Candy's Story...
Meet Candy. Candy is a gorgeous 2-year old female German Shepherd that ran out of time at a public animal shelter. She is new to our organization, so we are still getting to know her.
Candy was adopted from the shelter by a senior citizen with a very small dog. For several reasons, this adoption was not likely to succeed. Candy is an enthusiastic dog that has never been properly socialized around other dogs. While she absolutely adores people, she currently gets very agitated around other dogs. This behavior is compounded by her lack of obedience training. As a result, Candy was returned to the shelter where she quickly ran out of viable options.
We have recently started her obedience training and will soon teach her how to behave with restraint around other dogs. We do not anticipate that she will need much work around people – she loves them and they love her. While we do not consider her to be obedience trained, we suspect that she will be snatched up by her charm and good looks prior to completing our program.
If you live in a home without another dog or have previous experience obedience training a German Shepherd, Candy would likely fit nicely into your home as-is. However, if you don’t fit into this category, check back with us shortly to witness her transformation.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Candy, 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.
