Falcon is one-year-old. He is a really great dog with people of any age or size! He especially loves children and will play with them gently. He is dominant around other dogs and we would suggest he be the only dog in the home. We don't know his relationship to cats and the shelter will not test him for us. He walks very well on a leash, is very affectionate, knows basic commands and is house trained. He is a gorgeous black shepherd. We don't see any mix in him but we don't have pedigree papers so legally we have to put mix on his rabies certificate. We would suggest his new owner be familiar with the breed! Shepherds love to work and have things to do so keeping him active would be great for him. He has been at the shelter for too long and his time is coming to an end. Only because he is a favorite amongst the staff has he lived this long. Please consider falcon as we have videos to show just how lovable and obedient he is. He is 50-60lbs and he's a great dog.
