German Shepherd Dog

Large • Young • Male

Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • Prefers a home without: cats, young children

Hi my name is Chief. I am a 70 lb., 2-year-old German Shepherd Dog. I am neutered and up to date on all my vaccinations. I am a big goofball that loves to run and play. I am also really smart and know lots of tricks like sit, down, and stay. I am house trained and crate trained but I get really scared being alone, so I would love for my new human to be someone who is home with me a lot, that way we could cuddle. I will love to snuggle up with you. I really need my new home to be a place where my family will be uber patient with me and always set me up for success. Yelling at me and forcing me to do things are big turn offs for me. I love to work, especially for food and praise. Positive reinforcement methods are mandatory to adopt me. I would do well with another dog that enjoys to play and will also be patient with me if I am a bit awkward at times. But I would not mind being an only dog either because then I would get all of the cuddles. Oh and I have never met a cat before so unsure if we would be friends or not. I do walk nicely on a harness and love to go for walks. I really enjoy car rides too. Due to my size and zest for life I cannot live in a home with children, they are way too exciting for me to handle. Chief is not a dog for first time dog owners. Experience with positive reinforcement training is required. As part of the adoption agreement, adopters need to commit to taking Chief to an approved positive reinforcement trainer. A list of approved trainers can be provided or your preferred trainer can be evaluated for approval. This is non-negotiable in the adoption process. A receipt for multiple one-to-one sessions or a group class with an approved trainer is required before adopting Chief. If you are interested in adopting Chief, please fill out an application at For questions about Chief you can email Serious inquiries only please.

The brief descriptions we have posted about our dogs are based on our observations and interactions with them since coming to our rescue. We will take our dogs out into public areas to watch their behaviors around strangers and other pets while walking them. We also place them in a daycare facility to ensure that they are sociable with other dogs and if not, which dogs they do not perform well around, such as small dogs or another large breed. When available, we place our dogs in a foster home to observe their house manners and help them to trust people again. If we observe bad behaviors we work with them to correct behaviors such as jumping on furniture or paws on the counters. There will be times that we will not be able to provide the answers to some of your questions – like are they good with children or cats – especially rescued dogs found as strays with little or no background. Even though we spend as much time as possible interacting with all our dogs, and they behave a certain way when with us, German Shepherd Rescue of the Rockies cannot guarantee their future behavior with their new families.
