Lefty's Story...
Meet Lefty! Lefty is a charming, energy-filled 3-year old neutered male German Shepherd that came to a public animal shelter as a stray. At the shelter, Lefty was an Adoption Counselor favorite, but like so many other wonderful dogs at public animal shelters, he soon ran out of time. The shelter informed us that he was a wonderful dog, but required basic obedience training and socialization, neither of which was available to him given their limited resources. They implored us to consider him as a candidate for our program. We agreed.
Our work with Lefty confirmed the shelter’s determination that he is a great dog that will thrive with obedience training and socialization. Lefty is ready to go!
The shelter has indicated that Lefty appears to have a genetic condition called “carpus valgus” [front feet splayed outwards]. It is more pronounced on one foot than the other [hence his name, Lefty], but it does not slow him down one bit. He is completely unaware of the condition and leads a completely normal life. We think it actually gives him a bit of charm!
Come meet Lefty!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lefty, a Altadena 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 Altadena, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Altadena.

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