Derby's Story...
I don’t know if I am ready for the big races yet. I still have a lot to learn and am lacking the self esteem needed to push me to the front line…I really need a coach that is going to give me the confidence to go out there and win the big one! I am still young, a puppy really, and you could say I am still in the Pre-Am competition circuit. I need someone to show me all the awesome training there is to be had out there drag-strip of life. I know that with some training, time, love, and attention I could be a World Class contender. I am learning crate training here and making really good progress. I get along great with the other dogs here at the shelter, all this doggy playtime is really helping me come out of my shell! The more love and playtime I can get the better, so if you have respectful & gentle kids I would love to meet them. Everyone is getting in to position at the starting line, will you help me make a winner of love? 7 months old-40lbs. My adoption fee is $220 and includes; neuter, microchip, reduced cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Derby, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Portland.

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