Prince is a very intelligent and energetic guy. Once he gets to know you he is super sweet, loves to please, and to get a lot of belly scratches.
Prince came into the rescue in January of this year, when he was about 14 months old, from Kalamazoo County Animal Services. He had been taken there by his original owners because of a deformity or injury of his front legs. The money for his surgery was obtained through fundraising and it has helped him immensely. He does limp a little at times if he has over exerted himself.
Prince's ideal home will include an active family that has extensive experience with GSD's, or other large breeds with 'stranger danger'. Basically this means someone dedicated to making sure he has consistent rules and a stimulating routine, hopefully with many fun 'jobs' to do, and that he is given extra time to get to know company that comes over.
Prince most likely will not do well with any other animals in the home, so he should be the only pet.
With his intelligence and energy, Prince (and his owner) will benefit immensely from obedience and/or vocational training.

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
