Si – German Shepherd / Lab Mix at Father John’s Animal House

Come out to Father John’s Animal House in Sparta, New Jersey to meet Si a big handsome and friendly German Shepherd and Black Lab.   Si is an extremely smart dog.  He has mastered many commands, he is housebroken, and he brings the ball right to you for a game of fetch!  Si is definitely big boned and has been steadily slimming down since coming to Father John’s, but still comes in at about 100 pounds.  He is a gentle giant, who sometimes can be cautious with meeting new people.   When a Sedona Shepherd volunteer met Si outside, he bounded up to us with a toy and immediately wanted to be friends.

Si is 7 years old, but he has a lot of energy.  The more time he spends with you the more he wants to play.  Sometimes he forgets how big he is when playing so he would do best with a strong handler.  Although sometimes he can be cautious when new people visit a home, Si, understands going to his place and how to properly greet people.  Si will gladly play with a human with any of his toys.  He can however, be particular about being bothered while eating at his food bowl.

Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary is listing Si as a courtesy to Father John’s Animal House, located in Sparta, NJ.  Si is a great dog who deserves a second chance in a home that has had other dogs before.  Si was never properly socialized with other dogs, so while he is not aggressive towards dogs, his size and over exuberance ends up being misinterpreted by other dogs.  So Si would be best in a home without other dogs.  If you live in Morris, Essex, Sussex, Warren, Union, Somerset, or Hunterdon County, Canine Dimensions will provide two free in-home training sessions for anyone that adopts Si.
