As you can probably tell from my photos, I am a uniquely adorable German Shepherd Dog. My ears are floppy and my fur is long and a bit scruffy. My personality, though, is spot on GSD – I’m intelligent, loyal, eager to please, protective, and I’ve mastered the whole Velcro-dog thing. When the heroes of GHGSDR rescued me, I was scrawny and my hair was scarce. My physique is a work in progress, but my friendly, calm, happy go lucky and playful character is steadfast. You need me, I’m there. You don’t need me, I’m still there for you. You have work to do, I understand...I’ll be waiting next to you, or between you and the door, just in case I need to protect you!
Ok so you probably get it...my #1 priority in life is my humans. A close second, is playing. I am pretty much a professional when it comes to playing. I particularly LOVE playing with other dogs, however, I am not above having some fun playing by myself. Just give me some toys and watch me entertain myself (and you, lol!).
So if you’re looking for a tall, dark, fluffy boy with an amazing personality, please let my rescuers know you are interested in Augustus. Speaking of Augustus, did you know the famous Roman Augustus was the adopted son of Julius Caesar? Just think...if you adopt me, not only will you be getting a fantastic new furry family member, but we will be re-creating some important history!
Special Considerations for Adoption:Augustus is a big, playful boy who would do best in a home with another dog.
