May I introduce Flash who we believe is only about a year old. Not full GSD, maybe a bit of Collie in him. Coming up to 2 years of age. Flash was taken in from the pound so we have no history on him. His vaccinations have been started, he is microchipped and now neutered.
Flash is a very lively, very excitable young man, who does not seem to have been given any boundaries. Loves playing with other dogs. Too boisterous to live with young children but loves people and being cuddled.
Flash will need an active home that can give him plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. He will need to be taught many things, walking nicely on the lead, boundaries in the home, but could be a fantastic project for someone who wanted to do something like agility. He would maybe benefit from an older dog to act as a role model and to help with discipline.
Flash went for a short foster break and this is what his foster dad had to say about him:
“Flash has real personality and is full of mischief but it is just to demand attention. He is very bright and so easily bored and will grab anything handy as a toy but if you say “NO” firmly he will immediately drop the item. He “Sits” when told and will give a paw. He loves people and is very affectionate. He will come when called and put up with as much fuss as you are willing to give him. Really loved our dog but doesn’t know when the poor old boy has had enough so we had to separate them to give our one some peace. I wouldn’t really say he is particularly boisterous for such a youngster, as I write this he has stretched out on the dog bed plotting his next raid on the bin when he thinks we are not looking.
He is house trained and not the slightest sign of aggression. Probably because he was a stray he seems to be permanently hungry and gulps his food down in seconds. He pulls on the lead but he just needs training and stimulation to make a great dog. Not seen him with children but I have seen nothing to make me think he would not make a great family pet. In fact he would probably do better with a young and energetic family who could keep him active and occupied.”
Are you Flash energetic enough?
