Male German Shepherd 1yr Old
Rocky is a great German Shepherd. Problem though is I can’t give him the time and lifestyle he needs to flourish. When I first got him I had it all planned out… We would go on drives and trips, might even get to come on the job, as I was supposed to be moving to a 4-day cruisy work week. But that changed and am doing ridiculous hours and days and he’s not allowed to be there. At night he sits there and looks at me says let’s play or let’s just hang out and all I do is say is sorry I’m too damn tired and sore.
He has an excellent personality. He plays really well with other dogs. One thing he has had was regular visits to the dog park, so he’s very well socialized around other dogs. He’s not an alpha so doesn’t try to dominate all the other dogs – he just wants to run and play.
He’s a very quick and willing learner – as all German Shepherds are!
He’s very friendly around new people but will give warning barks to those that approach the property and act suspiciously. I.e. He vigorously barked when someone approached my truck late one night, but doesn’t give out a peep when people are out walking in front of the house or even knock on the door.
He comes with a crate he likes to sleep in – never used to discipline or locked in for any reason. And a heavy duty harness – similar to law enforcement.
