I’m Edison! I’m a gentle, happy GSD and am about 7 years old. I have a super cool multi-colored coat and a tallish physique weighing in at a fit 73 pounds.

I’m a curious and silly boy. I love to play especially with balls of all kinds. At the end of the day, I enjoy snuggling up on the couch with my people-well really it’s more of a plop that I do when I’m getting comfortable and/or would like some pets. I’m quite affectionate.

I can hold down the fort if you have to go to work; play time before you leave and when you get home would be great though. 

I have a calm demeanor and am very friendly. My foster families have had lots of animals-horses, goats, chickens, tortoises, dogs. I tried to chase some chickens once but when I learned that was not acceptable behavior, I stopped. I am a very good listener and want to please. Also, I may be cat workable. I did live peacefully with two cats but then at my next foster home the resident cat didn’t like me… I didn’t like him back. If you have a cat, a slow and patient introduction may be all it takes for us all to live in harmony. Even though I get along just fine with other dogs, I really prefer my people.

I have my basics down. I am good on leash and I’ll make a beautiful walking partner. I still get a bit amped up when I see another dog when I'm out for a leash walk but I correct easily. I’ll need a family who will continue to teach me things and help me practice my new skills. Dog school would be great for me too; I’m sure I would love it! I’m a definite foodie and will do anything for a treat.

I have very nice house manners although I have been known to swipe food off the counter. But if you set the rules for me, I’ll abide by them. Can’t blame a guy for tryin!

I am polite in the car and enjoy the ride so would be a terrific companion for road trips and errands.

Something you should know about me is that I will most certainly bond quickly and closely with my new family. Even though I am a very good boy, like most of us GSDs, I’ll need a strong leader to set the rules and boundaries in my new home.

I hope you’d like to meet me! I’ll be waiting with my foster mom in Oakland.
