Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Adoption Fee: 125.00. Hi my name is Gabbie and I'm a 10 year old German Shepherd looking for a new home and family. I'm a little unsure of why I'm here at the shelter and would really love to be back in a home as soon as possible. The shelter ladies tell me that I'm here because of some issues between me and another dog at my old home, who was much younger than me. I didn't mean to cause any tension and I hope someone will give me another chance to prove I can be the best doggie friend ever! I'm just a little older and set in my ways....kinda like some hoomans! Maybe you have a spot for a golden girl like me?

More About German Shepherd Dog Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Oh! Miss Letty Lou, what can I tell you about her. Well, she is a happy, bouncy, ball of sweetness. The only thing that moves faster than she does is her tongue. She definitely can't hold her licker! Her love for people is endless, no matter young or old, if you have an open lap to snuggle on, a free hand or two to pet with and a face that needs to be kissed she's your girl. Having a lazy day in bed or watching movies on the couch, she will keep you warm and entertained for sure. This girl has personality that goes on for days! She walks well on a leash and is currently working on basic obedience commands. Her favorite toys are anything squeeky, kongs and bones. She plays ball, and actually brings it back to you....most of the time...ha. She can sometimes get distracted by her brother and sisters who she loves to do zoomies in the yard with. She is potty trained, but gets distracted, so she sometimes needs to be reminded about what we do outside, i.e potty. She is really interested in her feline siblings and wants to play with them, they don't think shes so cute though. She kennels when asked, but would prefer to be with you :) I cannot say enough good things about this lovely girl. We love her here and can't wait for her to meet her forever family. ​Adoption App: http://www.marshmallowfoundation.org/info/adoption
