Zane's Story...

We are sad to say we have another cruelty and neglect case who is now safe with the rescue. Zane's previous owners were not feeding him nor providing basic needs for him, he is 30-35lbs. underweight. He has a body score of about a 2 and is getting the much needed nutrition and supplements to build him up and get him healthy again. He is so hungry all the time and we have to limit him so he does not make himself sick from overeating. He is on medical hold while we help him gain this much needed weight.
Zane is a darling boy, so sweet and loving. He gets along with other dogs and children.He seeks to be with you and is easy to handle.
Zane is approx. 3 yrs. old, he came into the rescue in terrible condition. He has been bathed and smells so so much better.
Zane will be a blessing to any family and we will help Zane to have a 'real' family who will love him and appreciate him and give him the life he deserves.

If you would like to make Zane a part of your life, please apply with this rescue.
Updates will be posted regularly as he progresses.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zane, 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.
