Goliath – A German Shepherd Gentle Giant

Goliath is a big boy full of love and affection. We have nicknamed him the “Gentle Giant” because despite his size, Goliath is truly gentle. Goliath nuzzles up to new friends and is ready to give kisses in exchange for some nice ‘scratchers’ behind the ears. Goliath was found as a stray in southern New Jersey. He is well mannered, trust worthy in a home and friendly with everyone that he meets.

When we brought Goliath to our vet, he was easy to handle and allowed our vet to poke and prod. Goliath came to us with very infected ears and an undiagnosed skin condition. His ears were so gunky that we had to sedate him before being able to really clean out the ears. We are awaiting results of testing on his skin.

Goliath has spent time around other dogs in a play setting and even in a short foster home setting. He would most likely do well in a home with another dog with proper introductions. We do not know how he would be with cats. Best estimates put Goliath at about 7 to 8 years old. He is neutered.
