Breed: German Shepherd
Likes: Morning walks, wrestling on the floor with our oldest son Scott, playing in the snow, sitting in the backyard in the Fall. Any kind of pork, eating Chipper’s food, barking at other dogs.
Dislikes: Sharing Scott’s attention, the dog next door behind the fence, going to the vet and now that he is 12 years old, more often than he likes.
About Shadow: He is a purebred German Shepherd, big at 115 pounds. We have had him since he was 8 weeks old. He is our protector and a great family dog. He also lives with a Miniature Schnauzer – Chipper. Chipper is 4 years old and keeps him young. It’s when Chipper goes to the fence to bark at the other dog that Shadow steps in. He thinks he is protecting Chipper. It’s funny to watch our two year old grandson and Shadow. Shadow is taller than him and wants to give him kisses and will accidentally knock him down with his size. We have used Sit-A-Pet for 18 years. Shadow’s sitter for all of his 12 years says he’s the sweetest German Shepherd she has ever known. He thinks he’s a lap dog and sometimes imprisons her on the couch! His sitter remembers how in his younger years Shadow used to roll a huge log backwards around the yard barking and howling. Quite the circus trick!
