[IMPORTANT] Please read the full profile and don't send message to ask us why are we giving him away, is he a good guard dog etc. If you even bother to read his full profile, you would know we are merely his fosterer and his behavior is described below.
[For Adoption] We are fostering Orion the German Shepherd (male) is 6YO (DOB: 1 April, 2016) after he was given up by ex-owner. He is healthy (full blood test done on Sep 15, 2022) and was neutered on Oct 10, 2022. He is on heartworm prevention and tick prevention. Thankfully, no joint issues.
Orion was confined in basement for 6 years by ex-owner. He was not walked and not socialized. He seems to bark angrily at strangers outside his play pen/ crate but once he is out, he walks well with an experienced handler. He tried to bite his ex-owner (a man) so caution should be exercised in gaining his trust. He is NOT friendly with strangers, especially men, and has bitten men before.
He does not bark at dogs but he is NOT friendly with dogs. His ex-owner decided to give up on him after 6 years and almost return him to his breeders to use him. The ex-owner starved him to keep him underweight as their breeder told them to do so. We were told Orion hated his breeder (they used to send him to board with his breeder and he returned with skin issue). We suspect his breeder mistreated him as well. They failed him.
We are currently fostering him from Sep 8, 2022 until he finds a good home. He was only 26kg on Sep 8. We are feeding him more (he needs to gain another 6 to 8kg at least). He was 32.9kg on Oct 10 and approximately 35kg now.
It is best if he goes to a home with experienced handler. He is high energy and must be exercised daily. We now jog with him daily (about 2 to 3km a day). He is very friendly with female handler and is very affectionate towards people he trusts. He is also a good guard dog. He also has high prey drive and will chase after moving smaller animals (including small dogs, cats, squirrel, etc.).
