Tess's Story...
Tess is a 2 yr old girl that is looking for someone to be her one and only. Tess is good with dogs her own size but not little ones. We do think she will be a better dog for her handler if she is the only 4 legged pet in the home but can live with another k-9 friend as her foster home has 3 other dogs. Tess is looking for a jogging companion; she is a great running buddy. She stays focused on the mission and is not distracted by other joggers, dogs, strollers or any other critters that may be around. She is highly food motivated and this will be the best way to teach her basic obedience and manners. She is crate trained and has been house trained. We believe that Tess was an outdoor dog and was not in a home before coming into rescue. We also feel that nobody spent very much time with her which explains why she has a difficult time with concentration. If Tess becomes your new best friend, you will find in her loyalty, dedication and the willingness to please. We recommend that once adopted you start training classes with her to help her with bonding and listening to you. We do not recommend a home with kitties or small prey animals like tiny dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tess, a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Denver.

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