I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
My name is Silas and I am a big boy at 90 pounds! I have long hair, but my foster Mom says long-haired boys don't shed any more than short haired boys and she has both. My foster Mom tells me I am so nice and handsome, not food aggressive and I love playing with other dogs, even male dogs. I do not counter surf and I take food very politely. She tells me my one fault is that I am not fond of cats. I love going for walks and watch carefully where I am going and love to stop and enjoy sniffing at outdoor scents. Because of my youth, about 18 months, I have lots of energy and love to chase balls that my foster Mom throws for me. I adore my foster mom's 3 year old granddaughter. My foster mom takes me to Petsmart and recently to a nursing home for a visit. I was a little nervous at the nursing home, but my foster mom said I did just fine. I am just about perfect, but may need a tiny bit of instruction about sitting on my foster mom's lap. She says I am too big for that. My ears use to hurt and it was ok with me for my foster mom to put medicine in my ears. Also, I cut my paw outside. I did not want her to soak my foot for 10 minutes in epsom salt water, but I decided it would be best and now my foot is well.
She tells me I am not a lap dog even though I climb on her lap when I get the chance. My heartworm test is negative and I am microchipped so I can be found if I get lost. I love being a part of a family and don't like being outside by myself. My foster Mom has 2 other German Shepherds (male and female). I love them both. My foster brother and I run and play and really enjoy life. Riding in the car is one of my favorite things to do. I don't jump in the car. I climb into the car very nicely. I'm told that I am an absolute sweetheart, so I just know that with my great personality I will find my forever home soon.
