Murphy's Story...
Hi, My name is Murphy,
And I am a 7 month old black and silver German Shepherd (GSD). When I came into the group, I was not in good condition. I had mange and was very underweight. However, my guardian angels at GHGSDR quickly got me to a hospital where my skin condition was treated, I was given all my shots, neutered!!!! and provided lots of food and love. I am now thrilled to announce that I am ready to find my forever home. Currently I am in my foster home living with 2 female GSDs and 3 cats. YES! I’M GOOD WITH CATS! Actually I would love to run after them but my foster mom says “no” and that’s the end of it. I really just wanted to play with them anyway. I get along well with my GSD siblings and I know I would get a long great with children. I’m a very sweet boy without a mean bone in my body. Of course as I grow larger, I will be a little more boisterous so you will always need to be mindful of small children around me.

I think I was mistreated or as a minimum neglected when I was younger because I can be kind of shy and timid at first. However, I really want to be happy and affectionate and with a little bit of confidence building I turn into a love bug. I tend to be the kind of GSD that focuses on my human. Where my human is, that’s where I want to be. For instance, last night I was steadfast in the kitchen helping my foster mom make cookies and at night I slept right at the foot of her bed.

If you are looking for that classic GSD, who is sweet as can be, to grow into your loyal, life-long companion, come visit me. I know you will be glad you did.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Houston German Shepherd Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Houston, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog puppy from a breeder in Houston.

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