Breilla's Story...
Hi there, my name is Breilla. My mother was a German Shepherd and my father was a Rat Terrier! I think I would be called a "designer dog". I weigh 30 pounds and am fully grown.

I was purchased from a "breeder" as a 6 week old puppy and I lived with my family and 2 little girls for 6 months. Sadly, the youngest girl was horribly allergic to me so my family gave me away to a not very nice man. I am now 14 months old and my first mom took me back in and called the ARP. I am now living in a foster home with 6 puppies, 3 Chihuahuas and a Vizsla. I like them all; especially the puppies (check us out playing in the video)! I have been going lots of places and meeting many dogs, kids, and nice people. I am very devoted and stay close to my foster mom. I am house trained and sleep in a crate at night. I would love a family who would take me on adventures. If you would like to know more about me, you can contact the ARP and talk to my foster mom.

****My adoption fee is $325.****

The Animal Rescue Project ( is committed to the best possible veterinary care for the pets it rescues—and it is looking for adopters who will be similarly committed.

All dogs and puppies are given a general check-up when they enter our program. They receive medication to remove any intestinal parasites (worms), fleas, and ticks they may have. Dogs greater than six months of age are checked for heartworm. If heartworm positive, the Animal Rescue Project treats the disease. Dogs and pups receive all age-appropriate vaccinations for distemper, and dogs greater than four months of age are also vaccinated for rabies, in compliance with State of Michigan laws.

Most dogs and older puppies are spayed or neutered before adoption. In the case of puppies not old enough to be safely sterilized, a $25 deposit is required at the time of adoption and is refunded to the adopter with proof of sterilization.

The Animal Rescue Project requires every adopter to establish an active relationship with a veterinarian no later than 10 days after adoption. Adopters will receive a plan for routine veterinary care at the time of adoption and are expected to work with their vet to complete the plan.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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