GENERAL INFO ABOUT PERSONALITY: Jorah is a handsome and fun dog to hang out with. He LOVES playing fetch in the play yard and he will often take a little detour through the kiddie pool upon bringing the ball back to you! Jorah loves the water and will lay down in the pool no matter how dirty the water is or how cold it is outside. Jorah has huge potential to be an awesome dog. He’s an intelligent guy and responds well to commands. He is learning lots of new techniques with clicker training! He will just need a physically strong owner that can handle him, and a mentally strong owner to provide him with calm and assertive leadership. When Jorah sees other dogs, he often gets too excited and will bark especially if through a fence (very typical German Shepherd behavior). We think that his reactivity to dogs comes from a lack of socialization and wanting to play but not knowing how. Like a typical shepherd, he is extremely mouthy, rough and dominant while playing. Due to that, a lot of other dogs don’t like Jorah. However, he has been a great playmate with one very submissive female lab, and he even shares his ball with her. It is possible for Jorah to be good with another dog but it will take a very specific personality and multiple VERY slow introductions. This dog will likely be too much for a novice dog owner, and he really needs someone to be in charge and keep him occupied with lots of activities. He was adopted to be a narcotics detecting dog, however he did not pass their test which is why he is back with us again. Jorah is easily excited and will try to nip at children, so at this time we are looking for a mature household for this gorgeous boy. HE IS NOT AN APARTMENT DOG! Jorah needs plenty of room to play and preferably a homeowner. Activity Level? Medium. Training Needs? Medium. -High House Trained? Yes. Leash Trained? Yes, and clicker trained. Comfortable with kids? Kids 12 an up may be okay. Comfortable with strangers? Generally. History with other dogs? Generally, he is not good but has accepted one dog as a very good playmate. History with cats? Not good. Additional MEDICAL notes: None Additional. BEHAVIOR notes: None. ADOPTION FEE: $150 for an adult dog. Adoption fee includes: Spay/neuter, initial vaccines, a microchip, rabies vaccine when appropriate, and one free veterinary visit with a local participating clinic.
