Atlas is our adoptable July 2019 Dog of the Month! This male German shepherd is about seven years old and in need of a fur-ever home. He knows basic commands and is always a good and calm boy on his walks! He waits patiently for treats and would love to be a part of your family.
He’s a beautiful boy with a lovely face and is in need of a good home. He’s also a volunteer favorite, which is always a good sign! He needs a home without small children as he is a big boy. He also would prefer to be an only dog–but trust us when we say, he’s all the dog you’ll need!
If you’re interested in adopting Atlas, he is available for adoption through our DGP Cares charitable partner, the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County (GSROC). Please click here to be taken directly to his profile for more details about Atlas and how you can adopt this lovable pooch.
Adopting a dog who needs a home is a great alternative to buying a puppy from a shop, and much cheaper as well! Many dogs from breeders or pet shops have health issues. If you can’t adopt a dog, fostering a pooch temporarily is another good option to buying.
