In order to meet BAZ please complete the Expression of Interest Form.
Baz is a loyal, intelligent and affectionate dog. German Shepherds can be indifferent to strangers and can even be aloof however, once they befriend you, their devotion is life-long.
Baz is usually very gentle, even around kids, and is wonderful company. He has been known to play 'bite', or ‘mouth,’ with unfamiliar people but this is typical of the breed. German Shepherds are known for being 'chatty' and Baz is no exception, vocalising his excitement when he sees other dogs or gets excited.
Baz is a happy healthy boy because he has been so well looked after and is on medication for his joints. This medication will need to be ongoing but will be paid for by his current owners.
Due to the GSD’s size and confidence they are best suited to people who understand the breed. Baz is very people orientated and would suit homes with a stay at home parent or active retirees. He enjoys a calm environment where he is welcome to be involved with family activities. Baz needs a medium to large secure and interesting yard.
Baz will not suit homes where residents are very young, frail, elderly or time poor.
Baz is fine with dogs he is familiar with once properly introduced (family dogs for example) but is not good with strangers. He becomes excited and vocal when around dogs he does not know. Baz has a tendency to forget his manners and rushes into the space of another dog, eager to make friends and play. As this can be misinterpreted it is best to keep him on a lead so nothing can escalate.
Although he is very friendly and has grown up with children Baz wants to play, can jump and also ‘mouth’. We recommend any kids be teenagers or older and only if gentle and calm around dogs.
This adorable German Shepherd enjoys daily 15 – 20 minute walks and some playtime at home.
How is this dog on a lead?
Like most dogs Baz is ok unless distracted. He is best suited to a harness lead where he does not pull. Baz can be easily distracted by other dogs.
How is this dog off the lead?
Like most dogs he is sometimes good but his recall is not always reliable. He is not currently allowed off the lead outside the home and we recommend this practice is adopted by his new owners.
Tolerance to being alone.
Playing with the hose and his toys. However, top on his list is chilling out around the house and spending time with his human family.
Can be unpredictable around other dogs.
