Meet Sarge, 3.5 year old male German Shepherd mix.
Sarge is a very large boy. He weights in at 91 pounds and is understandably strong due to his size. Sarge is very vocal. He talked to his handler the whole time he was getting photographed. Sarge did well on his leash when he was inside the adoption center but he got very excited to sniff around the yard and wanted to pull when outside. Sarge is a super handsome dog and will make a great companion for someone that is ready to have a conversationalist K9.
Please do your breed research before applying to adopt Sarge. German Shepherds and GSD mixes are a special breed of dog with special requirements. These dogs were bred to have a job, and without the right activity level/purpose they won't flourish which can lead to issues down the road. These dogs are incredibly smart and need to be challenged both physically and mentally to really be happy. The German Shepherd is known to be vocal when excited and can be a bit mouthy at times, proper training is key in helping your German Shepherd adjust to their new life. German Shepherds are a fun, athletic breed that many have fallen in love with over the years, but please keep their breed needs in mind when considering adding one to your household.
This pet is available for adoption on 7/29/22. If you recognize this animal please contact the adoption center at 509-457-6854.
If you are interested in adopting this pet please fill out an adoption questionnaire at www.yakimahumane.org. A Yakima Humane Society staff member will contact you once your questionnaire has been received.
A Picture says 1000 words...right? While an animal's picture draws interest, the reality is that as a potential adopter most people would like as much information as possible about a pet. The Yakima Humane Society is an open admission shelter. What does this mean? Over 90% of the pets at the adoption center arrive as strays, no history of behavior or medical care is known. Adding a pet to your family is a big responsibility. Please research carefully and remember that adoption is life saving. Adopt Don't Shop.
