Little Prince T. Summary:
Sex Age Wt Shots Level Potty Trained
M 11 yrs 40 lbs Current 2 yes
Good with Adults, other dogs, rides in the car
Little Prince walks like a dream on leash. As you can see in the video link below he walks and trots real well and shows allot of agility. He also rides beautifully in the car and settles right down in his crate. Use of a crate is recommended both for his traveling safety and to keep him from moving around in the vehicle while driving. And at only 40-50 lbs Little Prince will not hurt your back if you want to help him into your vehicle. He may be one of the very few "Pocket" German Shepherds you will find.
Little Prince's Foster Mom advised that he was a little nervous after initially arriving (especially with her 2 resident GSDs) but he is starting to get more comfortable and "asking" for attention and petting. Little Prince also seems to get along well with older kids (10+ years old) and would make a wonderful family dog.
She also reports that Little Prince is Potty Trained. He will stand at the door letting you know "its that time again". The best setup is to have a dog door that he can use to self manage his potty breaks. Otherwise he is happy to wait for you to let him out... but if you miss him waiting at the door no one can wait forever so having planned potty break times might be a good insurance plan.
Prince is pictured below doing what he enjoys allot... sleeping. He is a people dog and enjoys sleeping inside the house with his people.
It does appear that may be hearing impaired and may also be visually impaired. He did not respond to my voice or whistle, but sometimes clapping hands gets his attention. He does respond visually to waving my hand in a motion intended to have him come to me.
While at the shelter we watched him interact with two other dogs and all was very relaxed, easy tail wag, nice nose sniffing through fence and then finally it seems the Little Prince became disinterested and walked away. Also, as he walked alongside other kennels we saw no signs of reaction from him to the other dogs that were barking. Prince seems to do well with all sized dogs, male or female, as long as they are not overly dominant or pushy.

We are still learning more about Little Prince so we will be updating his bio with more details as we learn them.
Little Prince has been accepted into the GSRNC Thulani Program and is headed to a Thulani Foster home where he will receive lots of the normal comforts of home as he settle in. The Thulani Program will also see that he receives updated vaccinations and other medical care necessary to his well being. In addition, The Thulani Program is starting a search for his next adoptive home that will care for him for the rest of his life. He will also come with a supply of food, a cushy pad if wanted, and other goodies such as toys.
Little Prince's medical expenses will be covered for the rest of his life by The Thulani Program!
