I am a smallish shepherd mix with a beautiful dark coat and, they say, almost impeccable manners. I have a few quirks, of course, like wanting to dig under fences so I can go exploring, but I am kennel-trained and respond well to sit, heel, down, and stay. I’ve gotten along great with kids and been gentle with them, even the really little ones. They say I get along with most dogs—as long as they don’t try to take away my bones, that is. But who would like that, right? Cats are okay, too (they don’t want my bones!). I am only 18 months old so I still have lots of energy and would like to live with someone who has a big place or who will take me places where I can run.
