Other German Shepherds include Lazier, a three-year and four-month-old male, and Jessica, a three-year and four-month-old female, both starting at 2,500 baht.

Additionally, all dogs have been neutered and vaccinated against rabies and a combination of five other diseases.

The auction promises a chance for the public to bring home a well-trained companion while ensuring that these dogs find new homes where they can thrive, reported KhaoSod.
