German Shepherd Dog - Sargent - Large - Adult - Male - Dog
A very happy but sad up date on Sargent. The happy part is we have decided to not move Sargent from the home he has know since joining our rescue. The sad part is that decision has been made because of his aging joints. Sargent will remain in what was his foster home, and is now his home, and the rescue will continue to keep him on joint supplements and pain management along with the rest of his medical needs. If you have been interested in this beautiful boy but for some reason could not have him join your family please consider sponsoring him to help cover the cost of his medical. He, as well as us, would be very grateful. Breed: German Shepherd Color: Bi-Color (black with very little tan) Age: 6-8 years Size: 63 lbs, but is under weight House Broken: Yes Obedience Trained: Some Living With: Foster History: Owner Surrender Date Posted: 1/21/2010 Good With: Children-Yes Dogs: Yes Cats: Unknown but probably Sargent is a sweet 6-8 year old boy who is currently being fostered with another GSD (German Shepherd Dog) and a GSD mix. He comes to us as an owner surrender due to the inability to care for him any longer. Sargent is currently 10-15 pounds under weight due to not being fed properly and poor choice of food. His vet work shows him to be healthy despite the lack of good healthy nutrition. Sargent is great with children and other dogs but we do not yet know how he is with cats. There is no food aggression but he can be a little rough when playing with toys. He is house broken, rides well, but could use some work with leash walking. He wants to play and has the energy to do so! If interested please contact us at [email removed] or submit an adoption application that you can find at http://www.dogrescuemd.org/id18.html FOSTER UPDATE - Sergent is a wonderful dog. He has the energy of a puppy and the discipline of an older dog. He loves to play with his ball ball, he loves to play with his foster brother and sister and is just enjoying himself. He has put on some weight and looks fantastic, a very handsome German Shepherd and he is very gentle. If you're looking for a dog that your children can play with and not have to worry if the dog will bite them Sergent is the one. He is the type of dog that doesn't get upset if you pull his tail or trim his nails he just tolerates anything you want to do. I'm not suggesting anybody pull on his tail but kids sometimes forget. He does have a lot of energy and he does love to bark. Just his size alone and the loudness of his bark is enough to scare any would be intruder he makes a very good guardian dog for your home when you're not there but he is all bark and no bite. UPDATE: August- Sargent spent sometime in foster to adopt but that did not work out because of the many steps in the home. Since he has been back with his foster he is no longer limping and is back to playing with the other dogs in his foster home. Sarge will need to go to a home WITHOUT steps.
