Xander is a gorgeous 2 year old, long coat black and red neutered male German Shepherd. He was an owner surrender to a DC shelter. All other German Shepherd rescues passed him up and he was out of options. The shelter called to ask if we could make room for him. His assessment at the shelter was unremarkable, but we sent him to spend some time with trainers to assess his temperament before making him available for adoption. The trainers report he has a good temperament, shows no aggression toward other dogs, and is friendly with all people who approach him, however children and cats are unknown. He is not food motivated, but responsive to commands. He also rides well in a car. In his previous home, he was left to his own devices and never had any structure or training.
Xander will need a home with previous German Shepherd experience and will need continued training with an approved trainer. Previous experience includes handling and training another pure bred German Shepherd as an adult. Approved trainers are trainers with whom TRD currently works.
