Rex is a gorgeous 4-year old neutered German Shepherd Dog, up-to-date on all shots.
His owner is a medical student who is moving to a small condo in downtown Toronto and will now be working medical shifts that can last as long as 36 hours. He could get a dog-walker and keep Rex, but has decided a small condo home alone for long periods is not the optimal life for Rex, he deserves a new family who can give him the attention he deserves.
Rex loves playing fetch and likes to play with people (will ignore other dogs at the dog park if you are throwing a ball for him). He also really likes to splash around in water, although he's not a good swimmer, so likes to stay in shallow water. He is loyal, smart and loves to hang with his human.
Rex does not do well with meeting strangers, especially people he doesn't know who come to his home. He is okay passing strangers on dog walks, although if a stranger stopped to meet him, that might be a problem, and he is fine with most other dogs. He has been a client at a doggie day care facility and was okay with the other dogs.
Staff at doggie day care said Rex also has herding tendancies, he will nip at ankles in doorways, trying to herd people, but this could be worked on once in his new home. They feel it is a bossy/herding thing, not an aggressive behaviour.
Rex will chase cats and possibly small dogs.
Rex needs an experienced owner who can deal with his 'stranger danger' and herding instinct. His new home should not have children, cats or small dogs. Visitors to his new home will need to be introduced properly and his behaviour monitored until he is comfortable with each new person who visits.
Dog Speed will be assisting this owner with placement for Rex, therefore all inquries need to be directed to us and an adoption application form will need to be completed.
NOTE: We do not adopt any animals that are to become "gifts" unless the animal is going to be a gift within the same home.
