My name is Hendrick and I'm looking for my forever family!

I was hanging out with one of my stray dog buddies on a Friday night and forgot to look both ways before I crossed the road! I got hit by a car and rolled under, lucky for me a rescue lady saw the whole thing happen!

It was pretty scary so I hid under a parked car and some people finally got me out, wrapped me up in a blanket and took me to a place called "the vet". Luckily I was ok, just a little banged up.

My foster mama took me home and got me into rescue and now I've upgraded from street dog to foster dog!

I'm a little shy but I LOVE playing with the foster puppies here and stay out of the way of the big dogs who don't like to play. I'm learning how to sleep in my crate overnight and I already picked up house training. Whenever my foster mama is too busy to play with me and my puppy buddies are takijf naps I just lay nearby her quietly or chew on a toy.

I still have some puppy tendencies and I'm very shy around new people. The more nice people who give me treats I meet though, the more I'll learn to trust them! The rescue ladies say I'm a very typical german shepherd because I love to bark when I hear people or dogs outside!

Hendrick is a young GSD about a year old and is fully grown, just needs some meat on his bones! He's a "pocket GSD" and will probably max around 50-55 pounds. He's a sweet boy who loves human affection and is very good with other dogs as long as they don't push him around too much.

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
