He also is used to Earthborn Holistic food brand which is a grain free food and it does cost more than the typical brands. If you wanted to switch he would need to be fed grain free and transition over slowly.
Here is a summary from his current owner...
Rex needs an owner that is experienced with the German Shepherd breed and is willing to train him in the areas where he tends to have poor manners. He also needs lots of exercise! He would probably do well with someone who could run or jog with him daily or perhaps do agility training with him. I think, with someone who knows how to train him and is willing to put in the time with him, he'd learn quickly and be the most terrific dog and companion! I sincerely wish that person could be me, but I can no longer do jogging, running, or agility. He deserves more than just being in the house with me and getting to go outside only in the back yard to play. He does have a few quirks. He's terribly afraid of loud noises like thunder or fireworks. He chases flies outside, but if there is a fly in the house, he is terrified and either refuses to come in or runs and hides in his safe place. He's also very respectful of a water squirt bottle. He will stop what he's doing, tuck tail, lower ears, and sulk away if I just pick up the squirt bottle. I have never actually used it on him.
So, if you think you have the time, energy and dedication to put forth, then please apply. As with all our dogs, we have an application process and home ck that needs to be done before any meet and greets happen.
