Akita's Story...

Hi, I am Akita, a German Shepherd. I've had my heart broken by my first serious relationship. The people who claimed they loved me didn't take care of me and now I am trying to find someone I can trust again. I would love nothing more to share my life with a like minded person. I love to go for long walks, hike, I'm an outdoorsy girl and love to do fun stuff like that, I love to watch old movies, eat popcorn and snuggle by a warm winter fire.
They say Diamonds are a girls best friend but I say a German Shepherd can be your best friend. If you would like to meet and become fast friends please submit an application with IDGSR, they'll tell you more about me. luv, Akita.

Akita is a approx. 2- yr. old female GS who is great with other dogs and kids, not cat tested yet. Information will be updated as she is further evaluated.
She has a sweet disposition, is easy to handle, loving, engaging and will be a blessing to any family.

If you would like to add this beautiful girl to your family, please file an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Akita, 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.
