Hi there! My name given to me by the shelter is Weasel, but my foster family calls me Willie! I am a fun loving 4-year-old GSP. I am about 52 lbs, but I'm needing to fatten up a bit more because I was extremely thin when I was taken into rescue. I have lots of energy and LOVE to play, especially fetch with the tennis ball. I've never been around cats, but my hunting instincts are pretty high. I point a lot, quite perfectly actually, and I have interest in everything from birds, to squirrels, and even insects. I am great with other dogs and also great with kids... although if I am fetching and too focused on the ball, I may run into someone... Did I mention I LOVE to fetch? I love to be around my people so I am going to need a family that will let me snuggle in bed. I like to be close and give kisses when I wake up in the morning.
I respond extremely well to "Willie" and know basic commands like sit, shake, and down. I am not much of a jumper and I am potty trained, which are big pluses. I do very well walking with my gentle leader but I am not too bad with just a good old fashioned leash and a collar either. I do well in the crate I just like to have my blanket to snuggle and chew on, I love blankets. I like to have a large yard to run my energy out in like most GSPs but once I get some running in, I am pretty mellow and low maintenance in the house. Although I am goofy and love to play, in the house I tend to just lay down and sleep, maybe chew on a bone... I may place my big head in your lap to get some pets in. I have been seen climbing the fence outside a time or two, so the taller the fence the better for me, but I have worked with an e-collar and have done well since then about not climbing. I could probably use a little more training so I need a family who is willing to work with me more, but I will make anyone a very happy companion as I am loyal and very loving.
If you're interested in adopting me, please fill out an adoption application if you haven't already and email my foster mom, Allie at email@example.com .
Since I am a neutered, fully vetted, and temperament tested GSP my adoption fee is $375.

Good day lads and ladies!
A little about myself. I'm an energetic sort of gentleman, who likes nothing more than a good ol' chipmunk chase to start my day.
The first thing people usually notice about me is my friendly personality, closely followed by my wiggly butt. I am not one of those fake pups who pretends not to notice their own qualities. My soft fur and beautiful eyes really are top notch. These gems of honesty are just part of the genuine pup I am.
While I'm in a happy place right now, I'm ready to find my lifelong crew. I assure you that I bring more than good looks to the table. I've got some decent "sit" and "stay" skills and am taking lessons on "shake" at the moment.
If you're the right match for me, you'll be loving and attentive and appreciate a happy but sensitive soul. Ideally, you'll have a backyard and another medium-sized pup for me to hang with. I haven't been on the scene much but I'd probably be down to hang out with the younger hoomans out there too if you're into that.
My ideal date would involve playing with others outside having a little chicken jerky and a nap in the sun. While we're together be warned I'm going to want to lick your face and maybe give you a nibble. I'll miss you while you're gone but will probably take a nap in a crate if you'll let me. And you know I'll be really happy to see you come back. That's just the kind of loyal and trusting guy I am.
If you think we could be kindred spirits, please fill out an adoption application (if you haven't already) and email my foster Mom Asher at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to sniffing you soon.
And don't forget I'm not a cheap date either. Because I'm fully vetted and temperament tested my adoption fee is $375.
