Valley) is a true GSD – curious, playful, and high energy, His quirk is that he has a heightened sense of “stranger danger”. This stems from having no socialization skills during the most important time in his life as a puppy. Because he can be fearful in new situations and has the stranger danger fear, it is necessary to keep all of his meetings controlled as with any dog, in a heightend state they may presnet as a bite risk. It takes a long time to be accepted inside his circle of trust, but once you are there, he will be your loyal and lovable shadow forever! He needs a strong pack leader, who is knowledgeable of the breed and will continue his socialization and training. Patience and consistency is key! Unfortunately, he is not trust worthy around kids, especially younger ones who are unable to read his “signals”. He is also reactive to loud, rambunctious activity; it will trigger his protective nature. One of his favorite things is to play fetch with himself by throwing his toy up in the air and catching it! He loves to play with other dogs but tends to play rough and has no sense of other’s personal space. As a result, he is not a good “dog-park dog” and should be introduced to other dogs in a controlled manner.  He’s lived with cats for the past year but still wants to chase them if they run. It is more playful than aggressive but definitely something to keep in mind. Chance kennels well and knows basic obedience commands.  He is tie-out trained but would do better with a large, fenced in yard for him to run around in.
