Facts about Atlas

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Atlas is a 1-year-old, male, plush-coated German Shepherd Dog in search of a family.

Atlas has a ton of potential and is a great opportunity for someone looking to mold and lead a young GSD. He came to us as an adolescent entering adulthood, clearly lacking leadership and obedience. He doesn't have any sort of bad history, he's just an energetic, high-drive young Shepherd who needs a committed owner, willing to provide consistent structure and leadership.
Socially, he's what you expect, can be a bit bossy and reactive with other dogs, but with proper obedience and consistent socialization he should blossom nicely in time.

This is one of those dogs who with the right owner will absolutely thrive, but if proper leadership is not provided, he could be a bad fit, go in the wrong direction and end up back here with us. For that reason, we're looking for an experienced GSD owner, preferably one who has raised a GSD previously from puppy-hood on up and understands the patience and commitment needed to succeed. We want an assertive personality, someone willing to lead and be committed to putting in the work needed for this dog to thrive. Please no apartments, or homes with young kids or small animals.

Atlas has been neutered, vaccinated, and his adoption comes with Lifetime Training from Von Dubinhaus Shepherds. If you feel you are right for this dog, please submit an application and we will contact you shortly upon review.

About Von Dubinhaus Shepherds Rescue

Many of our dogs come to us from bad situations or after being deemed not adoption material by various rescues or counties.

German Shepherds are our passion, we care about where these dogs go, and strive to pick the best possible situation for them to thrive in. We do not adopt our animals out on impulse and hope to find candidates as excited about training these animals as we are!
