Kolby is a stunning 5 y/o black German Shepherd Dog who needs to be re-homed. He is not adjusting well to the new and small humans that have come into his life in the past two years so a family with no small children is much preferred.

A perfect home would be with a family with strong GSD experience and knows how to provide both physical and mental exercises to keep Kolby happy as he comes from working-line GSDs

With proper introductions, he may get along with other dogs – most likely females and smaller than him.  He weighs 75 lbs.

He typically crates for up to 8 hours per day but likes to sleep near his humans at night.

He loves to play fetch and knows many commands.  He is crate trained, house-trained, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, HW-negative and is AKC registered.

Please note:  Kolby is currently in Michigan, but it is possible to transport him to the Oconomowoc area for a meet and greet.   A donation to NorthStar WI will be requested upon the successful adoption on this sweet boy!
