Timber – 3 year old male German Shepherd Cross

Timber, a three-year old male German Shepherd Dog Cross, was deserted by his previous owners. They tied him up outside some kennels and left him. Vigil has been looking after him and he is doing extremely well. He seems to be good with people and other dogs, unknown about cats. He is very affectionate, but can be nervous of people he doesn’t know. Timber needs an experienced adult-only home where his training can be continued.

This is what Sarah, his foster mum, said: “I have fostered Timber regularly and know that he is a really affectionate and faithful dog. He is also very obedient, always trying to please. At home, Timber lives downstairs and happily stays there without a stair gate to keep him there. He is fully house trained, does not beg for food, is quiet and happily sleeps during the day when there is nothing going on. He loves his walks, is excellent on and off the lead with very good recall and he is fine with every dog he meets. I have taken him several times on the German Shepherd Dog group walk which he loved, and he behaved impeccably with approx. 20 other dogs, some of whom are dog reactive.

Unlike many German Shepherds, Timber does not need a lot of mental stimulation. He is a perfect dog for someone who lives alone, works from home, wants a dog as a companion and is able to offer him a loving home. But, because he is so faithful and devoted, he does not like being left for long periods and we have crate trained him purely so he can be left in a crate for short periods if necessary. He is also very good in the car. He takes no interest in cats.”
