Hi! I’m Bruce. I’m a 3 year old Dutch Shepherd/GSD mix. I am a healthy and fit 80 pounds.

I would thrive in an active home and definitely need someone to keep me busy. I know obedience commands but get so wound up that it’s sometimes hard for me to listen and focus. Regular appropriate exercise to drain excess energy will help with that though. I would love to go to dog school because I am a true working dog and like to do stuff like that. Consistent mental exercise throughout the day would be awesome. We working dogs really don’t like just hanging around waiting for our families to get home from work or school unless we can have fun stuff to do with you both before and after you leave for the day. I would actually probably love to participate in some sort of dog sport or nose work. Sound fun?? I like treats and am food motivated for training.

I am a confident boy and I do like other dogs. But your help and guidance meeting other dogs using calm energy would be great.

I need some practice on leash too but would love to work on that with my new family.

I really like kids and I currently live with Jazmyn-my dog sibling. She’s a bit bossy but that doesn’t really bother me.

I am a little anxious in the car and with regular car rides I’m sure I’ll learn to love that breeze in my face!

I do fine in a crate too but am also fine if left home alone as long as I have my own toys.

To be the best that I can be, I’ll need a family with working dog experience. I understand that I am not the perfect match for everyone; but my new friends say that I am a smart boy and eager to learn. With the right amount of exercise and activity, they say I will make an awesome family dog. I hope you’d like to meet me!

This is a courtesy post and I’ll be waiting with my family in San Jose.
