Hi my name is Sir Heinz. I am a German Shepherd Retriever mix. I am between 16-19 months old. I still have a lot of puppy playfulness in me, and I am already getting to be a big boy. I weigh about 80lbs.

I really love people, and I love to be petted and loved on. I love to give kisses and hugs, climb into your lap, and show my love and appreciation to my humans. I want to be with my humans always, and really don't like to be left alone too much. I will follow you like your shadow! I can be a bit pushy for your attention and will nose everyone else out of the way, to be the center of the attention, always!

I am VERY smart, and a little stubborn. My mom said shepherds have all these traits, and that I might do best with a family with German Shepherd experience. I need someone who will help me work on training.

I like other dogs who are well-balanced, or submissive, and NON-dominant, but I really love my people most. I have a lot of energy, and get excited to see humans and kids, and might be a little much for kids under 4 or 5 right now because of this, and also because of my size. But I love older children who have experience with big dogs and know how to be nice to me. I love attention, so a family with multiple people and kids, and maybe even a family member who stays at home, would be perfect for me.

Because of my energy, I really need a fenced in yard to run around in. I love to run zoomies and explore, otherwise when I am excited, but bored, I like to chew. I don't like to stay outdoors all the time, so I need a home where I can also spend a lot of time inside with my family, snuggled up next to you, and not be alone outside, because I love people so much!

I am almost housebroken and I am crate trained. I never have accidents in my crate, but I sometimes need some reminding when I am not in my crate.

I just got over something called Parvo and Kennel Cough, and I am all healed from a skin infection, neutered, and ready for my forever home! If you have German Shepherd experience, a large fenced yard, an active family with large dog savvy children, and are not gone all day, please send in your application for a chance to meet me! I promise you will fall in love.
