Parker has been adopted! 04-19-2018
Parker was rescued from a family that got him as a young puppy but did no training or socialization with him. When his rescuer found him, he was basically feral. She found a foster home for Parker with an experienced German Shepherd owner who has been working with him. Parker is learning quickly but his manners and walking on a leash skills need to be fine tuned. He likes other dogs and people. He is a very strong boy with lots of puppy energy but at 67 pounds, that puppy energy may be too much for some.
Parker would fit best with a family that does not have young children but he would be fine with adults and teenagers. He will try to chase cats on his walks so we recommend no cats or very small dogs in the household. He is housebroken and will let you know when he has to go out. Parker is a diamond in the rough but with a little smoothing and shaping, he will shine bright!
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.
