Date Adopted: June 8, 2020

Kai just turned one year old in November and still has much to learn.  At 90 pounds, he’s big for his age, but he doesn’t know it all yet.  His favorite time is play time, and he loves playing ball and gnawing on chew toys.  Outside in the fenced yard, he can run like the wind.

In his foster home, he has made friends with both an adult male GSD and a female.  In his original home, he lived with two children, ages 8 and 16, and he also shared the home with a cat.  It was a townhouse  his owner was renting; and when it was sold, the new owner would no longer allow dogs.  Kai’s owner and her daughter tearfully called GSRNE to find out if we could take him so he wouldn’t have to go to a shelter.

Kai was placed in a foster home and loved going for his daily walks and play sessions in a large fenced area.  A neighbor and her female GSD would join in, and the two young dogs had a blast running and playing together.  During the walks, it became obvious that Kai is not comfortable when a stranger walks towards him or looks at him for too long.  After he barked and lunged towards some people walking by, we moved him to another foster home. He has been getting training and is learning to focus on his handler rather than stress about other people in the vicinity.  Kai is ready to find his forever home with someone who is experienced with German Shepherds, can give him confident and consistent leadership and who will be sure to continue the daily training. If this sounds like you, please call to request an adoption application or let us know that you are already on our “approved to adopt” list!
