Male, 1 year of age, 72 pounds, GSD, Liver Color
Arrow (new name after being rescued), along with his sibling, was purchased from a Craigslist advertisement. While purchaser met with the owner, the owner hit both dogs for barking when the purchaser approached. Purchaser bought both shepherds in order to save them from the abusive owner. Arrow arrived with scars and a ripped left ear. His physical appearance was said to be related to possibly an existing dog in the seller's home that was attacking Arrow.
Arrow had fear aggression so purchaser contacted the rescue for assistance. When Arrow arrived, he was extremely skittish and untrusting. After about 2 days, Arrow began to soften and allowed some petting. He has been with the rescue for several weeks now and is seeking affection like a well-tempered shepherd. He has found confidence in meeting new people however there is still a small element of distrust. Arrow enjoys playing with some of the other rescue dogs. He will need to be housebroken and be allowed the time and patience to develop into a family member.
The rescue is very selective and Arrow is no exception. Due to his horrible upbringing, the rescue is seeking an all-around perfect environment so that he can prosper and grow. Arrow would likely not be a good candidate for a home with cats. No small children due to his skittish nature.
