Say hello to Duck! This affectionate8 month old German Shepard mix is going to warm your heart with his warm and loving personality. Duck is still a puppy and therefore loves to play with his squeaky toys and other dogs. Once he’s finished with play time he is happy to snuggle by your side on the couch, or snooze in bed. He is very affectionate and connected to his people, giving kisses and pressing his head into your leg for scratches behind the ear.
German Shepherds are a highly intelligent breed and Duck is excelling at learning basic obedience. He is potty trained, sleeps through the night, is able to be left in his crate when alone, and is mastering leash manners. When out on a walk he is indifferent to other people and dogs, sticking to his owners side since they are his main focus.
Duck would do best in a household that can offer him plenty of play time to expend his puppy energy and will continue his training. (And who can truly offer him a forever home; this is for life!) Puppies can not be left alone for long periods of time, so their new family needs to have at least one family member home the majority of that day. We estimate his final weight to be approximately 60-70 pounds. (TS)
