When you inquire about a dog, the following questions might be helpful:

1. Why are you giving up your dog?

2. Has the dog ever bitten, nipped or 'gone after' anyone?

3. Does it have any health problems? Who is your vet? May I contact him/her?

4. Where did you get the dog? Does it have papers?

5. Does your dog have any training? Is it housebroken? crate trained?

6. Is the dog left alone for long periods? What does it do? Bark? Dig? Chew? Is it an inside or outside dog? Where does it sleep?

7. How does the dog behave with adults, children? Other dogs? Cats?

8. Is your dog mellow? calm? energetic? protective? affectionate?


Boomer is a deeply loved 3 year old male Sable German Shepherd. He is a great companion. We have dealt with reactivity since he was a puppy and in recent months we have had aggressive behavior occurring towards males and other dogs. This first started happening after a move in Early September and the progress hasn’t been linear but is unfortunately uncomfortable for people and pets in the home currently. We are expecting to move again within six months and I’m afraid it will cause additional regression. I have personally tried adjusting out training regiments but have seen regress in Boomer listening to commands as well. I truly believe that there would be great improvements with specific reactivity and aggression training but I think his quality of life would improve more with a different household and owner. I think he would thrive the most with a single household, no small children, and with someone at home and can continue training throughout the day. I unfortunately cannot provide this to him with the current events of my life and as much as it pains me at the thought to not have boomer as my companion, I know he deserves more than what I can provide.
