If you're looking for a sweet German Shepherd
who will love you forever,
COLBY may be your ideal family member!
Colby was owner-surrendered "in the field" to Animal Control, as a means of helping his owner avoid animal cruelty charges. Colby was seized, along with 5 pit-bulls from a location that appeared to be involved in dog fighting. All of the dogs were secured by heavy chains around their necks, as well as heavy-duty springs, which prevented them from reaching each other. Their only shelter was barrels cut in half and turned upside down in the mud. When Colby came to MOGS he was starved to the bone and at 61lbs he was drastically underweight.
TEMPERAMENT / BEHAVIOR
Colby is a love bug. If he knows you he will want your attention and he will bug you until you give it to him. He wants to be a lap dog as well. Colby is a happy boy, he just wants to enjoy his home and all the thing he loves, food, his ball, his Buffalo horns, and hanging with his people. Because he is tentative with new people and dogs, he would not be a good candidate for dog parks, doggy day care, Home Depot visits or camping.
He is house trained; crate trained and does not chew on anything he is not supposed to. Colby will need a person that is a strong experienced leader.
Colby can be an only dog. He does not play with the resident dogs in his foster home. His idea of playing with them is for all of them to run at full speed up to the back door to come back inside. He tries to avoid confrontation with other dogs, he will get up and walk away. He will not back down if he gets involved but it is only a barking match and he is easily called off. He does take a slow intro to other dogs but he currently lives with a 14-year-old, 8-year-old and 8-month-old, all GSDs. Colby needs a home with no cats, but he has been in a household with a small dog and did very well.
He warms up to women quickly, he takes longer to warm up to men. We do not recommend him going into a household with small children or very hyper dogs as he is easily annoyed. People that get to know him absolutely love him and he remembers the people he meets and greets them with a smile.
Up-to-date on all vaccines, has a current rabies tag, is neutered/spayed and has been microchipped. Has no known medical issues.
