Raider is a great 5yo dog that we bought from a famed German Shepherd breeder in Washington State. We have another large dog, a Rottweiler, and Raider loves him but he can play very rough. We have been separating them for some time because I didnt want to give him up but if the right home was open to taking him I would feel comfortable letting him go. He has been trained and knows most of the basic commands, sit, down, stay and hes very intelligent. He loves to be outside and swim in the pool so ideally your home would have a yard and a pool but thats not a dealbreaker.
