Nugget's Story...
Nugget is a friendly and outgoing 2-3 year-old Shepherd mix female with a great attitude. She came from the Canine Lifeline Rescue and was a stray before that, so not much is known about her. Nugget loves playing with other dogs and gets very attached to people quickly. Unfortunately, she has been adopted and returned twice because of separation anxiety issues so will need a home with another dog who enjoys playing with her and a family who is home much of the time and knowledgeable on working with this issue. Nugget is house trained and well-behaved with someone is home with her but has accidents and is very nervous when left alone. She weighs about 35 pounds.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nugget, a Elyria 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 Elyria, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Elyria.

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