Coming soon!

Hi! I’m Dodger! I’m a 3 year old GSD with classic black and tan good looks. I’m a healthy, fit boy and weigh about 80 pounds.

I was rescued from the freeway by good Samaritans. They looked and looked for my family but no one came forward to claim me. Now my new friends at BAGSR are helping me find a new home.

I am very affectionate and super affiliative. I love my people and people are my favorite pastime. I will make a terrific companion and would enjoy dog hobbies where I can “work” for my humans-maybe something like obedience work, agility….or other dogs sports. I also ride nicely in the car.

I would love an active family. I have a great time when my foster mom takes me trail running and while I haven’t had much training yet, I’m really good about staying with her.

My foster family has been spending time teaching me the basics. I am making good progress and will need an adopter who will continue my training as it seems no one in my past taught me the fundamentals. I definitely need leash work too.

I’m a smart, strong boy so It would be best if my adopter has experience working with dogs like me and will be committed to my continued learning - I have so much potential! I am a good listener and am a really good student.

I am patient with kids and just love them. There are young kids at my foster home and I do great with them. I am a big strong boy though so my friends recommend a new home without small kids or with dog savvy, respectful kids.

I really don’t like to be left out if the rest of the family is doing something. If I have to though, I will chill out and wait. I am good in the house if left alone and I have very nice house manners.

I allow all over handling but was a bit nervous at the dog doc.

I have a keen prey drive and will chase! And…umm….I’m fast and will catch too! No chickens for me please.

I may be able to live with a dog savvy cat. There is one where I’m staying and I don’t chase her.

I get along with other dogs and currently live with a dobie mix and another GSD. I really enjoy hanging out and playing with them. I may be bossy with other dogs if they allow it; but if another dog takes charge I’m ok with that. Of course, proper dog introductions are a must.

I’m quite in tune with my surroundings and in true GSD form, I will alarm bark if someone comes to my property.

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