Lonely GSD in the shelter

You can help us pay for one month of food for a rescued German Shepherd.



Gender: Male

Age: 8.4 months

Level: 2.5 (View level descriptions)

Status: Ready for Adoption

Garin was part of a litter of 3 pups dropped off at the Oakland Animal Services by their owner.  He is a big boy for only being about six months and will need consistent training to keep his curious mind busy.  He is super sweet and loves affection.  Garin can be like a typical teenager and be defiant and in the next breath go do everything you wanted.

When we first met him he was growling and shut down in his kennel he was afraid being there all by himself.  We brought his sister over to see him and he did a 180, he came right to the kennel door and was wagging his tail and giving kisses.  We brought him out to the yard and he was the typical happy go lucky puppy.  We decided to bring him into the rescue, knowing with time, love and training he will be an awesome dog.

So far he is crate trained and other than some excitement pee, he is potty trained.  Garin is ready and waiting for his new home.  If you are looking for a large dog, he will most likely be that. His ears are tyring to rise too.

Adoption Fee includes spay or neuter, vaccinations including rabies, worming, microchip, and a collar.
