Are you looking for your new best friend or maybe a trail partner? Pietro is a 8 month old mini shepherd/aussie mix that loves to give hugs and will create a deep bond with his forever family. He was raised in a shelter and is still making up for lost time, so he needs someone that will be extraordinarily patient with him while he learns new skills and gains confidence. His perfect adopter is 1 or 2 adults in an active, but quiet single family home in the suburbs (no apartments or shared living space, not in the city). He would not be a good match if you are looking for a social butterfly, but if you are a nature-loving, hiking or running introvert, Pietro is your guy! He needs a kid free zone at home because hes submissive, nervous and still learning to be brave when faced with new experiences.
Pietro wants to be near you at all times, a big fan of toys and cuddles! He likes to hike quieter trails and he makes excellent eye contact with his handler. However, every new experience is scary to him and he will need you to have an abundance of patience, kindness and solid leadership to help guide him. His new family must be committed to ongoing professional training.
Pietro has a beautiful coat with hues of blue, gray and brown; he currently weighs about 30lbs and will probably be around 35+ lbs full grown. He has spent his first year of life in a Texas shelter and now lives with a foster family in Wisconsin. He has all of the wonderful shepherd traits in a smaller size: loyal, loving, the neighborhood watch team captain, and smart & easy to train. Hes been doing excellent with house training, loves his crate and is VERY food motivated!! Pietro is living in a home with dogs, cats and kids but he will only be matched with a family with no kids. Hes fine out in the world around them, but they do make him nervous and so we will respect his wishes and find him an adults-only family to call his own. Pietro is worth your investment - he really is a wonderful loving and kind soul.
