Meet Parker - COURTESY LISTING

***** SEEKING EXPERIENCED FOSTER HOME ******

Parker is NOT part of the Serendipity German Shepherd Dog Rescue (SGSDR) program but is being listed as a courtesy for the shelter in hopes of finding a foster home to care for him and bring him into the SGSDR foster program.

Parker is a handsome long haired 7 yr old GSD. He is neutered and heartworm negative (yay!). Weighing at 110lbs, he is easy to walk and very well mannered. Parker was surrendered a shelter in Indiana after his owners felt that they were no longer able to care for his needs. Parker was originally purchased from a breeder and his owner's had him his whole life. He is housebroken and crate trained!

Parker participated in some basic training about 5 years ago, and has the manners to prove it. However, he has exhibited some inappropriate protective behaviors around his female owner in the previous home. He can NOT live with small breed dogs or cats, and the shelter is working to determine how he might do with dogs more his size.

Parker loves his people and the shelter staff are having no concerns with handling. Parker does have a fear of veterinary and grooming procedures, which may require special handling and/or medications for anxiety prior to the vet visit. He does have a history of one minor bite incident to a human when someone new was visiting his home. Due to this history and Parker's protective tendencies, professional training will be required after placement.

Parker has been really great while at the shelter. He is pretty easy to handle and has done well with strangers. He was temperament tested and did not mind them taking his toys or dry food and allowed them to look into his eyes and touch all over his body! When he was given a rawhide and wet food, he resource guarded those items towards the fake hand but excelled in all other areas!

SGSDR currently has no foster home capacity for Parker. We are seeking a foster home for him for initial intake into rescue.
