Rosie's Info...

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

Rosie's Story...
"Rosie" is an 8-mos old spayed female GSD who is very sweet and playful. Rosie is very affectionate with her people, and friendly with strangers. We do no not know how she is with small children, but her sweet temperament indicates that she'll be just fine. Rosie loves to play with other dogs, and plays typically GSD-rough. (Ideally, Rosie's permanent home will have a medium-to-large size dog that will want to engage in Rosie's rough style of play.) Rosie has not been around cats that we know of, so I will only consider homes w/out cats for her. Rosie is an average-size female GSD, and at the time of posting weighed approx 50 lbs. Her back is somewhat sloped, but not severely so.

Rosie is housetrained and sleeps in a crate at night--though only for the sake of the female Beagle in the house who doesn't care for Rosie's rough style of play. She loves to go for walks and does well on a leash. Rosie is fairly well behaved for her age, but is still learning basic obedience. She still wants to jump up on people when she is excited, but has improved considerably in the short time that her caretakers have had her. She is also receiving professional training, and the trainer has offered to provide two free sessions if Rosie's adopter is near where he lives. Rosie loves to play with toys, especially those that squeak.

Rosie's former owners purchased her as a puppy from a backyard breeder. When Rosie developed a non-contagious condition called demodectic mange (demodex), the adopters returned her to the breeder (sometime in October). The breeder didn't want Rosie and wasn't willing to pay to treat her demodex (which was not severe to being with and is now almost completely gone). The veterinarian who saw Rosie passed word on about her dire situation, and a couple in Wheatland took her in on October 12. Originally, they planned to adopt Rosie, but again, Rosie is just too rough a player for their Beagle so they are now seeking Rosie a permanent home through GSRSV.

GSRSV has evaluated Rosie and is placing her as a "Program Dog." This means that GSRSV is seeking a new home for Rosie through its adoption program while her caretakers continue to care for her. Rosie's adoption fee is $300.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosie, a Pleasant Grove 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 Pleasant Grove, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Pleasant Grove.

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