Rocco's Story...
Rocco is a stunningly beautiful boy with a heart of gold. Photos do not do him justice, he's a genuine head turner - and yes, his amazing long coat and beautiful, wagging tail have stolen the show for everyone who met him :)

Poor guy had spent most of his adult life tied outside to a tree (with food thrown at him and barely a bowl of water) prior to being taken to a high-kill shelter in Southern Ohio, where he spent the next few months of his life... but you would not even guess his rough go in life based on his stellar personality. So willing to love and trust humans!

Ready at any moment to roll on his back for belly rubs, he is a gentle soul who loves to be petted and... hugged. And guess what, he will hug you back! (He might think he's a lap dog, and we did not dare tell him otherwise.)

He was a little short on manners when he came to us, but he is a very quick learner - already sitting politely for treats, and offering a beautiful down, though only for a few seconds. After which he disarmingly rolls on his back :)

Rocco is around two years old, house trained, crate trained, neutered and up to date with shots.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocco, a Painesville German Shepherd Dog/Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Collie for sale in Painesville, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Collie dog from a breeder in Painesville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Painesville 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 Painesville 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/Collie breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Painesville paves the way for another one to be saved.
