Diamond's Story...
Sometimes we’re asked to help a dog who is not 100% German Shepherd; and we try, first, to do some networking for the dog. When the need is immediate, though, we bring the dog into GSRNE if we have an appropriate foster home. This was the case when we learned about Diamond, who is a GSD/Husky and a sweet 9-year-old girl. Her owner died, and the owner’s daughter was trying to find homes for his five dogs. The younger ones were chosen, the daughter kept one older dog who has cancer, and Diamond was still waiting as the date for the sale of the house arrived.

Fortunately, we have a foster Mom who has a special place in her heart for the older dogs, and she had room in her home for Diamond. She also has a senior male GSD and a dog-savvy cat; Diamond was happy to meet the male GSD but was not too sure about the cat. With close supervision and some lessons in cat manners (administered by the cat), Diamond was doing very well at the end of the first week; so that hurdle was cleared.

She didn’t eat much during that first week and was not tempted by treats or toys; actually, she didn’t seem to know what to do with a toy. Something was bothering her, in addition to missing her pack mates, her owner and her familiar surroundings. She was having “accidents” in the house, so we asked her foster Mom to take her to the vet to be checked for a Urinary Tract Infection. Sure enough, that’s what was making her feel “off” and causing the accidents. Once the medication got that cleared up, Diamond became more active and started eating normally.

She’s a friendly girl, but she’ll bark when someone knocks on the door; she follows the lead of her present pack member, Murray, and greets visitors nicely. She didn’t know how to walk on leash but has learned not to pull and enjoys her walks now. We do think she’ll be happiest living with another dog in the family, and having a cat buddy would be a bonus.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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