Rex is a magnificent, intelligent, 2- to 3-year-old large neutered adult German shepherd that loves attention and will “stick to your side” and give you kisses for as long as you are willing to share yourself with him.

Pet of the Week

He absolutely loves car rides and is very quick to learn new things. He knows basic commands, but will require continued training. He is learning not to pull on his leash. He loves to play and will entertain himself with fearless game of “catch the shepherd’ tail” when he gets bored.

Rex is house-broken and is very quiet in his kennel. He is not a barker and has no destructive behaviors.

He gets along great with other dogs, but has not yet been tested with cats.

His current playmates include both male and female rottweilers and a senior pit bull. He accepts new people and situations with his happy face and is eager to please.

Rex is looking for a German shepherd-savvy active home — a family that enjoys nice hikes in the woods or trips to the lake — and a safe fenced-yard where he can have free time would be perfect.

Arial runners are not suggested as dogs of his caliber are too often stolen when unattended. Because we do not have a history (unclaimed stray), applications from homes with young children less than 10 years old are not recommended.

Rex is current on all vaccines, microchipped and on heartworm preventative.
