About Ross

German Shepherd / Dutch Shepherd
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Ross was surrender to a shelter when his elderly owner passed away. He is looking for a quiet, one person home. Ross can be picky about his doggie friends and he is not a fan of cats therefore he would do best as an only pet. He is still playful and despite his size, walks well on a leash. He enjoys going on walks. This gorgeous boy is very loyal, protective of his person, affectionate, and loves belly rubs. Ross very much wants to have someone of his own to love. Ross is 8 years old and 121 pounds (yes you read it right - 121 lbs). Ross would do best in a home with the following criteria: -No kids, other dogs/cats/pets -One adult preferred -Experienced dog owner -Low foot traffic home (non active home without lots of people coming in and out) Please understand that we are an animal shelter and thus unable to say whether the dogs are housebroken as they are not in homes.
