Arthur is a 1 yr. & 1 month old, male, brindle Dutch Shepherd mix weighing 52 pounds. Arthur can by a shy guy at times but he also is an energetic, enthusiastic, playful lover boy.
Arthur’s a tall lanky boy that loves to run playful sprints around our play yard so he needs an active parent--daily (perhaps twice daily) walks, maybe hiking and/or jogging. He came to us after riding & falling out of the bed of a pickup without being restrained as is the law…bad human parent! Luckily he only had a couple patches road rash now all healed yet this has caused him to be unsure even fearful of cars and trucks. Arthur is a lady’s man. He can be shier of men. He responds to sweet talk. In return you’ll get a hug and kiss on the cheek. Arthur’s super smart & eager to please knowing “sit”, “shakes right & left paws” and does a “high five” with both paws. Anything for a treat so training will be easy! Cookie monster Arthur offers a paw to shake any time to solicit a cookie/treat. He needs a home with no birds, chickens etc. as he is obsessed—a breed characteristic. Arthur’s life before AWD didn’t offer teaching him much of the big world therefore Arthur is unsure around children so would like an adult family. He should meet any other dogs in the home prior to adoption too— since no life experiences with other dogs. Is there some woman looking for Mr. Right … a tall, handsome, devoted, loving and a bit of a shy guy? How about this very handsome Arthur? He’s waiting at our Eastside shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd NE.
