Hi! My name is Toby. I'm a 3 year old 80 pound happy, happy, happy boy. My foster mom likes to call me goofy because I love attention and like to bring her things to show her how much I like her. I am housebroken, crate trained and love dogs and people of all sizes. My foster mom thinks I would be best in a home with older kids and bigger dogs because I am mouthy and am not aware of my size. I still think I'm a lap dog and might accidentally knock a little one over. Because I'm so submissive, I get along great with my fur siblings, who are also German Shepherds: two males and one female. I like my ball and other toys, too, but my favorite thing is food. I mean, who doesn't like food?! Thanks to the nice man at Blue Line K9 Training, I have basic obedience training and have been taught not to bark at cars. He also helped to calm me down when I meet other dogs because I get so excited when I have the opportunity to make new friends. I also know how to sit and heel and have very good recall. I LOVE car rides but will need a family that will continue to enforce what I've learned in training. My ideal family would be active and take me places even if only for several daily walks. My foster mom is so impressed that I don't even try to get on the furniture, although she invites me to sit on it. She is not so impressed that I like to counter surf, but we are working on it. I mean, nobody's perfect, right? Think you could be my furever family? If so, please work with your adoption coordinator or complete an app at southeastgermanshepherdrescue.com. I am being fostered near Fayetteville, NC.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org .
