~~ Greetings, my name is Zenith . I am a 2-1/2 year old German Shepherd male dog. My original owner passed away leaving me in the care of some elderly family members who took good care of me, but were unable to give me the attention I needed. For the past two months I have been in a foster home. All my medical needs have been checked and updated and I was neutered. I have adjusted well.
My house manners are excellent. I love to ride in vehicles and enjoy being left alone in my outside pen when my foster parents are busy. My favorite thing is to fetch. I will fetch anything you throw, but a Frisbee is my favorite. I like to walk, especially in the woods. I have a very high prey instinct and will chase anything that runs away from me including squirrels, rabbits, cats, deer, and even snakes. I do not like dogs that bark, especially small ones.
I am very protective of my territory and family and I do not welcome guests, but I'm okay once I come to know them. I have not had much social interaction, but seem to do well in public unless approached quickly or barked at by other dogs.I would prefer a home without other pets or small children. I would probably do well living on a farm or in the country. Can you give me a forever home and family?
I'm currently being fostered in Elkton VA
