I think we already have him placed. But, OMG! You have no idea how much self control I have had to exert!

That's a handsome dog! Not sure whether to congratulate you on your will power, or feel sorry for you that it held up LOL! It's probably for the best though...darn it!

This dog is available at my local animal shelter. I put the word out and it looks like there is interest through our state group. I always prefer to see GSDs go to breed knowledgeable homes when they come in as strays and there is zero information to go on. Less chance they bounce back into the shelter (or end up on Craigslist) when the adopter knows what they are getting into.



Now, having said that...this dog really "speaks" to me. If I had the time I would be the one to name him (Owen, in case anyone is interested) and train him (in agility, again in case anyone is interested). But I have zero free time. Between working 60+ hours a week (I teach fourth grade) and being heavily involved with my horses, I have no free time at this point. I can't even foster.

Owner was located and they have declined to claim him. At least there is a little history now. He said to be good with children (although it is always a good idea to monitor and ALWAYS supervise, regardless). Good with household cats, but will chase outside cats and other small animals.



His behavior with dogs has been indifferent at the shelter, but he may be dog selective.

It's sad that the owner refused to claim him. I hope he finds a wonderful home.
It is sad, but at the same time, imagine the treatment he got at home if the owners just decided to let him go knowing where he was. I can’t imagine him being treated all that well (thinking neglect, not abuse) at home if the owners were willing to let him stay at the pound. He’ll probably end up with a much better home than what he was in.

Any update on this guy?

Still there. I really wish I could do more for him, but I just don't have the time. There is still the potential of a home in Utah, so we'll see. I can at least get him through the first leg of transport if the Utah home comes through.
