My story

Hi! My name is Arrow. I'm a 2 year old German Shepherd mix. I weigh about 60 pounds. 

I'm obedient and loyal to my people and love to cuddle with them on the couch. I'm super friendly, playful, and affectionate. I'm also house trained and crate trained (mommy and daddy crate me while they're not home).  I'm quite versatile - I can be a couch potato or go on a run with you! I loooove treats and need to be on a chicken-free diet. 

I love kids but do get excited around them and may accidentally knock them over, so older kids are preferred in the home. I'm such a good boy in daycare and love to play with other dogs! I've lived with a smaller female dog and we got along great. I do have a high prey drive with cats, squirrels, deer, and other small animals. I've never lived with cats. 

I have been with my current family about a year and a half but my adoptive family is seeking a new home for me because of leash reactivity to other dogs. I just get so excited to see other dogs on leash and I need an owner that can help me manage my excitement. Ideally, I'd be in a home with a fenced yard or a with an owner/family that has experience with leash reactivity - my reactivity is 100% trainable! I'm great in daycare, so this excitement is limited to the leash.

I'm a good boy who wants all the love and cuddles humans can offer! 

Arrow is neutered, microchipped, and fully vaccinated. He is not a LOVEPAWS dog but LOVEPAWS will facilitate Arrow's adoption between his owners and an approved adopter.

Why adoption is a great option

Arrow - Courtesy Post, a Rockville Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Staffordshire Bull Terrier for sale in Rockville, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Rockville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rockville 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 Rockville 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Staffordshire Bull Terrier breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Staffordshire Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rockville paves the way for another one to be saved.
