Hagley is two years old and turns three on May 2. He’s close to 85 pounds and has the coat and tail of a German Shepherd, but also has a lot of Lab traits as well. Medical wise, to my knowledge he’s up to date on all of his shots, and he was neutered last summer. He’s battled dry skin maybe two or three times since he was a puppy, but I’ve been able to fight it off each time with coconut oil and baths with Burts Bees animal shampoo. Personality wise, he is initially very protective over his human and over food/toys/treats/water with new dogs and can be somewhat timid/defensive. After enough time being around new dogs (typically a couple weeks) he plays really well with medium to big dogs just like him, but he’s never had much experience with small dogs for me to be able to determine if he responds well to them or not. He does also get very timid if he is on his leash and another dog is super eager to go into his space. If Hagley is able to roam around freely and play with new dogs, he lightens up very quickly. Overall, he would probably be better off going to a home with no other dog or a home where you have the time and patience to allow him to adjust and become used to the other dog. He does chase small animals like squirrels and birds in the backyard, so I’m not sure how he’d react to a small dog. He does, however, react well with cats. He’s been around cats since he was a puppy and I’ve never had a problem with him and any cat he’s met. As far as children go, he hasn’t had a lot of experience with them either. He was around them somewhat as a puppy and occasionally since then, but not constant. From what I’ve seen in the past, he’s better off with no children or older and bigger children because he’s such a big dog and is still technically really young so he tends to play a little too hard for a small child or baby. When around new people or if I come home after being at school or work, he at first has a lot of energy and has a problem with jumping up. Jumping has always been something I wanted to combat and he’s gotten better about it, but he still does it often. After awhile of being home or someone new being around he calms down and relaxes. He’s been house trained since he was younger and has only ever had an accident inside the house probably once or twice. He loves playing outside and could do it all day if you let him. He does bark at people or other dogs walking by and our neighbors next door if they’re outside. When our neighbors actually walk up to the fence to pet him, he’ll give them kisses and love on them. Overall, he is an amazing dog and it will break my heart to actually give him to a new home. He just deserves so much better than what I’m able to offer him and he deserves an owner who isn’t in school full time along with working two jobs that can be home more and play with him more.
