Meet Aslan

Hello, this is Aslan, a 2 year old long haired male German Shepherd Dog
Aslan was surrendered by a family with young children. They were concerned that he would not be friendly around the other kids that would come and go into their house. Aslan never harmed anyone, but he has a loud long bark and is protective of the family unit. Strangers/door knockers are going to get an earful. Aslan may not do well in a house with a lot of people coming and going or small children.
At his foster home Aslan is a very happy dog. He loves to be petted and scratched. Playing fetch with a squeaky tennis ball is one of his favorite activities in the yard (or house!) Aslan plays and gets along with three other large dogs. He loves walks too, when the leashes come out, he goes nuts. He is eager to please and if he feels you are mad at him he will give you small kisses to make it better.
Aslan has had training and listens pretty well to basic commands. His recall is pretty good as he loves being with his humans. If invited up on the bed/chair, Aslan will cuddle, but if commanded to get down he does so and sleeps at the foot of the bed on his own pad. He doesnt gravitate toward furniture much, but prefers to stay at your feet. He will chew on bones and chewy toys (see ball above). The month hes been at his foster home he has not destroyed a single thing, even when left alone for a few hours.
Aslan has only a small prey drive as he looks at squirrels and rabbits and our backyard chickens with curiosity, but has not given chase. He is VERY fast and could likely catch whatever he wants!!
Kennel training is done, if needing to be secure for a bit. Aslan sees it as a safe spot as that is where he spent a couple days with us as he was decompressing. He does not need to be kenneled in the house. He is well potty trained and with asks with pushy nuzzling or whiny stares to be let outside.
Aslan has been diagnosed with irritable small bowel. He is thin and needs some coaxing to eat his special food which he will need to be on for the rest of his years. The wrong proteins/fats will irritate his stomach, so treat/food selection is key.
Aslan will be hard for us as fosters to give up as he is so loving and beautiful. Will you be his next great home???
