Shade is a beautiful but tall and leggy, 28", 1 yr old GSD. He came to us because his owner died. So sad for him, he is lost. He is looking for someone to call his own, he IS GOOD WITH CATS. He is scared and feeling threatened, so someone with some quiet, patience, and understanding would be good for him right now. Shade is good with all ages of kids, he is afraid of strange dogs,so care would need to be taken to introduce him. He knows sit, down, off, come, and give five!!! Shade loves to play with sticks and balls, and will fetch, also loves to hike in the mountains and play in the snow and the creeks. He doesn't jump fences or dig. He would make someone a great companion!!!!
