My story

Good Morning future forever family. I’m up early and ready for you to find me!

My name is Nantes and I am a 15 week old, male, shepherd mix. I weigh about 20 pounds and have seen the vet for my vaccines and microchip. I still have a lot of growing to do, so I don't know how big I will get .
I am a sweet, gentle, loving boy. Just the kind of guy you would want to chill out with but, like any puppy, I do have a rambunctious side and will need lots of exercise and outdoor time. I do LOVE cuddles and am happy being handled, but I have sharp puppy teeth so please watch anything you value or that could harm me like cords, shoes etc. Foster mom directs me away with toys when I want to chew on something I'm not supposed to have and she tells me "Noooo Leave it ". Having my leash on and in hand is another helpful tool to direct me away from things you don't want me to have.
My crate training is going well, I am very good in there and settle quickly. I get fed my 3 meals in my crate and will go right in at mealtime. I’m still learning to sit and wait until you put my dish down. My crate is covered completely because if there are too many distractions I won’t settle. I don’t have anything in my crate because I get too hot and enjoy the cool bottom of the crate. I am learning my crate is my safe place. My bedtime is around 10pm and I am sleeping until about 6am without a peep. When I move to my new home it will be an adjustment for me being away from my foster family so I may whine a bit until I get used to your routine. In my new foster home, I adjusted very quickly with no whining at all the first night. There are lots of dogs in my current foster home to keep me company so If I am whiny the first night, if possible, put my crate in your room so I don't feel so alone . If all my needs are met, don't give in to any whining or crying, or I will think that's all I have to do and you will let me out. Please take my leash off anytime I am in my crate so I don't get tangled up on anything, it's safer for me . My day time routine is 2hrs in my crate and one hour out. If you can't watch me at any time, it's safer to put me in there so I don't roam around the house and get into anything I'm not supposed to.
Potty training is going well. As long as you take me outside often, I will not have an accident in the house. I haven’t learned how to tell you I need to go outside yet so lots of trips to my potty spot are essential.
being consistent with me is the key. I always pee first thing in the morning and poop right after breakfast. I don’t always poop right after my other meals so don’t be alarmed if it takes me awhile. Keeping my leash on in the house will help you to learn when I need to go out.
My leash training is a work in progress but getting better because I love to go for walks. Foster mom keeps my leash up high when walking so I can't grab or chew on it. I'm so curious about everything that I zigzag all over. Foster mom keeps a fast pace and does lots of turns to keep me focused on her instead of my surroundings. Loud noises and strangers don’t scare me at all.
I’m very social and I love people and will go right up to anyone. I live with a five year old and I love to play with him but because of my sharp puppy teeth I am always supervised when I’m with him. I have to go to a home with kids over 3 years old because I will need a lot of attention and training. It will be like having another child and I will need lots of your time.
There are 6 other dogs in my foster home so I’m learning how to interact with different dog personalities. They are all very gentle with me and mostly ignore me. Foster Mom supervises all interactions so she can step in and advocate for my foster siblings if I get too rough or start nipping. Foster mom is always holding my leash so it's easier to stop me quickly. Please advocate for ME and supervise all interactions with any dogs, especially if there are any in my new home. Introduce me to well balanced, non aggressive dogs, to ensure interactions are positive experiences. It is not necessary for me to meet every dog I see.
There are 3 cats in my foster home and I’m curious about them but they hiss when I get close (always on leash and supervised) so I don’t bother with them. If I’m going to have a cat sibling then I should never be left unsupervised when the cat is near.
I have been in the car a few times. I can’t jump in on my own yet so foster mom lifts me in and secures my leash in the door. That way she can grab the leash before she opens the door so I can’t jump out on my own. Once we get going, I curl up and have a nap.
It is highly recommended to keep my leash on, inside and outside, in my new home for at least 30 days (except in my crate)so I can learn where I can and cannot go or get into anything I'm not supposed to, but most importantly, to create a beautiful bond with my new family .
Working with a balanced, professional trainer for puppy classes is recommended, so I can be the best pup I can be and have a great relationship with my new family for years to come ❤ .

Why adoption is a great option

Nantes, a Oro-Medonte German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Oro-Medonte, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Oro-Medonte.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oro-Medonte already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oro-Medonte breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oro-Medonte paves the way for another one to be saved.
