Jude is a gorgeous 18mth old GSD boy who is castrated.
In the house, Jude is well behaved, he is well trained and focusses well when given commands.
Jude is fine with larger dogs but not good with small ones and he doesn't like cats. He has pinned down small dogs that have rushed him when he has been out off the lead.
Jude has basic training and socialising. Off lead, his recall is good unless there are other dogs around.
He is boisterous when's excited but soon settles.
Jude is nervous and cowers when he has to go to the vets.
Jude loves his ball but will not give it up if other dogs are around and can be a bit possessive of it although not with humans only other dogs.
His fear of the unpredictable holds him back, so Jude would be best suited in a home with no children and someone who is willing to keep his body and mind active.
His owner has done more than most in terms of getting help and training but it's the fear of children that is causing him to be rehired as there are 2 children in the home and the owner has to keep them separate. Jude simply does not like the noise and unpredictability of small young children.
He is increasingly spending time alone as he can no longer go on family outings. The owners parents their back up 'dog care' but now they no longer feel able to manage him.
We think he could be a wonderful dog for a couple without children, possibly with other shepherds.
Can you offer this lovely boy a home and help build his confidence?
Isn't he a stunner?
