Meet Mater

This handsome dog is Mater, a 2-3 year old male German Shepherd/heeler mix. We are guessing this mix cause of the interesting markings on his coat
remind us of a healer and his body size. But his head and coloring look
like a German Shepherd. Mater has a thick black and brown coat and weighs
38 pounds and this is full grown.

He was pulled from our local Animal Shelter where he had been picked up as a stray and down there over a month and no one came to claim him.

Mater is very sweet natured and enjoys being with his person. He is a little shy and reserved on first meeting but we are really seeing his fun personality come to life the longer we have him. He can be very energetic and excited and then he settles down nicely. But he will need daily exercising and room to run so a fenced in yard will be required for Mater. We don't see him doing as well in an apartment unless he gets daily long walks or runs.

Mater tested well with other dogs and should be fine with children, 10 and over, maybe not younger due to his size. We don't think he was socialized a lot so new experiences like getting in the car has him nervous so will just have to be patient and help him gain confidence with his new surroundings. We have started his crate training.

Mater is up to date on his vet care, neutered, heartworm negative
and microchipped. He is on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. Such a cool
looking dog, his owner will be so proud to own Mater!
