Angel's Story...
IDGSR Welcomes Angel into the Safety of the Rescue.
This sweet precious girl was rescued off craigslist where her owner wanted 'rid' of her right away, our volunteers feared for the dogs life based on owner statements. This is why we can't emphasize enough to never ever give away pets on craigslist. Angel has been tested and evaluated and we are learning more about her daily. She is as sweet as her name implies, however as with any dog or person none are perfect and have their faults. As you can see during testing, Angel showed us she was not friendly to cats, which doesn't surprise us. We see this
often enough, it doesn't mean she's not worth saving, she really is. Angel is fine with dogs of all ages both males and females, she will crate fine, has nice doggie manners, handles well, child friendly, however she is a fence climber. She will need to be leash walked or have 6ft fencing to prevent this, though she doesn't try to escape when you are there with her in the backyard.
She will come to you when called and though she has climbed the fence here, she doesn't go anywhere, we believe she all ready feels comfortable and safe however for some reason instinctively she feels the need to climb over if you are not present with her.
A family without a fenced yard is fine as long as they realize that at all times she must be leash walked for potty breaks.
Angel is a great companion, she's quiet, friendly and engaging. She has nice doggie manners and she is waiting for her furever family to say "Welcome Home, Angel, Welcome Home".

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Angel, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Portland.

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