Major is a gorgeous, large, young, neutered, male GSD.  He came into our program from a shelter asking for our help.

He is very active, strong, and energetic, but settles down after physical and mental exercise.  He is very smart and takes direction well, but he will test you.  In his foster home, he goes on walks, jogs next to a bike, plays fetch and is learning to release the ball, and is trained daily to learn obedience commands with a professional trainer.  He is a true Shepherd, he loves to work—put through obedience commands and learn.

He is still a puppy and is learning how to be calm and obedient and not to always be so excitable.  He is a very confident dog and doesn’t seem to be afraid of anything.  He greets people with caution, but once greeted properly he is friendly.

He is crate trained, potty trained and great on leash.  Because he is still a puppy, his attention span is limited at times.  This is typical of such a young pup that is still learning.

The person or family who adopts Major will need to be signed up for dog training with Major after he has been with them the first week.  He will need to continue his training in his new home to bond, trust and respect his new family.

Major loves his tennis balls, Jolly Balls, Kong, and Nylabone. Although he enjoys playing fetch, he is still learning that he needs to give up the ball so someone can throw it for him.  He has learned the trade game—gives up his tennis ball for the one you have in your hand.

He really wants to please his handler, and enjoys working.  He is a happy, loving dog who yearns for a family of his own.  If you are committed to going to dog training and can handle a large, active pup, this is the dog for you!
