Bruno (updated bio!)
Age: ~3-5 years
Weight: ~80 lbs.
Breed: German Shepherd
E-Collar training deposit: $100
Adoption Fee: $400
This handsome guy is Bruno. Once he gets to know you, his favorite things are being petted, getting belly rubs, and carrying his ball everywhere he goes. We would like to find Bruno an owner who has had experience with shepherds/working dogs. He has shown some guarding tendencies, and he would do best in a home where his boundaries are enforced, and his owner provides him with some structure.
Bruno is a real sweetheart that does well with other dogs and with cats. He loves to go for walks and will ignore other dogs and people when he passes them. If another dog gets very reactive towards him, he will give “smack talk” back but will then continue on without any problems. This behavior can be mitigated with an experienced owner who will proactively address it while on walks.
Bruno knows his basic commands (sit, down, heel, place, crate, and here). He has also completed a board and train where he was trained to an e-collar. We would like for his new owner to continue to work with him using the e-collar to reinforce the behaviors he has learned.
If the owner does not have e-collar training, we are requiring a refundable deposit of $100 which will be returned once the owner shows that they have completed the training. The fee will be waived if a new owner can show proof of prior e-collar training experience.
We would like to have Bruno adopted around the Baltimore area. He will come up to date on his shots, neutered, and microchipped.
If you are interested in adopting him, please fill out an online application. We will then contact you to conduct a home visit and, once you are approved, a $100 deposit is required.
