Shadow is a German Shepherd / Dutch Shepherd mix and if you know anything about these breeds, you know this means that Shadow is smart. And not just smart, but SMAAAAAART! Shadow needs to be out and about, living his best shepherd life... interacting with people, working his little brain, and of course, playing fetch! We could easily see him being a working dog or involved in search & rescue. The story of Shadow’s arrival at the shelter is pretty sad. His former owner found him against the fence with a piece of metal wire impaled under his tongue, essentially attaching him to the fence with his mouth. We can only imagine how painful & scary that must have been for him. His owner couldn't afford the veterinary expenses so they made what we're sure was a difficult decision to surrender him. Shadow enjoys playing with other pups, and then getting cuddles from his human friends. But remember he's a shepherd so he can get mouthy sometimes. Shadow is easily redirected but he shouldn't go to a home with young children, but older kiddos who want to work with him would be wonderful! Shadow would benefit from a family who has a resident playful dog, or who are active and want to take him on lots of adventures - or both!Shadow will go home with the ongoing support of the Orange Dot Crew (a volunteer advocacy group), as well as a goody bag and a crate. He will also get free training thanks to Friends of AAC. Reach out to meet this smart & sweet pup!
