Meet Kodiak, a purebred sable male German shepherd. He is a gentle giant who loves to go for walks, car rides, explore and just sniff.   He is eager to please and although a big boy at 90 pounds, he has an extremely gentle temperament. Kodiak came to us badly abused. He has come a long way in his foster home and is ready to start his next journey. 

His ideal home would be adult only (no children) where he can get all the love and attention he craves.  He is a ‘soft dog’ and does not like loud voices or to be spoken to harshly. He listens attentively and takes direction very well.   Kodiak loves routine and very much enjoys his walks. He has a medium energy level and is content to be a couch potato lying around watching TV. His foster home has several German shepherds and does well with all of them. He is not aggressive or confrontational. He would most likely do best with a female companion and not with a multiple dog home. 

His BFF is a small Belgian Malinois mix and they love to play chase. Rory runs and Kodiak tries to herd her. He is a bit socially awkward and doesn't understand dog play, he thinks herding is playing. Some dogs would not find this amusing so he needs a mild tempered dog companion. There is also a resident training kitty in the foster home and he does well, however, on occasion when he doesn’t get enough exercise, he will play a stalking game trying to find her.  When he does this, he just sits and watches. If the cat runs, he will chase but will correct easily and stop when given the command.  He would not do well in home with several cats.  

Kodiak needs a quiet home with calm, firm handlers. He would not do well in an active house and gets nervous with loud noises and voices.  An owner experienced with German Shepherds is a must. He also has a high prey drive for deer and squirrels so a secure 6 ft wooden fence is a requirement with no exceptions. On walks, a deer or squirrel will send him into high alert. For this reason, Kodiak cannot be off leash, or he will chase deer and be in the wind.  If you are looking for a dog for long hikes off leash, Kodiak is not the dog for you (a professional trainer has confirmed this).  

Kodiak is a sweet, beautiful, gentle boy whose dream is a loving, quiet home that will give him the love and kindness he so deserves. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and on heartworm preventative. He is obedience, crate and potty trained. He walks well on leash, great in the car and is highly food motivated.
