Sarge came to us from a local animal shelter where he was turned in as a stray.
He was at the shelter for close to two weeks and, surprisingly, no one claimed him.
So, we did.
Sarge would not put weight on his back foot. We suspect he caught it in a crate or kennel bars. The vet checked him out and did x-rays and could find no reason for the limp. We gave him some pain pills, crate rest with a big bed someone donated (and he chewed out the middle of) and time. He is now pretty much limp free and running the yard.
Sarge appears to be a pure bred German Shepherd. He has a very loud growly bark that can scare some people but he is very sweet and typical of many in his breed a big baby.
Please note that adopters will be expected to participate in a dog obedience class.
There are many reasons why taking your new puppy to a dog class is a good thing:
encourage bonding, increase pups self-esteem, learn new things or new ways of teaching those old things, meet new people who love dogs too, have resources to help solve those doggy behaviors we don’t want, and maybe, just maybe, get involved in the world of doggy sports because today, there is a multitude of doggy sports for everyone!
Here are a few: Rally obedience, agility, musical freestyle, lure coursing, barn hunt, hose work, conformation, herding. Your wallet may be lighter when you go out and compete but your life will be fuller!
Sarge is available for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment.
