Champ is a long haired, very active and friendly 6 year-old German Shepherd. He is smart, friendly, loves to play or just chill and hang out. Prior to entering our foster program Champ has lived with two very active boy. He loves playing fetch with a ball, a Frisbee, any toy will do.

In general Champ is fine around other friendly, non-reactive dogs. However, Champ is a big excitable boy so he may spook smaller dogs. While Champ is in good health, and he is neutered, he does have EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which is easily managed. Champ requires a special powder mixed and soaked into his food 20 minutes prior to eating.

Champ would do well with an active family. He does prefer carpets to slippery smooth surfaces, and takes a little while to get comfortable on hardwood floors.  So he will need a home with at least some carpeting.  And if you can’t tell from the pictures, he is a very handsome boy.
