My name is River! I’m a 3 month old, black and tan boy GSD puppy.

I’m learning lots at my foster home like going potty outside, playing with other dogs and how to accept being crated.

I love to use my nose and am quite attentive to my name. I am also a quick learner, will pay close attention to you and be so much fun to teach.

I truly relish being with my people and will wake up from sleep to follow if they leave the room.

Something you should know about me is that like many GSD puppies my age, I like to use my shark teeth to bite anything and everything so my new family should understand how to manage this.

I’ll also need an adopter who has experience with us working breed puppies and someone who is around a lot to teach me the things that all good dogs should know.

My foster mom says that I am a curious problem solver. I also like to play tug and ball.

If you’re up for the puppy challenge and would like to meet me, I’ll be waiting with my foster family in Walnut Creek.


To adopt this puppy, you must have working dog puppy experience as an adult. Puppies this young cannot be left for more than 4 hours at a time.
