I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.
Meet Lefty! Lefty is a charming, high-energy 2-year old neutered male German Shepherd that came to a public animal shelter as a stray. At the shelter, Lefty was an Adoption Counselor favorite, but like so many other wonderful dogs at public animal shelters, he soon ran out of time. The shelter informed us that he was a wonderful dog, but required basic obedience training and socialization, neither of which was available to him given their limited resources. They implored us to consider him as a candidate for our program. We agreed.
Our initial assessment of Lefty confirmed the shelter’s determination that he is a great dog that will thrive with obedience training and socialization. Since he is new to TDFA, we have just started working with Lefty. We would however consider placing him in a home prior the completion of our work with Lefty is the adopter committed to continuing his obedience and socialization.
The shelter has indicated that Lefty appears to have a genetic condition called “carpus valgus” [front feet splayed outwards]. It is more pronounced on one foot than the other [hence his name, Lefty], but it does not slow him down one bit. He is completely unaware of the condition and leads a completely normal life. We think it actually gives him a bit of charm!
Come meet Lefty!
