Hi, I'm Lionel, a gorgeous and smart German Shepherd mix. I'm 1 year 6 months old, 47 pounds, and brown and black in color. I'm looking for my forever home where I can be your loyal and fun companion. I'm a gentle and loving boy who loves to play fetch, run, and dig and roll in the mud. I'm house trained and know how to sit. I love treats, especially peanut butter, and milk bone dog biscuits. I love to play with tennis balls and sticks. I'm good with children 7 and older, but I haven't played with younger ones. I'm friendly with other dogs, but I bark and get excited when I see them. I need to work on that. I haven't been cat tested, but I can be. I'm an adventurous and energetic boy who needs a place where I can run and play or go walking daily. I'm very smart and can be trained very easily. I respond to corrections well. I'm an escape artist, though, so I need a fenced yard to play in. I don't like the crate; it stresses me out. But I do better in large kennels. I'm very loyal and love to sit at your feet or right beside you. I have this sweet lean I do when I trust you. I'm a big goofball who loves all the attention I can get. I nip a little when I get excited, but that is common for my breed and I'm working on breaking this habit. I don't like baths, but I don't give you a lot of trouble. I love all the belly rubs and head scratches. I'm neutered, fully vaccinated, and heartworm negative, so I'm healthy and happy. I'm a survivor who was surrendered to Memphis Animal Shelter and at risk of euthanasia. I'm so grateful for the chance to find a loving home, and I want to share it with you. I'm currently in Burkesville, KY, but I can be transported out of state to meet you if you're the one for me. If you are interested in adopting me, please contact my rescue. I can't wait to meet you!
