Trooper's Story...

Trooper is a 1-2 year old black and tan male. He is a big boy, weighing about 75 pounds. He'll probably top out at 80-85 pounds at maturity. GSRCA got Trooper from the Monroeville shelter April 25, 2008; he was there as a stray and not claimed by anyone. Unfortunately, Trooper was also heartworm positive. GSRCA had him treated for heartworms, neutered, etc and aside from needing to gain just a few more pounds, is the picture of health!

"Super Trooper" is a very happy shepherd! He likes people and other dogs! He's not been around cats but he probably would learn to accept them as long as they leave some room for him on the sofa. He loves being in his foster home and is learning manners quickly. While still young and energetic, he pays close attention to what is expected of him and strives to please. When Trooper meets a new person, he greets them by giving their hand a lick. His form of a doggie handshake, maybe? At any rate, Trooper is sure to provide some very lucky adopter with lots of fun, unconditional love and security.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Trooper, 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.
