MIEKO is a 3-year-old German Shepherd mix. This beautiful, incredibly friendly, young boy sat at Shelter in L.A. for OVER A YEAR Since leaving the shelter, Meiko has been living at his trainer's house along with her family and dogs. Trainer Elisa says he is an amazing dog! She's introduced him to lots of people, including older kids, and we recently discovered Meiko previously lived with a family that had four young kids (ages 3-7) and he did well with them. He is very friendly with all people! He also loves dogs. Elisa takes him on pack walks and he gets to play with her other dog clients, which range in size, age and personality. He does great with everybody - he is very polite and playful. He particularly loves a female German Shepherd that he plays with constantly. He would do great in a home with another playful dog to keep him busy. He has so much fun playing! Meiko is a complete lover, and a bit of a goofball. When you call him over, he throws his body onto the ground with hopes of a belly scratch. He is very affectionate, and charismatic. Everybody who meets him falls in love! His future owner needs to be a strong leader who sets boundaries from day one, someone experienced with German Shepherds or other smart working dogs. Meiko's been very well-behaved and takes corrections well, but like any smart adolescent, he might push boundaries if he felt like his human was not in control. Mieko is crate-trained and does really well in the crate - no barking or whining. He'll need a home with a high fence and secure yard, and he should not be left outside without supervision. He was able to escape from his previous yard, which is how he ended up at the shelter. Mieko lived with a family with 4 young children in his previous home before ended up at the shelter and kids and him grew up together until he ended up at the shelter. This special boy deserves a wonderful active home after waiting at the shelter over a year.
