Meet Capone! He is a 7-year-old, 126-pound, purebred German Shepherd Dog. 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 leash walk, gently 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# (which he has lost 6#). 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.

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

Adopt-A-Pet has many great dogs and always need volunteers. To see all our current dogs, visit the Adopt-A-Pet website, our Facebook page or at the shelter on Jensen Road in Shelton. For more information, email or call 360-432-3091.
