Experienced German Shepherd owners only because he has issues that need a person very familiar with the breed. I have had Zeus since he was a puppy. His birthday is April 2nd 2022 he's 1 year and 5 months old. It breaks my heart to have to post this but we have tried everything we can possibly do. We have had him on medications from the vet for separation anxiety. I've tried behavioral training tips I got from a German Shepherd rescue but they aren't working for me. His anxiety is so bad that I'm house bound. He escapes kennels and has tried to bust through our living room windows to get to me when I was outside. Besides his separation anxiety his only other issue is that no matter how much I socialized him as a puppy, he loves family and is a sweetheart but when it comes to strangers, he's scared of them and he will hide behind me even if it's one of my friends he's seen a lot of times. He loves dogs, his breeder had a cat that he would chase sometimes but never tried to hurt him so I'm not sure how he'd be with cats. He likes to jump up and give hugs, he's a big cuddle bug and is around 86 pounds. His dad was 110 and mom was 80 pounds so somewhere in between there is how much he should end up weighing when he's fully grown. If you adopt him there will be a contract stating that you are to NOT breed him and that you will neuter him by the time he turns 2. I had plans on getting him neutered when he turns 2 so that he can have all his essential hormones to grow properly. If you adopt him I'd really appreciate updates and pictures. Before adopting him I'll need to talk to your vet and do a virtual home check if you don't live close to me for his safety so I know the environment my fur baby is going to be in. I'm not in a hurry I want what is best for him.
