In shelter Dog

Tacoma, WA, 98402
Pet name:
German Shepherd Dog
Coat length:
What Stryker lacks in energy, he makes up for in gentle kisses. This big goofy boy is a total love bug! Stryker is a bit shy and unsure when encountering new things or animals (even cats!) but is working hard to gain confidence. He is great with all humans and has done very well around older kids.

Stryker rides well in the car, has been non-destructive, is motivated by love and praise, and only needs stern verbal to redirect. Ear scratches are his favorite thing, and he may even trip over his own feet running to get or give you affection. 

Stryker would do well with a low to moderate energy home or even as a second dog. Once adjusted with his new family, he may enjoy tagging along to run errands or grab a bite to eat. He is a very big boy with an even bigger heart and is eagerly awaiting someone to give him all the cuddles he can get.
