ADOPTED 02-20-13 – If you need a guard dog who’ll bark if he senses trouble but who’ll also curl up on the couch with you, Shadow’s your man. Shadow is a little puppy in a big dog’s body. While he looks fierce, he allows kids, other dogs and people of every type come right up to him. And he’ll quiet down with a simple command if he has started barking. He is a love once you get a chance to pet him and spend a few minutes with him. Give him a dog treat and he’ll be your friend for life.
He is a big guy, but lean. He’s only about 68 pounds. He’s a case of an owner losing their job and no longer being able to take care of him. It appears he has missed many meals and could use to add a few pounds. Shadow has a German Shepherd body with a black Lab’s face. Very handsome. And don’t let his greying face fool you. He’s only four years old and has tons of spunk.
Shadow will come to your home already neutered, with all his shots, and ready to play. He constantly searches for toys to carry around. It’s sweet to see this big guy gently carrying around a stuffed animal. He needs some training on a leash because he gets excited to search out new adventures and pulls. But even an 11 or 12 year old child could walk him without a problem. And if you have the time to spend with him, he will learn obedience commands. He is very smart.
A family who welcomes Shadow into their home will need a fenced in yard or an understanding that he needs exercise. While he is content to go into his crate, he shouldn’t be kept there for long periods. He needs to stretch his legs and run around. He’d be perfect in an enclosed yard with another dog or two to play with. Just feed him separately, as he is obsessed with food.

Shadow is not a little fluff ball to carry in a purse. He’s a dog’s dog. He will go hunting, camping and fishing with you, happily hop in the car for a ride to the store, or gladly walk into town with you and greet everyone he meets.
