Location: Kansas City area in boarding Age: approx. 2 years (as of 7.7.09) Temperament: Big sweet boy!!
We rescued Theo from a local high kill shelter after he was picked up running stray on the mean streets of the inner city. He is a large bi-color male, weighing 76 pounds at intake, but he should be closer to 90. He also has a bit of fly strike on his ears and his coat is a little rough, but other than that he's great. With a little TLC, he will be absolutely stunning to be sure! Wouldn't you like to be seen walking this gorgeous guy down the street or at the local dog park?!
Theo is very friendly and seems fine with other dogs of his size. We have not tested him with cats or children at this time. We will post updates as we get to know him better.
If you would like to give Theo a forever home, please email us.
Are you sure you're up to having a GSD? They're not for everyone. They take a lot of time, effort, training. They shed year round. They're big. They scare lots of people. They "mouth" and herd. They're usually strong-willed and stubborn. You have to have references and a home visit. If you're not willing or able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time or ours applying.
Will the dog be an inside family pet?We do not adopt to outdoor-only homes. All dogs must be indoor dogs.
Do you leave your dog outdoors when you're not home? We do not adopt to homes that leave their animals outside when they're gone. You must put your dogs indoors when you're gone. A 3 yr old adopted MOGS dog died when the owners went to run errands, left her outdoors, the gate was somehow opened, and she was hit by a car. Tragic and 100% preventable. Even privacy fences get broken into. Gates are opened. Thieves steal dogs. Never leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
What's your planfor unexpected events and major changes?New baby? Divorce? Moving? How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up?
Will you make a lifetime commitment?It's your responsibility to keep your dog safe, loved and cared for FOR LIFE.
Do you understand we expect you to keep that lifetime commitment? It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment?Do not apply.
