Hi! I’m Atlas. I’m a 3 year old, strong, 70 pound, black and tan, boy GSD.

I am looking for a family who can spend time with me - taking me for walks and including me in activities. I love to stay busy so a dog sibling to play with would be fun too. I currently live with another big dog and a small dog and love to play with them. I’m also fine when meeting new dogs out and about. Guess what else?? I currently live with 3 cats and am just fine with them. I like to hunt for rodents though - haha. Maybe we could try barn hunting!

I am super friendly with everyone. I am still young so can get a little wound up around kids, but I do love them. In fact, mostly I will just try to steal kisses. I am quite social and meeting new friends makes me so happy.

I am good in the house, but sometimes will pick up papers, fabric and other stuff that doesn't belong to me if it's left about.

I’ll need some structured training and I do still pull on leash; I'll definitely get better with practice though. Lots of walks will do me good and I’m sure dog school would be great fun.

I require special food so that my food doesn’t upset my stomach. Also, routine radiographs before my neuter show hip dysplasia; but I am completely asymptomatic.

I really like to play with balls especially the tough indestructible ones.

Something you should know about me is that my new friends at BAGSR say that I am a gem. I hope you’ll think so too. This is a courtesy post and I’ll be waiting with my family in Pleasant Hill.
