Hi everyone my name is Onyx. I am approximately 5 years old and a handsome all black German Shepherd Dog. I was surrendered in April 2016, at no fault of my own, by my previous owner. Luckily Southeast German Shepherd Rescue picked me up fast and found someone to take care of me until I find my forever home. I am a big boy, weighing 98 pounds, and looking for my forever family. I am looking for a home where I can be the only male dog. I am OK with girl dogs if they are OK with me. I don’t mind little dogs, but sometimes I forget how big I am. Cats are fascinating to me, so I need to be around a dog saavy cat that can put me in my place when necessary.  But again, I would shine brightly being the only animal in the house. I love people, especially men, but will come up and lean on anyone. I will be your shadow. I am a smart boy, I know basic commands like "sit", "stay", "down", "shake" and "speak". I like to bark to let strangers know that I am the protector of my domain!  Health wise, I’m up to date on all of my shots and neutered.  My foster family recently put me on a glucosamine regimen to make sure my hips and joints stay healthy since I am such a big guy. I pull a bit on a leash, but my foster mom and trainer are working on teaching me how to walk nicely. I can get really excited when I see someone on a bike or another dog walking, so I need someone who can take the time and teach me how to act appropriately. I also love to cuddle on the couch, if you don’t mind my big head on your lap, I can lay down and watch a whole movie with you. I love to play with toys, but I don’t know how to share with other animals, but I love to play with people. If you're interested in adopting me, and are in SGSR's adoption territory of VA, NC or MD, please fill out an application or contact your adoption coordinator. thanks for reading about me. Love, Onyx.  Oh, I'm being fostered in Virginia Beach, VA.

 



Our adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit. If you have any questions about the adoption process please contact sgsrescue@gmail.com .
