Handsome German Shepherd Mix
Shane is an extremely friendly short-haired German-shepherd mix, tan with black markings. He has the short, dense coat and the friendly playfulness of a yellow Lab and the alert, beautifully-marked face of a German shepherd. He weighs about 35 pounds and is about four months old. He should grow to be about 60 or 65 pounds.
Shane is a beautifully-configured young dog. He will grow to be a strong, healthy, playful dog who loves to run -- but he is also a sweet dog who wants to snuggle next to you on the couch.
It is clear that someone was unkind to Shane when he was little. When we first met him, he was afraid that we wouldn't like him. He always hopes, though, that every new person will like him -- he wags his tail and smiles shyly at you. He is always trying to please, and it takes very little to make him happy and put him at ease.
And then, talk about a friendly, playful guy! He's always very happy to see you, and he's always hoping for a pat or a kind word or a little fun.
Shane is friendly with children and other dogs, but so far, he has not learned good cat manners. We think he can learn, though, with a little time and patience. He needs to become more confident about walking on a leash -- he needs to learn that there will be lots of people out there who will like him.
Shane is an intelligent, affectionate, playful German-shepherd puppy who is just waiting for people who will be kind to him. He has all the friendliness in the world -- he just needs a family who will love him and be kind to him.
