This handsome young man is Zak who is 5 years old and has been neutered since he came into the rescue.
Zak has been in foster since April 2019 and has proved to be a lovely boy, a dog who is great with all people including children.
Zak has never shown any aggression towards anyone, he is also very quiet and rarely barks.
Zak was brought up from the age of 8 weeks with children under 10 and lived as a family pet until early in 2019. We believe that he may have lived outside and not in the house.
His previous owner confirmed as we suspected that he comes from working lines, his parents were Czech imports. Having said that he does not have the traits you would expect to see in a dog from such lines.
Zak is pretty laid back, he is a very aloof dog that doesn't bond strongly and he is quite happy with his own company. He is not attention-seeking, he's not a cuddly dog and he is also very quiet for a GSD. He tends to be more of a man's dog.
When he first arrived he didn't seem to have much training although he has learnt very quickly. He now walks lovely on a dogmatic head collar. His recall is not great.
Zak can be very choosy with other male dogs but is generally fine with females. We don't think he was socialised or walked much as a youngster.
He was neutered just after he came into rescue and behaved impeccably at the vets even when faced with yappy dogs in the waiting room. The staff commented just how well he behaved.
Zak has a lovely straight back and sturdy frame the way GSD's here used to look. He has huge paws and the cutest ears that point together which everyone he meets comments on. He has no health issues.
Zak is very food orientated but never aggressive with food, he just barks like mad until you put the bowl of food down for him then gulps it down as if he has never been fed before.
Zak is a great dog but his new owner will need to keep up with his training.
A really lovely boy who now deserves to find his forever home, he won't disappoint you.
Zak is a very handsome boy as you can see.
