Sherrif (A1729340) is a 2 year old, male tan & white German Shepherd mix weighing 45 pounds. He’s a sweet heart of a guy yet somewhat sensitive and shy. He’s been fairly mellow at the shelter but don’t let that fool you. Likely once he’s comfortable in a “home” and shelter life is a just a memory he will have the energy fitting his breed and age. He’s ideal home will be one willing to give him some time to acclimate, faithfully take him for daily walks, keep him inside when unattended and one that will appreciate his affection matching his kisses with affection in return. He’d like to be your only fur-baby as he’s had some experiences that didn’t go well for him so he’s much happier with humans. He’ll just ignore other dogs while taking a walk. He’s wishing for a home where he’s with his people (not a back yard dog). Besides a warm bed next to yours, lots of love and good food Sherrif needs a home with high walls---he knows how to climb chain link. He’s quite good walking on leash and will look to you for comfort and leadership if he’s feeling a bit unsure. Come meet this sweet charming boy at our Eastside shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd NE. He’d like to meet you in a quieter area where it’s easier to get to know you.
