Sheldon is a big, sweet, gentle guy. He is currently living in a foster home and is thriving! Sheldon loves interacting with other dogs and is an active member of the shelter's playgroup where he's known as "Uncle Shelley"--- it's so cute! The little things in life really enrich his world-- like snow (He LOVES romping around in it when it gets cold out) and he's got a great, soft, shiny coat. Like most German Shepherds, he is a loyal and highly intelligent companion. He has benefited from professional training and is already a pro at sit, down, and paw (both!). He has also been practicing stay, wait, and leave it, commands. Sheldon has mastered an easy-to-execute greeting ritual that ensures his introductions to new people are polite, calm, and positive. Sheldon loves to play fetch and to go on walks. He is used to wearing a harness on walks and lets you to buckle him in with ease! Sheldon would thrive in a home with adults and perhaps someone with experience owning large dog breeds. Sheldon is a volunteer and staff favorite- so come meet this wonderful boy and see why we love him so!
