Smurf is a 5-year-old 50 lb. German Shepard mix. He is a very sweet and loving dog but had a hard start to life, which has left him weary of moving too fast when meeting new humans. It takes Smurf a few days to warm up to new people, but once he trusts you, all he wants to do is cuddle, play and be with you. He is great in the house, fully potty trained, crate trained, and loves to play fetch and learn. He is smart, loyal and loves other dogs. His favorite time of day is when he gets to go on walks, and he would make an excellent running partner or agility dog. Smurf is currently in training to help him feel more confident around new people and needs an adopter who will continue to work with him. Smurf is good with dogs but would do best in a house without any cats or small children.
