ADOPTED ON 10-11-14 – From a rescue perspective I generally do not like to go into detail about how badly abused the dogs are when we rescue them but in Jonahs case I will make an exception. By describing the treatment dealt out to Jonah I hope to reveal the magnificent depth of character of this wonderful dog. Jonah came to us with an embedded collar that had to be surgically removed, he weighed 58 pounds where he should have weighed 100 pounds, both ears were infected, he had almost every parasite known to man, he had multiple open lesions, he had skin issues and he had been heavy handed but when I knelt down and held out my hand he came to me, I held him and cried (I am a retired special forces soldier) for a very long time. Since that day our boy has never looked back embracing life with a gusto that only comes from looking into the abyss and not just surviving but shaking your fist a the specter. Jonah is not just a survivor, he is a winner, never once since we met has he ever failed to meet the challenges presented to him instead he has relished the opportunity. To date we have been able to make this boy healthy, improve his weight, get him to trust and above all else just make him happy. Jonah has pretty much turned into a Velcro dog, wanting nothing more than to be with his people and his canine buddies. At this point I am not sure who has gotten the most out this experience but I can truly say that feel blessed to have been a part of it all.
NEUTERED***SABLE COAT***FULLY VETTED***GREAT WITH PEOPLE AND DOGS***LEASH, HOUSE AND BASIC COMMAND TRAINED
As might be expected our boy Jonah simply blew away the standard in our training and socialization programs, he has established a new bar. Jonah is very good with people, other dogs and social activities. At this point Jonah is reached a level where he is a very honorable representation of the German shepherd breed, I truly unimaginable feat. Of course Jonah is great on the leash, he is house broken and he has full command of his basic commands. Simply stated, Jonah is unequalled.
