My story

Adoption fee on this dog is $300.

Randy is a large 4 year old white shepherd with one floppy ear. He came to us from a local shelter so nothing is known about his background. He loves to meet new people and prefers to spend his time inside.

Randy has pretty good house manners and is generally eager to please people. He is housebroken with the use of a dog door and sleeps nicely in a crate at night. When asked to sit he prefers to sit right next to you and leans in for extra attention.

Randy currently lives with an older female shepherd and enjoys her company. He often initiates play inside, but when she runs outside to go play he hasn't quite figured out he is supposed to follow. If she doesn't want to play he nicely finds a place inside to settle down. Randy would likely spend much more time playing with other dogs if he had a more enthusiastic playmate.

Randy is learning how to walk on leash, often does best when not asked to walk at a tight heel, and he seems to walk best with an extra 6-12 inches of leash. He gets a little nervous when big or loud cars go by but he is learning to trust that he is safe walking side by side with his human. If Randy gets a little distracted or overexcited during walks, a quick correction and structure helps settle him back down and continue on. Randy enjoys meeting other happy dogs of all sizes when out for walks.

He has not been tested around cats or other small critters.

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.

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

Randy, 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.
