About NASH

Adoption Fee: $400.00
German Shepherd / Great Pyrenees
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

*** BREED EXPERIENCED OWNERS ONLY, PLEASE *** 'NASH' is a handsome 10 month old, 85 lb. German Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix male, that has 'double dew claws' on his back legs. Nash is a big couch potato, a super lazy, laid-back boy inside. Nash knows some basic commands: sit, wait, break (release), come and shake, and he will gladly practice each for a treat or a meal. Nash is a sweet, smart, affectionate and obedient boy, but initially leery of strangers, both human and canine, and therefore can be 'reactive' on a leash. We attribute this in part to his breed mix, and also his youth, immaturity and previous limited socialization demonstrating in this anxiousness &/or nervousness. Off leash, he is a different boy and much more approachable. On leash, without distractions, he is a good boy and a pleasure to walk. Nash likes to play fetch and loves his treats, both which are great ways to win him over, make him more comfortable, and begin bonding. Nash warms to you and loves being petted, sitting next to you, and just basically 'hanging out'. Nash's optimal home would be one with a confident, calm, breed-experienced owner willing to help him build confidence as he matures, and knows how to positively direct and mitigate/manage the breed characteristic traits of guard dogs through exercise, training and positive reinforcement techniques. (He is both highly food motivated as well as praise driven). A home with high energy, volume or traffic would not suit Nash, so children would not a good fit with him. With other dogs, it is 80/20 rule with Nash. 80% he could get along with well, and 20% not. Through a fence he may bark, but then run along side with others. He has a strong prey drive and is territorial, so he needs a fenced in yard. Nash is neutered, fully vaccinated, de-wormed, microchipped, on monthly heart-worm preventative, crate-trained and house-trained. This rescue does not do it's own 'shots' ... all medical care is done by a licensed, certified Veterinarian or done under their direct supervision (ex., monthly heartworm treatments &/or deworming). All of our rescued dogs have been on a nutritional regime which includes high quality food and supplements (ex., probiotics; vitamins, etc). This is done to bolster their immune systems and overall health; the result benefits their adoptive family with a pooch who has a lustrous coat, bright shiny eyes, and happy and healthy disposition.
