Shelter: HALO (Helping Animals Lost & Orphaned)
Pet Description: Hi I'm Lenny, I am a young GSD who requires an experienced adopter. I came to Halo from a county shelter where I lived for 8 months. You see I came into the shelter very fear aggressive and I could not be handled and I was secluded and never placed up for adoption. I bonded with several shelter workers and they fell completely in love with me because they discovered that when I trusted them that I gave them my whole heart! They were able to do absolutely anything to me and actually dressed me up in halloween costumes...I was the cutest dragon ever!! So..I came to Halo and I had to trust more people. I bonded immediately to the director of Halo but I soon began to guard her against anyone. She worked and worked socializing me and as my anxiety reduced I began to welcome other people into our social group. Now I have so many friends at Halo, I walk on the bike path, and I've even walked in Lowes and pet stores. I am muzzle trained and to be safe I am muzzled during my outtings but to be honest many GSD are muzzled or should be muzzled because they are fierce guarders. Anyway...I am such a lover of my person. I give kisses, cuddle, and love to be with them. Now with such guarding behavior some people would think Halo is crazy for putting me up for adoption. But I am ready to find my special person. This special person MUST be experienced with GSD and how about a retired K9 handler?? My personality is amazing and I know the people at Halo will cry and miss me terribly when I leave but they know it's time for me to go to my forever person....LOVE Lenny!!
