My story

Adoption fee on this dog is $300.

Moxie is a cute red and black 3 year old, petite female weighing about 60 lbs. She came from a local shelter as a stray, so we have no history about her.

She has a very sweet temperament and friendly to all including younger kids. Very affectionate and often lays her head on your lap to be petted. Follows her human everywhere and although did not do well left in a crate without anyone home, she has been fine in the house uncrated and is proven she is housebroken. She sleeps through the night on a dog bed with no issues. She knows basic commands like, sit, stay, no and down and is a very quick learner.

Moxie is in a foster home with a nine year old male Shepherd and does fine, but can be a bit possessive over toys. She doesn't care for the crate and tries endlessly to break out. Most experiences seem to be new to her and she can be a little skittish until she is reassured. She does ok on a leash but needs work, she is very strong. She was afraid of passing cars at first but after two weeks and walking several times everyday, she hardly notices them anymore, unless they are particularly loud. She rides fine in the car but doesn't care for it much. She usually lays behind the driver seat on the floor while the car is moving and pokes her head up when it stops. The one time she road with the other dog, she was more relaxed and curious as to why he had his head out the window and she tried it a couple times as well.

Moxie would do best in a home with another confident male dog. Continued socialization and formal training will also benefit this sweet girl.

Cats and small critters unknown.

This dog is a Level 2. 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.

Why adoption is a great option

Moxie, 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.
