Trinka's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Trinka's Story...
Trinka is 3.5 years old and roughly 60 pounds. If you are looking for sweet and petite, Trinka might be your girl. Her ideal home would be one that accepts her for who she is and understands her limitations. She is a homebody, loves being a housedog and is quite comfy on the furniture as one can see from her pictures.

Trinka is a submissive type female who does well with other dogs her size or larger. She actually needs the company of other dogs to feel secure. She has a strong prey drive and will chase just about anything that moves fast. During the summer time being squirted with the hosepipe and splashing in her baby pool is her favorite game! She is not suitable for a home with young children (they scare her), cats or small dogs.

Trinka has mild food allergies which causes itchy ears and itchy paws. The food that has worked well to keep this in remission is by Wellness - Simple Food Solutions Venison formula. It's not much more expensive than any other high quality pet food.

Trinka was taken into rescue on Mother's Day 2004 along with ther littermates, Rex and Macy (who have already been adopted). The breeder couldn't "get rid" of all the puppies and called animal control to pick them up. They were 6 weeks old and living under a porch. When they would not come out to the AC officer, he put a snare pole around their little necks and drug them out. Then he took them to an overcrowded shelter and all three put together in a tiny cage. How scary is that? In spite of her start in life, Trinka has begun to overcome some of her insecurities. She's still unsure in new situations, leary of men and children but is adoptable to a special home.We believe that home is out there somewhere.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Trinka, a Pike Road 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 Pike Road, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Pike Road.

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