Austina's Story...
Meet Austina – We found this little girl in December 2012 living outside Stephen F. Austin High School in Greater East End Houston. Sadly, this area is known for many stray and homeless animals. We are not sure how long she’d been living there or how she ended up at the school; our thinking is she was dumped or abandoned.

When taken to the vet, Austina was in fairly good health considering she has been living outside in the elements. She was treated for a minor ear infection, received all of her vaccinations and has been spayed.

Austina loves other dogs and is a super sweetheart. She is a midsize dog under 40 lbs., 7 to 9 months old, a German Shepherd mix. She walks great on a leash and is adapting to a foster home very nicely. Austina is still in need of a forever home. Can you please consider giving this cutie pie a home?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Austina, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Houston.

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