This handsome boy was turned into a shelter after his family felt too overwhelmed to care for him along with their young children. Realizing what a wonderful dog Touser was, the shelter called GSRNE for help.
At only 5 years old Touser is still energetic and loves to play fetch. His ideal play date would involve someone throwing a ball for him for hours on end! He rides great in the car, likes going on errands, and enjoys going to the dog park. Wherever he goes he’s happy and constantly wagging his tail.
Touser loves being with his foster family and is very affectionate. He’s eager to please and is very well mannered. He knows sit, stay, walks well on a leash, and comes when called. He gets along with other dogs although he prefers the company of people. He would be okay with a dog-savvy cat but will chase them if given the opportunity. He’s friendly when meeting strangers and tends to gravitate towards women.
Touser has been diagnosed with Pannus, a lifelong eye condition that can be managed with eye drops. Touser sits willingly when getting his drops and is rewarded with a treat each time. His eyes are sensitive to the sun and his foster dad is working on getting him used to wearing Doggles for eye protection.
Although there’s nothing predictable about Touser, he could be described as a classic example of a GSD. There’s nothing he wants more than to bond with a family and be a part of their everyday activities. If you’re looking for an all-around great dog then Touser could be the one for you!
