In shelter Dog

Irvine, CA, 92619
Pet name:
German Shepherd Dog
Ken IS AVAILALBE (updated 10-04-2022).To meet any of our dogs you must first complete our online adoption application on our website. For more information and the adoption application for Ken, please visit our website below 3 years old, Ken was surrendered to a high-kill shelter by his own owner. We dont know what led to this decision, but Ken wasnt doing well at the shelter and became rescue only. We were able to save him and quickly fell in love with the big lug. It doesnt appear that anyone had ever worked with Ken before and, while hes an enthusiastic young boy, he had no manners and couldnt walk nicely on a leash. This gorgeous boy got much better, was walked by numerous volunteers, and does well on a leash, knows his basic commands, and is super food and toy motivated.Ken is currently in a dog training boot camp and doing fantastic! Hes learning a lot and is ready to join his forever home. When you adopt Ken, you will also receive an in-home training session with his current trainer, so that you and Ken are both set up for success.Ken is a dominant personality and, while he has done well with dogs who ignore him, he would currently do best as the only dog in the home (although hes still in training and doing better all of the time).The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.


All microchips registered with Findpet can be traced internationally through the American Animal Hospital Association’s (AAHA) universal pet microchip lookup, ensuring your pet's safety at home or during travel.
