Currently in Training by K9Express. Will be one fantastic pet! 

This is ONE sharp gentle sweet dog with a huge potential.  Sadly he has heartworm, rescue is treating, and we need a calm home for him to be until he is over them.  He is now with an expert trainer to make this big guy even more amazing that he already is.  Is learning to rest quietly in a crate, walk well on a leash, and learn general commands. Frankly, he doesn't really need training, but it will make him even more desirable! He will be through training in mid December. He then needs a foster to see him through heartworm treatment.

AWHAR will pay the foster to see him through heartworm treatment - all expenses paid for all supplies!  PERFECTLY HOUSE TRAINED!

SHADOW's HISTORY: He is a big handsome sweet male German Shephard (Lab mix). Never met a person that he did not like. He is three years old and 99 pounds.  He is primarily GSD, 95% we think, and we'd say definitely from a European Line based on his large size and strong hips, not slanted. Shadow LOVES attention and especially gently rubbing his head! He has an excellent CALM, collected, and laid back nature, and he is extremely smart and wants to please.  QUICK to learn, even though we think his previous owner was harsh to him. German Shepherd MIXES are the best, LOW KEY CALM and SO SMART!  He lived with small kids who came in the yard, a poodle (now rescued, too) and lots of chickens. He rarely barks.  He is NOT dog reactive.

OUR rescue, AWHAR, finally got him released from former owner.  The former owner bought him as a small puppy from a crummy flea market in Norcross.  Shadow's whole life had been in a fenced backyard 24/7. Shadow has NEVER had a dog house, no bed, no cover ....and he braved the elements during all seasons, the rain, hot weather, cold weather and storms. The flies bit his ears until they bled, and he was rake thin until a kind person starting donating food to him.  DO you have a place in your heart and home for Shadow?

ALL vet care will be provided, BUT he needs a place to go to recoup, get the treatment, and time to get a home. 

Thanks to the kind rescue person in the neighborhood who took pity on Shadow, he now has a CHANCE at a wonderful home.  He has tons of good references!!  Shadow wants a fenced yard and a SOFT bed INSIDE. He is fully vetted and just needs a place to go for treatment.
