In shelter Dog

Macon, GA, 31210
Pet name:
German Shepherd Dog
Name: Cooper
Breed: German Shepherd Dog mix (maybe with Greyhound)
Sex/Age/Weight: Male/est. b-day 10-16-2019/50-55 lbs
Vetting: neutered/microchipped/up to date on vaccinations 
House Trained/Crate Trained: yes/mostly (for longer spans CBD oil and calming supplements recommended)
Dogs/Cats/Children: playful with dogs/not tested with cats/good with children 3 and up
Energy Level: Highest energy
Before FAR: I was a ""free to good home"" puppy given as a gift to someone whose adult dog was mourning the death of their oldest dog and he hated me; so I was then given to a teenager who didnt have his parents permission and for 2 years they kept me tethered by chain to a tree, so I couldnt run flat out like I need to, and I didnt get training or play time with other animals or people or much socializing
Training Status/Commands I Know: leave it, off, sit
Working On: stay, place, down
Things I Like: Running is my favorite, especially with other dogs; I also like eating, snuggling, climbing, wrestling, chasing thrown toys that I might bring back, digging, chewing bones and other dog toys, but sometimes I like to have a little space
Things I Dont Like: I dont like to be alone or crated all day long because it makes me feel scared that Ive been forgotten; I get very nervous being outside in stormy weather; every now and then Id rather not be petted while Im lying down
Ideal Family/Home: I hope someone adopts me who is patient, teaches me consistently what they want me to do and engage my mind, makes sure I get plenty of exercise while keeping me safe, and has a little time every day for playtime and cuddles 
Special Notes: Cooper is a fast runner who needs active outdoor time at least twice a day to work off his energy, so a large back yard with a tall fence or going for leashed runs/walks is best. He is very clever too, so he is highly trainable, but sometimes gets bored with inactivity, so treat puzzles or other appropriate mind engaging activities can help
