Facts about Him

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Him is a GSD/Labrador Retriever-mix, male, 1.5 years of age.

A sweetly animated little snuggler with an outgoing and happy disposition, Him is heart-and-soul a people-loving canine who will form a deep, life-long bond with his family members. Highly social, friendly, sensitive and affectionate, he thrives with human companionship and close contact--- including cuddles and kisses!

While this fun-loving youngster has shown himself to be an intelligent, obedient, very well-meaning dog who is eager to please when he knows what is expected of him, he’s young and easily distracted when outdoors. Him will flourish with a responsible, caring owner who provides him with the leadership and guidance he needs and craves right from the start. Steady guidance, patient leadership, and positive reinforcement training will help channel his puppy-like enthusiasm, and, no doubt, help him mature into the confident, well-behaved adult dog and family companion he was born to be.

Training and Socialization classes are recommended for Him. Not only will he benefit from and enjoy these classes, but he’ll surely excel in them too. This will also be an excellent way for his new owner to bond with him as well as to reinforce good canine manners. In addition to formal classes, providing safe opportunities for Him to meet new people and master new activities and situations will set him up for success as a polite, accomplished, very well-mannered family canine member.

Active, lively, playful, and extremely spirited, Him loves the outdoors and will need regular outlets for his mental and physical energy to stay happy, healthy, and well-behaved. While energetic with puppy-like exuberance, his exercise needs aren’t all that extreme and can be met with interactive outdoor play and free-runs in a securely enclosed area, regular leashed walks, and outings alongside his beloved family members to whom he will be faithfully and lovingly devoted for a lifetime.

Him is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. While we think he’ll get along well with a compatible, similar-sized dog he has been properly introduced to, particularly one of the opposite-sex, a home visit and a meet-n-greet with any housemate pets will be required prior to adoption. We also think Him will do well in a home with children of any age so long as children and pets alike are taught to respect boundaries and interaction is monitored as it should be.

Him is a Monroe SPCA adoptable dog who currently resides at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Come meet him during kennel hours Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm, closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

All Monroe SPCA dogs available for adoption at the shelter have an adoption fee of $120.00. This fee includes the dog being spayed or neutered, HW negative, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption.

About Monroe SPCA

About Our Rescue Group...

Monroe SPCA (Monroe Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is a 501c.3 tax-exempt, non-profit animal welfare and rescue organization incorporated in the State of Michigan in 2010. Monroe SPCA is governed by all-volunteer Board of Directors.

Monroe SPCA’s mission is to save, protect, and improve the lives of animals. One of the ways we accomplish our mission is by being the leading non-profit organization facilitating adoptions and providing medical care and treatment to homeless animals at Monroe County Animal Control. We are also the leading rescuer and rehabilitator of animals at this shelter, finding and securing placement for some of the neediest and most vulnerable animals with partner rescue organizations (all of them no-kill) as well as through our own network of foster homes.

Additionally, Monroe SPCA, now, also provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm Treatment.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with filling out an Adoption Application on the animal you're interested in adopting. Once we've received and reviewed your completed application we’ll contact you, usually within 2-3 days (remember, we're all volunteers). Our adoptions are best-fit placements, meaning we strive to ensure a good match for both, the animal being adopted and the adopter.

Our adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $120.00 to $200.00.
Our adoption fee for cats and kittens is $75.00.

Adoption fee includes the animal being spayed or neutered, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption as well as all dogs being Heartworm negative or receiving treatment for Heartworm.
