Toby is a 2-year-old Longcoat GSD who is looking for an experienced handler. The shelter where he was dumped at only said he lived outside with a pack of dogs and by the condition he was in when we got him, the other dogs were not so nice to Toby. He is working at putting on some much needed weight and growing trust with each day. Toby is now house trained and crate trained and is good about only playing with his toys while leaving the human objects alone. We are looking for a home with someone who is dedicated to spending lots of time working and training him as he is a little behind where he should be for his age. He was never socialized around people or places. He is fearful at first but if you gain his respect Toby listens to you. His favorite things to do are playing fetch and playing in the baby pool so a fenced in yard would be best He walks good on leash but can be hesitant in public places, as all that is scary to him. Toby will need a home with no children, gsd experience and no other dogs for now. Being that he needs work, we think it best your time is spent with him and not sharing the attention with another 4-legged friend. He has met a cat and was not interested, he also does not seem to have a prey drive when outside with squirrels and birds running around. So again, with time and training he should be ok. Toby is a happy boy and loves being in the house with his foster mom, he has so much potential with the right person.
