Sophie's Story...
Hi! My name is Sophie and I am all black and tan German Shepherd of show line lineage. I am about 2 years old, spayed, HW negative and currently 65lbs--I could use a few more pounds. I was an owner surrender, but I don’t know much more. My foster dad thinks I am awesome, and recently I was evaluated by a 6-time World Seiger trainer who evaluated my temperament as “excellent.” I am good with small dogs, large dogs, and dogs that behave like idiots. However, if you start a fight, I will finish it. I also like to chase squirrels...I am great with all kinds of people. I know how to sit, stay, shake hands, but I can do much more! I love to play tug, and I have very good ball drive. My foster dad indulges my “emergency belly rubs” that I love to get when I lean into him. I have great eye contact and I am learning to “watch” before I am given the command to jump into the car. By the way, I love “rides!” I go everywhere with my foster dad and others in his pack. I would be best suited for a very active home that wants to involve me in their life. I would also be best placed in a home that understands the value and training that a crate brings. Even if you are not experienced, but have in interest in training me to my awesome potential, feel free to inquire--my foster dad can help with getting us started. I am currently in the Northern Virginia area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sophie, a Staunton 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 Staunton, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Staunton.

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