Meet Capone! He is a 7-year-old, 132-pound, Purebred German Shepherd Dog available August 6. Capone is a well-trained gentleman of leisure who listens well, knows “sit,” “stay,” “down,” “roll-over,” and “go-to-bed.” He is protective of his people and home, enjoys a nice walk, playing in the yard, and fun car ride. Capone is dog particular, would need proper introduction, dogs in home should be older with same low-key energy level. He is looking for an adult only home to enjoy his retirement years, however, he does like a good swim and the occasional adventure as he just wants to be around his family. Capone is a Volunteer favorite!

Special Needs: Capone has spondylosis, a type of arthritis spurred by wear and tear to the spine.   Additionally, his hips starting to fade, and he needs to lose some weight 20-30#. If you can provide a 1-story home with no stairs, a ramp to get in/out of the car, a weight management plan, potential supplements and/or medication to handle the pain, and a yard that is securely fenced he would make a wonderful companion.

Further questions? Currently, emails are the only method of communication. We all care about the health of our two-legged caregivers and the community at large, so as a precaution we are suspending our public open hours. We are still taking email inquiries, on-line applications and will be in touch with you as soon as we are able. We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this time! Stay Well!
