Luther is a strikingly handsome 9 month old German Shepherd mix puppy. He is 55 pounds now, but will continue to grow and fill out to be a large boy! He hasn't quite grown into his long legs and giant ears yet, a little awkward and clumsy which is most adorable! Luther is spunky and playful as well as cuddly and loving. He is house trained and is learning basic commands/manners. His adopter will need to carry on with his training to ensure that Luther continues on the path to becoming a well-behaved obedient adult. Luther gets along great with other dogs of all sizes and he has never met a person that he didn't love. This sweet and social boy has a congenital heart condition which required surgery on 11/17/16. The surgery was very successful and Luther is doing great! His adopter will need to bring Luther for annual cardiology checkups and Luther takes a medication that costs $5/month. We have every reason to believe that Luther will live a long, happy life! He is otherwise healthy, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and ready for his forever home.
