Obi is a 5 year old male German Shepherd cross Malamute. Poor Obi was rehomed from us in February and after only 3 short months in his new home he has now found himself back at square one as his new owner is expecting a baby. He originally came to us following a relationship breakdown but did not stay here for long before he was adopted. We are devastated for all of the upheaval this beautiful, loyal boy has endured and are desperate to find him some consistency in a home with someone who will be committed to him for the rest of his life.
Although he is crossed with a Malamute, he is primarily German Shepherd but very large in size! Obi is a beautiful dog, he is typical of the breed in that he can be a little unsure of new people initially but he quickly makes friends. He loves a good fuss and likes to jump up and give kisses! He also loves to play fetch. He does not like postmen, delivery drivers or fireworks. Although Obi is a friendly boy, like most dogs he becomes nervous at the vets and for this reason will need to wear a muzzle while being examined. He is not bothered by this and is okay with having a muzzle put on. He has lived with dogs in the past but can be reactive to them while on the lead. Therefore he will need a strong and sensible owner. His previous owner feels that despite his reactivity on the lead, he could live with a compatible dog in his new home. He cannot live with cats.
Obi is very well behaved in the home and is happy to be left for a few hours. He is clean, quiet and non destructive, and spends most of the time sleeping. He also travels well in the car. He has never been around young children so will need an adult only home. This boy will make a fabulous, loyal friend.
