This is Cirus. He is an almost 1 year old ( 2/8/17 ) German Shepherd/Collie mix who loves people and is extremely affectionate ! 

Cirus came to us covered in mange, horribly undernourished and in so much pain he cried when we tried to pet him. His entire body was covered in sores and so swollen that it was painful for him to move. Time, love, patience, good food, and some really strong antibiotics have turned him into the stunning new version of himself we see today!

As we got to know him, we realized that he had not been properly fed, he had little to no exercise, his muscles were atrophied and he was socially regressed. At 1 year old we are watching him do and learn what most puppies learn at 2 and 3 months old. But he is smart and a quick learner and wants to please us, so he is doing fabulous! He is working on being fully house broken, crate trained, and to walk properly on the leash. He loves to go out into the back yard and find anything that he can play with and bring them into the house. He’s a happy, goofy boy now but still has a few minor issues with being ‘mouthy’ like a puppy and not realizing how big he really is. Cirus is just like a big teddy bear who loves to cuddle. He melts our hearts and we know in time, with training and more patience he will be a well-mannered young man.

He’s very cautious around other dogs when he first meets them but mostly he just wants to play with them. We haven’t met any that he hasn’t won over in his playful initiation. We haven’t seen him interact with cats or other small animals.

Because Cirus still thinks he’s a puppy and doesn’t realize how big he is he’s probably going to do best with a family that doesn’t have small children so he doesn’t knock them down. We have seen him around children though, and he seems to know they are small and is gentle with them.
