REX-Prison Grad's Story...
Look at the photo of Rex and you will fall in love instantly. He is a one year old Shepherd mix. Rex was surrendered to the shelter because his family moved and couldn't take him with them. Rex was recently trained at the Grafton Correctional Facility and adopted. His family brought him back to the shelter because he was too active for them and he was crated for sometimes 8-10 hours a day. Rex knows his basic commands and obedience. He will thrive with a dog savvy owner. He is house trained. This fellow is a great car rider and is fine with other dogs and cats. He has a high energy level and can jump the fence at Friendship. Rex would love to be a member of an active family or someone's running partner. He needs lots of exercise and a fenced in yard wouldn't hurt either. He loves people young and old and he would love to finally find his forever home.

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

REX-Prison Grad, 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.
