Shadow is a 2-year old male GSD.  

He is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped. His general disposition is friendly and outgoing with people and other dogs.  During his evaluation, he met several adults and children and was appropriate and friendly with all of them. He is a well trained dog, and would make a nice addition to an active family. 

On leash, he walks nicely with a prong collar. He heels, sits, and stay on command.  He has a solid recall and runs enthusiastically to his owner when called. He was relaxed when passing other dogs on the leash.  He also goes to the dog park daily and gets along with most everyone there.  

He has completed basic obedience, is house-trained, and has been left home alone a few times without incident. Otherwise, he is used to being crated for short periods (and after receiving exercise)

Shadow's owner needed to move in with family and an allergy is the reason for surrender.

He lives with a 7month old baby and is both protective of the baby and also protective of his food when the baby crawls toward him while eating. So we recommend children over age 5, and feeding him meals instead of free-feeding.

An ideal home for Shadow would include: an active family that can provide him with a daily jog, hike, or romp at the dog park. Another playful female dog and a large yard would also be nice for him. 


Overall, Shadow is a well-socialized, happy, and well-trained dog who would make a nice addition to most homes with an active lifestyle. 

He is living in San Francisco
