***ADOPTED!*** CARL – Great Dane/German Shepherd – Male – 1-1/2 Y
Such an incredibly handsome boy with such an expressive face! Carl’s previous family was having some issues with him that they did not feel they could work through so they surrendered him to us and he went right into “Doggy Boot Camp” with our trainer. Here is what we have learned over the course of his stay with us ….
Carl is wonderfully housebroke and crate trained – he loves his super extra-large crate and is not destructive of the blankets or beds you put in it (Carl weighs in at 115 lbs just as an FYI). We have noticed that he has the best sides of both breeds. For the Great Dane side, he is super laid back … huge couch tater … could almost work as an apartment dog. Our trainer calls him a “dufus” due to his easy attitude and kind of “du-te-du” theory on life. He is friendly with people and seems more interested in them than he is in animals in general. In regards to his German Shepherd side, he is very observant and attentive …watching all around him. Super smart and does have the shepherd prey drive. Carl does NOT do well with cats. Also, thanks to the Shepherd, he is protective of his people, his yard and his vehicle. This is a definite shepherd feature and can be handled with proper training and supervision.
Carl seems to be selective of the dogs he likes — any introductions to a new family’s existing dog would be done through the supervision of our trainer just to be sure that first impression is a good one. Carl does great in the car, has learned to walk loose lead — knows sit, heel and down (although needs some fine tuning) and is learning “wait”.
Carl is neutered, up to date on shots, wormed and microchipped.
