Retired K9 needs new home or foster home ASAP!!!

Hello. Trying to find a new or foster home for a retired K9. He is around 10/11 years old, in-tact, 100 lbs, good with other dogs and kids. Due to his training and nature, he'd do best in an experienced home with/without older children. Caution should be used with another male. He does chase cats, typica GSD.

He is currently homeless and living in and out of a kennel.

In the photo, he's on the left side.

Aww, I hope he finds someone! He deserves a good home after his service on the streets. He's a beautiful boy too!

Have you tried contacting the New England German Shepherd rescues? Where is he currently? Safe in a temporary foster home?

He's been juggled around from home to home and kennel to truck. He's depressed. The GSRNE wouldn't be able to place him because he's in-tact and a trained K9. They can not put themselves in a liability situation. He's too old to return to work.

Save-A-Vet thinks they can help, but it'll take a couple of weeks. It would be great to find a temporary home for him.

Hey two questions, Are you still looking for a home for him and is he good around cats? (Minus the chasing)

May I ask...why isn't his handler or the Department placing him in a home?
We would never have let one of our retired K9's be abandoned or fostered out. (Just wondering)

So this dog has given his all, has been willing to sacrifice his life and this is the reward for a job well done? Only wasting his life away while he deserves a soft bed for his probably arthritic bones. What a shame!!!
