Major's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Major's Story...
Major is a stunning German Shepherd who is only about 3 and a half years old.

When this beautiful young dog was just a baby, his mother doggie stepped on him and caused some neurological damage to his spine. He walks with a distinct wobble because his back legs never developed quite enough strength. He is otherwise perfectly healthy – he does NOT have hip dysplasia – it is a spine issue that does not seem to cause him any pain.

I am posting him as “special needs,” but he really doesn’t have any special needs or require special care – he is just special!

I call him “Major” because his walking style looks like he is marching in a parade – it is both a heart-warming and very cute gait that only adds to his grandeur!

Major is fine with other dogs and with cats – he is affectionate and loving – oh, did I say absolutely gorgeous?

Major could probably benefit from swimming—I think that might strengthen his back legs and spine, but he is also fine the way he is. Sometimes he falls down, but his good nature and tenacity make him get right up from his fall and start walking all over again.

I call him my “wounded warrior” and I think he would make a fabulous companion with someone with his or her own slight “other abilities” because both Major and his human would be special!

I really love this boy – he is sweet and loving and so deserving of a great home.

Major weighs only about 40 pounds – he has a slight build and will not get any bigger.

Tiny is also a gem with children – he isn’t nervous or anxious, so even little children do not faze him.

Major loves to ride in the car and will jump right in if he thinks he can go along with you!

He is a perfect ”comin’ with dog,” so if you are looking for a great medium-sized who can travel with you, Major would be perfect.

Major is neutered and up to date on neuter and all of his shots, including rabies. As I mentioned, other than his unusual wobbly walk, he is perfectly healthy and normal.

Major is not a barker or a chewer, and never, ever wanders off, even though he is free to walk the yard. .

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Major, a Poway 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 Poway, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Poway.

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