Thunder with Sedona Shepherd

Thunder – A Classically Handsome Male German Shepherd

Children: Good with older children
Dogs: Social but best in no dog household
Cats: No
Fenced Yard: Preferred Not Required
Experience: Must have prior big dog or GSD Experience

You will truly be “Thunderstruck” when you meet this big boy.  Thunder is exactly what you would expect in a well-bred German Shepherd.   With his classic looks, he could be on the cover of any German Shepherd book.

Thunder isn’t just a handsome face.  He is extremely intelligent, friendly, and enjoys playing.  Thunder recently turned 5 years old and is in the prime of his life.  Thunder is well socialized, having lived with 5 children of various ages and spending time with human friends.

Currently in our owner referral program, Thunder’s owner is looking for loving and German Shepherd experienced family for Thunder.   He is a very big, about 100 pounds and sometimes can jump too much when excited, so he would best with a home with children over 7, just so he doesn’t accidentally knock the young ones down.

Thunder walks well on a leash and has had some basic obedience training.  He has also been trained on an e-collar for an electric fence.   Thunder tends to ignore other dogs on walks, though based on his size would probably do best in a home without other animals.

Since Thunder is still intact, we will be adopting him out on a neuter contract, where the adopter will agree to have Thunder neutered.  There will be a $150 REFUNDABLE deposit with the contract.  Thunder is still with his owner located in the Lehigh Valley area, so logistics may play a role in matching up with suitable adopters.

If you are interested in finding out more about Thunder, including the possibility of being part of our foster to adopt program please email us at or fill out an adoption application.

About Sedona Shepherd

Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary is a rescue dedicated to finding homes for adult and senior German Shepherds throughout New Jersey and surrounding areas.  In addition to rescuing German Shepherds, when space allows us, we rescue dogs that are at a high risk of being euthanized at a shelter or a home environment, that might not necessarily be a German Shepherd or mix.
