Gene's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Gene's Story...
Gene is the most brilliant dog I have ever met. She came into our rescue from the Harbor Shelter in San Pedro where she was scheduled to be euthanized. She was abandoned in a car and no one knows what happened to her owner. I took her to be evaluated by Search & Rescue and she was so smart she made it into the program. She stopped wanting to do the exercises they wanted her to do so I thought it would be best that we pull her from the program and not force her to do it. She is fine with dogs if introduced properly, she chases cats and she in unsure of kids (she has tried to nip one before so she MUST be placed in a house with NO young kids and NO cats). She is a super sweet girl who LOVES to play fetch, loves to run and hike, and loves to do anything active with you. She would love to further her training (she has lifetime guaranteed training through Doggie Do Good in Nipomo) and learn new tricks because she is so willing to work and very ball motivated. Anyone up for a sweet girl who will protect you and be your best friend?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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