Good thing you posted it here before it was flagged.

9 mos. old black German shepherd (Naperville/ Aurora)

Date: 2012-12-25, 8:32PM CST
wpfbq-3500994275@comm.craigslist.org[?] Looking for a good home for Shadow, full blood All black German Shepherd. He is neutered with all of his shots/ vaccines current. He is also microchipped and has completed puppy training classes. He is energetic, lively and very obedient. He is also crate trained. He absolutely loves to go on walks, play ball/ fetch, play with other dogs and go swimming. He shows no food aggression, listens to commands and enjoys challenges. We have been his only owners since he was 8 weeks old straight from the breeder in Texas. He has had some lameness in his legs (panosteitis) that have been on/ off since he was about 6 mos old, and isn't expected to go away until his bones stop growing. Very common in shepherds. Crate resting for a week is all it takes. We have files/ medical records for everything. We will continue to pay for his puppy insurance through Banfield Vet until he is 1 yr old.

He recently bit my husband's hands which is the reason we cannot keep him. The bite was more of a fearful reaction and in no way was it aggressive or dominate behavior based. My husband has just never liked the dog ( no specific reason) which has caused Shadow to be fearful of him. Shadow is great with our 3 kids ages 8, 4 and 6 mos and views me as pack leader -100% obedient and loyal. I have had many dogs before but this was my husbands first time with a dog - and taking on a powerful breed like the shepherd- is not working out. It is in everyone's best interest to find Shadow a loving and committed new home.

I am looking for a great new owners for my beloved pet. Preferably seasoned dog owners of strong breeds.
Serious inquiries only.

Please call or reply by email for more info : (630) 301-0457.

A fear aggressive dog should not be in a home with children. Unless the husband was beating him, the dog shouldn't have bit. The fact that the dog will bite when it's scared means it is NOT a safe dog to have living with children, regardless of it being fearful of the husband.

Won't be the popular opinion, but it's reality and I'm glad she is trying to find the dog a new home.
