My story

Meet Mojo! This stunner is all heart and brains. At 3 years old, Mojo is fully crate trained, house trained and excellent on the leash. He likes to flex those brainiac muscles by learning new commands, perfecting the ones he knows (leash walking, sit, touch, heel) and doing treat puzzles. He's also a wee bit OBSESSED with fetch, so if you're into backyard time, you'll be in good company. Bonus points if you like to break out the water hose or go for a hike near shallow water bodies. Mojo can't think of a better way to cool off than splashing in a stream or sprinkler.

Mojo is a classic GSD "working dog" and does best in a home with routine, enrichment outlets and clear guidance. But don't let that scare you, he's also a goober that LOVES to be loved on. Couch cuddles after an afternoon of fetch? Yes, please! Mojo is good with dogs, not a good fit for cats, does well with older/calmer kiddos, is fully vaccinated, neutered, and heartworm negative.

Why adoption is a great option

Mojo, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog 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.
