GSRA adopts to residents of VA, NC, and SC only

Hi my name is Dexter and my foster mom says I’m one handsome dude. I love belly rubs and don’t even care if you’re a stranger, I accept belly rubs from everybody. I love to go for a walk and chew on a bone. I am a big boy and like to wrestle play, which can scare some dogs, but I don’t try to hurt them and am learning to be respectful if they don’t want to play with me.

Dexter’s Foster:

Dexter is one of the friendliest GSDs I have ever met, no aloofness about this guy, everyone is his best friend. He is learning to walk on leash. He is house trained and crate trained. He is a mouthy player. High prey drive. Prior to coming to GSRA he probably hadn’t had much interaction with other dogs but he is learning quickly to read their body language. He is quiet. He’s silly and goofy, and when he gets excited he has an adorable prance. He is good with large male and female dogs. No small dogs or cats. He is good with older children, no small children due to his size, and occasional mouthing. He would be okay as an only dog if his family could provide play dates. He does not need a fenced yard if he has plenty of exercise for his medium energy level. This guy has the temperament of a Labrador with the stunning good looks of a German Shepherd. He turns heads every time he is out and about. His coat is longer than a normal GSD but not as long as a plush coat, it is oh so soft and shines when the sun hits it. He is such a great guy that is sure to be very popular.
