Sarge is a 6 year old black & tan male that came into after the sudden death of his owner. He was raised as a housedog and for the last few years had a female GSD as his companion. He rode sitting in the front seat of his owners truck whenever he went into town. Sarge has no real training, no leash work or obedience training but does want to please you for attention. HE has never been socialized with other animals so I do not recommend small dogs or another male and did fence fight with the neighbor’s dogs but made no attempt to go over or under the 4’ fence. He is missing the tip of his ear and was hit by a car as a puppy and had the femur removed and pins to repair the breaks but shows no issues from it now. I do recommend he be on a supplement for joints for the rest of his life.
We recommend that he goes into a home with a female dog or a home with a retired person as he is used to being with someone all the time. He has been very stressed this week with all the people coming in and out of the home and having been in the home for a day with his dead owner.
Sarge needs a TLC home and will become a good companion.
