Sheffield's Story...
Meet Sheffield - Sheffield is a cute loveable pup, barely a year old. He showed up at a Barrio Dogs’ pet awareness event at Sheffield’s Ice House in Houston’s East End. The ice house owners said he had been hanging around for a few days and was homeless. Sheffield stayed around the entire evening and at the end of the night, we couldn’t leave him behind.
Sheffield loves to bounce around, play hard, enjoys a good game of tug and is always ready for an adventure. He has excellent on-leash manners and will perform sit, stay, come, and down commands most of the time, but hey, he’s still got a bit of puppy attitude in him. He is well-mannered when feeding and will sit when dinner is served. Sheffield will gladly go to his crate when he’s tired or needs a place to chill; he is crate-trained and house-trained.
Sheffield plays very well with dogs of all sizes and is easy-going in a play environment although he would probably be happiest if he’s the only male in the pack. He has a beautiful chestnut-colored shiny coat, weighs approximately 50 pounds and is not quite two feet tall.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sheffield, a Houston Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Houston, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
