My story

Adoption fee on this dog is $300.

Shannon is an adorable black and tan, 9 month old female. She was originally found in a dumpster with three siblings and brought to a local shelter. Given her rough start in life, this girl is very shy. She loves the company of other dogs but she's still getting used to humans. Although timid at times she will come to get treats held in an extended hand about fifty percent of the time.

Shannon is crate trained, but will protest in the morning, when she thinks it’s time to get up. She is working on potty training. She will go potty outside, but has not yet grasped the concept of alerting her humans when she needs to go out and will potty in the house. Continued efforts will be needed in this area.

Shannon is still quite shy around humans, but loves the company of the older male German Shepherd in her foster home. She would do best with another older more confident dog to show her the ropes and help to bring her out of her shell. Regular exercise and obedience training can also help tire her and help bond her to her people.
This dog is a Level 3. Please be sure you understand what a dog of this Level requires. Go to our GCGSR Dogs page for an explanation of the Dog Rating Levels.

For more information and to see when this dog will be attending an Adoption Day, please see our Dogs page on our main website at www.gcgsr.org.

Why adoption is a great option

Shannon, a Sacramento 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 Sacramento, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Sacramento.

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