Cash is a 4-5 yr old Great Dane/German Shepherd mix who needs a home! We have been fostering him for about 4 months while his mom has been going through a rough time. She has decided to go back into the military soon, so we offered to help him find a permanent "forever" home.
He is a 90 lb. big, playful and sweet boy, but has not had much training until now. We have him in both private and group lessons to work on his separation anxiety issues, but he's great around people and other dogs. He loves being outside (in a fenced yard) and he has shown significant progress with a training collar and daily reinforcement. He has lived successfully with cats, but has also had some issues - I would recommend close supervision with him and smaller animals, to ensure he doesn't accidentally hurt them with his size/playfulness. He would do best in a home with other dogs, as this also helps him with his anxiety issues.
He is not yet 100% in the house alone (he will dig into the trash, mark "his" territory, or counter surf if you don't keep an eye on him) and is getting better in a kennel (however, before we started training, his separation anxiety resulted in 2 destroyed wire kennels). Despite the rough start, he has shown great progress in the last few months and is definitely smart enough to be completely successful! A solid wood fenced yard is an absolute requirement, as he seems to enjoy wandering and exploring if he gets the opportunity. He really loves the dog park and he's great on leash for walks/runs, but also seems content laying around the house (with supervison).
He will need an experienced dog lover/handler, due to his separation anxieties, but he is a sweetheart and a true gentle giant. He definitely prefers women to men, and is great with older kids. He has a lot of love to give, but needs to continue to work on his training. The private/group training is good for the next 6 months and we would be willing to transfer the classes over to his new owner. He is up to date on all shots and heartworm/flea meds. We are asking a $100 re-homing fee to ensure he goes to a responsible family who will take the very best care of him.

NOTE: In our experience many German Shepherd Dogs are very good with kids. In our bios, we may provide information on our experience with a particular dog and children. However AGSDR discourages ALL unsupervised animal/child interaction. Children should be supervised at all times when they interact with ANY animal, whether it is a horse, dog, cat, bunny, lizard, or any other species. Even loving household pets can have a grumpy day, or otherwise get tired of a child's attention, so proper supervision is essential for the well being of any child and any pet.
The entire biography of this dog is based solely upon our volunteers' direct experiences with the dog. The dog's age is an estimate, and statements about the state of health, temperament, training, and ability to get along with other animals, children, cats and other dogs, is estimated solely based on our volunteer's experiences with this dog. Your experiences with this dog may be quite different.
