This is a courtesy post for Marin Humane who has several GSDs and other animals available for adoption.

If you're looking for a young, active dog who loves to play ball, then take some time to meet Mickey. This handsome young Shepherd mix with the big stand-up ears has loads of potential. In the right home he can become a terrific companion who will want to be a big part of your life.

Mickey will probably mature into a dog who's about 80 pounds, so you'll also need the space for this boy. He's very smart and trainable, and he'll benefit from a dog-savvy guardian who can help him learn how to behave in the world. Mickey gets very excitable, and when he's excited he barks - at other dogs, at people, at the world in general. He really wants to meet other dogs, but his vocalizing and leash pulling can be intimidating. If given the opportunity to meet dogs in a calm, neutral setting, Mickey can tone down his excitement and actually play quite nicely.

German Shepherds often have issues with being left alone, and Mickey is no exception. He will need to be with people who are around most of the time. If you can give give him plenty of ball and toy play, along with vigorous walks, training exercises, and food puzzles, he will tire out and probably learn to relax and be by himself for a bit.

To help Mickey develop a bond with you, we recommend that he receive most of his calories via hand feeding and training. That feeding program, along with interactive toy play, will make you the best-ever human in his eyes. Mickey has it in him to become a wonderful dog; with your help he can mature into an awesome companion.
