Kenzo is available for adoption through GSRE – this is what his current owner says about him.
Kenzo is a 15-month-old, male, semi-length coat, black and tan German Shepherd. He is not currently neutered, but is fully vaccinated, flea/worm treated and microchipped. He has no known food allergies and no disclosed medical issues. He hasn’t been in his current home very long and was found by them tied up to a fence, abandoned in Liverpool. After being scanned for a micro-chip at the vets, the breeder was approached and did not know who Kenzo’s owner was.
Kenzo is being rehomed through GSRE as he is not a good match for an adult with autism who lives in the home.
Kenzo’s experience and reaction to children is unknown and due to having no history on him, he will not be rehomed with young children. He is not good with cats and he will bark/react when he sees other dogs. When people come to the home (doorbell) or when he gets excited, he will jump up and mouth but is not aggressive. He is described as being a nervous boy who jumps at loud noises or shouting and will often jump up and mouth as a displacement behaviour. He is described as not being keen on joggers, cyclists, pushchairs and most things with wheels on.
Kenzo is currently left alone for 2 to 3 hours with no destructive behaviour and is good when travelling in the car. He will bark when he’s looking for attention and will also bark for his ball and at birds. He lives indoors and is housetrained. He takes treats gently and will display commands sit, down and paw for his food. He plays ball nicely too. He will pull on a lead when he sees another dog and has a selective recall. He has only been to the vets once with his current family and appeared ok with being there. He does not show any possessive tendencies over food/toys.
During the time the GSRE assessor spent with Kenzo, this is what they said about him.
Kenzo played well with the assessor with a ball. He barked if he thought he was being ignored and loves being in the garden. When the assessor walked him, he did pull at first but then calmed down. He reacted when they saw another dog and a pushchair and tried to pull all the way home but was able to be calmed down. When the assessor asked Kenzo get him down, as he jumped up, he mouthed their arm (no bite or nipping).
Kenzo will make someone a beautiful companion. Somebody who has GSD experience who can show him boundaries and give him some training. He is not aggressive, he just needs a firm owner that knows the breed.
