even when other dogs around me do. I learn quickly and am ready for my forever home.

You can meet me at County of San Diego Department of Animal Services, 5480 Gaines Street, San Diego 92110. Open Tuesdays - Saturdays, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm. Closed Sundays, Mondays and holidays. For more information, go to .

When you come to see me at the shelter, ask to meet me because I'm in the back in a nice quiet area since I don't like being kenneled very much. Just ask for an "interact" with me, and my friends at the shelter will bring me into a little play yard to meet you!

Bring these numbers with you for identification:
My ID number is A1483656,
my necktag number is C103, and
my kennel number is C114.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Major, a Vista Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Vista, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Vista.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Vista 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 Vista 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Vista paves the way for another one to be saved.
