Shay's Story...

Shay has come to IDGSR because her owner did not have time to give her and she was in danger of going into the shelter system. We circumvented that and now Shay is safely in the rescue. Shay is an approx. 18 month old Sweetheart. Upon meeting her the first moment, she greeted me with a kiss on the chin. That told me right away what a true darling she is. Shay is a typical 18 month old pup, just like we call our children babies till they are 5 or 6 yrs. old, it's the same with German Shepherds. Up to two yrs. old, we consider them either young adults but they still have the pup-like tendencies. Those range from obnoxious behaviors if there is little to no training. We all know what happens with dogs who've had little guidance. Everyone loves a well trained and well behaved dog, but they don't come that way! Proper training and guidance yields a dog who you desire to be around and with. Shay is like dozens and dozens of dogs we've rescued. This doesn't deter us in any way, we see it often and wonder why folks don't see the need to work diligently in the training of their dog. While no dog is perfect, it's not the dogs fault and is so easily fixable.
Shay has been with small children but due to her excitability with her strong need for attention she will barge her way thru to her human to get that regardless of the little ones. With that said, she's very nice and good to children. We will be testing and videoing her and uploading this soon.
Shay has said to have been with dogs and cats but our initial cat testing showed she was not cat friendly. She is a lovely gal who is looking for her special family who will work to fine tune her obedience and training. Shay is gorgeous and not difficult to handle by any means.
Shay would likely do better with older children that are dog experienced age 7 and up.

If you would like to make Shay a special part of your family please apply with the rescue.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shay, a Greeneville 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 Greeneville, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Greeneville.

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