|Lobo is a 7-year-old German Shepherd that weighs 75 lbs. He is very well-behaved in the house, is housebroken and knows how to use the doggie door. He is calm and loves to hang out with his people. He is also crate-trained and doesn’t mind sleeping in the crate at the beginning. He is not destructive when left alone – he might bark first for a few minutes after his person leaves the house, but after that just lies down and goes to sleep. Also, he doesn’t dig in the yard and doesn’t try to escape. He has been great when meeting new people and has no problem with strangers coming to visit. |
Lobo knows all his basic commands and loves going for walks. If there are no dogs around, he walks really well by his owner’s side. However, if he sees other dogs walking by he will bark and probably lounge at them, so his future owner needs to be strong enough to handle him and some obedience and leash training with his future owner will be helpful.
Lobo is very fond of car rides – at first he is a little excited, but then lies down and waits to arrive at his destination. He is good with large- and small-size dogs, as he previously lived in a home with 5 other German Shepherds and now lives in a foster home with a few other dogs.
Lobo was adopted for five months and returned because his previous adopter was not experienced enough to handle him on walks. Before the adoption he was a pretty confident, happy dog, but sadly he was returned pretty skittish.Unfortunately, we have no idea what he went through in his previous home that he became skittish.Being old and changing a few homes already has made him a little nervous, so his future owner needs to take their time and be patient, to give him time to adjust. During the first few weeks he will probably keep going to the door and looking for his foster mom
.Lobo is an absolutely wonderful dog that spent almost two years in a shelter before Angels Bark saved him, on his very last day, and he deserves the best possible home; we just don’t want him to change any more homes. His next home needs to be committed to keep him, work with him and earn his trust.
The best type of home for Lobo is a house with a yard and another large-size dog. Lobo is not good with cats and we will not adopt him to a home with kids – an adult-only home would be the best type of home for Lobo.
