Special Needs German Shepherd Puppy


Accepting Applications January 21st – January 27th

Roo is a 4 month old, tri-pawd German Shepherd puppy with a birth defect in his remaining front leg. The Sacramento SPCA will partner with his adopter for the next 12 months, including supplying wheelchair and boot upgrades as he grows and potential prosthetic when he is fully grown. We will also include a initial behavior consultation with a behavior specialist. 

Due to his special needs, Roo will require a very special home committed to helping him become the best dog he can be! 

Some special considerations to keep in mind:

  • Minimal stairs in home
  • Padding/carpeting throughout the house preferred
  • No cats in home
  • Ability to lift up to 60lbs if needed
