Archie German Shepherd Dog Jefferson City, MO
- Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.
- Good in a home with
- Other dogs.
He is friendly with everyone he meets and generally all about the lovin and ear scratches and belly rubs. He is a strong boy so can be a bit enthusiastic at times and needs some direction to calmly sit for attention. He does live in a foster home with 2 female GSD's. He plays rough and tumble with the younger GSD and will engage the older GSD when she lets him. He does need direction at times to not push play and he is learning this skill. He can be picky about his "male dog" friends and also can be exuberant with meeting some dogs. This will need a strong leader, supervision and managing to insure he develops a positive relationship with other dogs in the home. He needs a home that will allow him time before introducing him to new dogs in the home. Archie due to size, strength and play style is not recommended for small dogs or cats. He is working on his doggy introductions skills so his future home would need to set him up for success by guidance and supervision.
After a good walk and some play time he is content to lay at your feet and hang out. He is crate trained and housebroken. He has met children and been open and friendly with them but his size and strength is a consideration for very young children. Teenage children or older is recommended. He can be mouthy at times in play but very responsive to a simple "stop" in play and he gets the idea. He is learning good leash skills and basic sit and stay . He is strong and will test if his leader "means it" and so firm consistent direction is needed while on leash. He would benefit from continued training in basic obedience. He is very treat and food motivated. He loves toys of all kinds, especially chew bones and "stuffies". He truly is a pleasure to be around and a great companion. He loves to go on hikes, play in the yard and travels great in the car! This dog is the complete package!
