Astro is a sable 2 - 3 year old male German Shepherd with helicopter ears. He weighs about 90 lbs. He was returned by his owners when they could no longer give him the attention and exercise he needs, after the birth of their baby.
He was living with a Female GSD in his previous home, and got along well with her. He is slow to accept other dogs, and care will need to be taken when introducing him to other dogs, as he is quite dominant. He is currently being fostered in a home with a female GSD and 2 adult male GSDs. He prefers the company of the female GSD.
He is crate trained, house-broken, and is well trained in German commands. We are working to teach him his commands in English. He walks very nicely on a leash, and corrects easily. He has some ball drive and will play fetch and toss until his tongue is hanging out. Astro loves the water and swimming, and in his previous home he enjoyed the snow.
More to come on this beautiful guy as we get to know him a little better.
