Dylan is available ( Updated 08-20-2017 )

Male German Shepherd Dog about 4-6 months old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs. Not cat friendly.

Dylan is a typical 6 month old puppy. He is a big boy whose DNA test indicated that he is primarily German Shepherd with some Border Collie and possibly a bit of Greyhound and Boxer. He loves to get out and go for walks. He can be a bit fearful of new things but just needs to be introduced to unfamiliar people and things slowly. He does very well in his training class. He is on lesson 4 and learns his commands quickly. He is very treat motivated. He is housebroken and is being crate trained.

Dylan thinks he is an alpha dog at 6 months old. He is in a home with another dog who is an alpha dog and she has put Dylan in his place and he has accepted it. We recommend that Dylan go to a home that has another dog - and one that is alpha - or else he may decide to assert himself and be more difficult to train. He is in a home with cats but still needs some time accepting them. He has some resource guarding issues, but with time and the influence of the other dogs in the home, we hope that will lessen.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
