Hi! I’m Daytona, and I am a very smart boy! You know-- “shepherd smart!” And I am looking for a home that can appreciate and take advantage of the shepherd mind. I’m the kind of dog that you can be a partner with.
I’ve had professional training, because my former owner didn’t understand shepherds, and I had to learn some manners and respect. Let me tell you, I LOVED training! It was so fun to be challenged like that, learning new things and working as my ancestors did. And I would love a home that can challenge me and put me to work all the time! And, I come with a free in-home training session so that you and I can start off on the same page! But I would excel at other sorts of training – especially scent training!
I am one of the Lucky Ones. Being an 8-year-old shepherd/collie mix at a shelter where they have to euthanize for space, I was “numero uno” in line for a very sad ending. But Young at Heart just couldn’t leave an awesome dog like me behind, and so, I found myself on a car ride to a new life! And now I wait patiently for a forever family, one that likes sweet, waggy dogs like me! I’m a very good boy, housebroken and trustworthy, and I get along with other dogs.
I am healthy and oh-so-loveable, and now all I need is a mom or dad to love! I love to snuggle, and enjoy a good scratch behind the ears. I’m a leaner, too, so the more I like something, the more I lean into you. It’s kind of endearing, if I do say so myself.
I would make a fabulous companion for that special person that’s waiting for a handsome guy like me! I’m healthy and already neutered, up-to-date on my vaccinations, and microchipped. My adoption fee of $175 allows Young at Heart Pet Rescue to help other older dogs and cats like me get a second chance at a happily ever after. Just fill out an adoption application to arrange a visit.
