My story

Pika likes chew toys and running with the older dogs and loves being outside playing. He wants to become the alpha dog and will need a strong leader to manage this. He is very smart and highly motivated and would do best with an experienced handler who will hold him accountable. He's your typical young GS dog, he chews on anything and nips, without a strong handler I would not recommend a home with small children. He can be a vocal boy and does not enjoy being crated. He is potty trained. He's settled down while in the house but still needs stimulation to release his energy. The rescue has sent Pika to several Vets to assess his rear hip muscle area and they agree he needs to be walked on a leash to build the muscles on his right hip, but this does not affect his abilities in anyway. He is a happy go lucky boy looking for forever home.
