Merrick is a 3 year old male German Shepherd Dog in need of a loving family to welcome him into their home and lives We deal almost exclusively with GSD rescues and very rarely see better looking dogs than this guy -- he is just striking an absolutely gorgeous animal with an extremely soft coat. He s not listed as a purebred as we do not have paperwork and based on is facial structure we believe he may have some Wolf-blood in him but regardless man what an animal Personality-wise Merrick is friendly and fun but a very high-drive dog. He is currently in-tact and around a 100 pounds so he is certainly a lot to handle. He needs consistent obedience work and a strong leader to keep his manners in check. Getting neutered will help things a great deal in that regard and make him easier to handle -- our rescue is run out of pocket and we hope to have him neutered soon but are only able do so as funds allow. That said we are making him available at this time and would let him go with a neutering-agreement from the adoptee.Socially he s friendly towards people and has done well with female dogs we ve paired him with but he s more wary of males. Again this is an in-tact strong-willed dog so not totally surprising. Merrick s adoption comes with unlimited training from Von Dubinhaus for the duration of his life so we definitely are looking for someone who will take advantage of that and set up at the very least socialization appointments so we can make sure he becomes a well-balanced dog. To note we ve also noticed he does tend to chase shadows a bit another thing we can work on.Overall we are very fond of this animal and he has done quite well with us. We feel he has the potential to be an AWESOME dog but we are going to be picky where he goes as he is an extremely powerful animal and needs solid leadership going forward to ensure he reaches his potential.Please do not contact if you have the following - cats- small dogs- children under the age of 7- live in an apartment or condo- a non-fenced yardIf you feel you are an excellent candidate for Merrick and meet the requirements please reach out and we can chat further ...
