Name: Six  Breed: Shepherd mix

Approximate Age: 1 year  (DOB 8/29/15)

Approximate Weight: 70 lbs

Lived with: Dogs and kids

Currently Living at: local foster

Special adoption considerations: Six needs an adopter who is willing to work with him on obedience and manners.  He is a smart boy and eager to learn but needs someone to be patient and consistent with him.  He does well with other dogs and has lived in foster with young kids-- and loves them!  Six must go to a home with another dog to help show him the ropes!

Greetings humans, my name is Six. My perfect family will make sure that I get lots of love plus take me to school and out on lots of walks so I can socialize with other dogs and make lots of friends.  After all that, I am looking forward to snuggling up in my very own bed, getting some belly rubs and even maybe a few treats!

I am a shepherd mix, and I have LOTS of puppy energy to burn, so an active family would be great. I also need a family who will provide me with structure and who is willing to work with me on basic manners.  I am a good boy who is very enthusiastic so I need help channeling my energy.  I also love other dogs so I hope I will get to go to the dog park or daycare of get other opportunities to run and play and socialize.  If you have kids that would be super great because they have two of those in my foster home and we have a great time together.  

Foster update: Handsome Six is a loveable goofball who loves to run around and play ball outside but is also happy to crash out on the couch when playtime is over. In spite of his 70 lbs., he would like to sit in your lap, if you will permit it. Six takes a couple of walks a day, but if you are looking for a running partner, Six could keep up with you about as far as you want to go! Six is also quite a clever boy who knows some basic obedience commands like ‘Sit’, ‘Down,’ ‘Wait’ and ‘Settle.’ Six is highly food-motivated and would love to learn any other commands you would like to teach him. Six adores people and dogs alike, especially kids, and ideally would like to live in a home where someone works/stays at home or is retired and is home a lot, because he loves to be with his people so very much. He is well-behaved in the car and would love to be your shotgun rider wherever you are going, especially if you are going someplace that has French fries. He think French fries are excellent.


Six will be an extremely loyal and devoted family companion who wants nothing more than to be with his people and doggy friends. (He never met a stranger. He is still learning that not all new people like to be hugged upon first meeting.) Even those kitty things are okay, if the kitty is not too intimidated by his size and his big puppy paws. Six just celebrated his first birthday and he thinks that a new forever family would make the best birthday gift ever! 

Like most young dogs, Six will need to work on his housetraining. Six will also need to go to obedience school so he can grow into a well-socialized dog! 

The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting and transport from the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Megan D. at!

About Lucky Dog Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a group of highly motivated and highly dedicated volunteers. We spend countless hours making sure that wonderful dogs find loving forever homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!
