"SAWYER" happy update!!

May 2018 - Happy Adoption Update Sawyer!

"Sawyer passed his drug-detection K-9 training at the top of his class, and now has the perfect job for his energy and skills! Sawyer came to our shelter in June 2017, and we knew his high energy and focus would require daily work and stimulation. After several attempted adoptions, Sawyer received the opportunity for K-9 training with our friends at Washington State Department of Corrections, and is now serving with Benton County, WA Sheriff's Office."

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!! My name is Fuzz Lightyear, a 4 month old German Shepherd that weighs 37 lbs. You could call me the hands-on type but since I do not have hands I learn with my mouth. To an exuberant dog like me everything is a game, sometimes I just get so excited I will jump up and grab the first thing that looks like a toy. I am up for anything and ready to amaze my new family with my skills. I am looking for a family who does not take life too seriously that will be patient, positive and lift me to my potential of being a perfect pup! I think working with a trainer would be beneficial and we could bond! Since I am so jumpy and mouthy, it would be best for me to go home with kids 5 and older. THERE WILL BE A SIGN UP SHEET AT THE FRONT DOORS OF THE SHELTER AT 9:30 AM FOR ME 6/11/18 - MY ADOPTION WILL BE ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS. Ask to meet me today!'

I've been a little more fearful here in the shelter, and would love to have a family that will show me that the world and the things and people in it are not scary!

I will go for a run in the morning, a hike in the afternoon, play fetch in the evening, and unwind with some play at home before bed - and I would love nothing more than to have someone who can keep up with me. It is important that I have an outlet for my boundless energy, so let us get together and explore the outdoors! I will need an active home that can keep me both mentally and physically stimulated. Seeking a reward based trainer for us will be a great way to get us started on the right paw. If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 15 years due to my physical play style.
