MERRY CHRISTMAS HUNTER!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO HUNTER AND HIS NEW FAMILY!!!! This sweet shy boy wish came true when he was adopted just before Christmas <3 Hunter is now HOME <3
**** HUBBA BUBBA ALERT **** This handsome derpy hunk is AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!!
Hunter made the journey to his PNW Foster home a few weeks ago. This boy is a goofball who would LOVE a home to call his own for the holidays
Hunter is approximately 1.5 years old and is an all black neutered male GSD. He is crate-trained and housebroken. Hunter is microchipped, up to date on his vaccines and is heartworm negative (on prevention).
Hunter has exhibited the ability to get along with med-large dogs. We do not know if Hunter likes small dogs or cats. He walks on a leash, though does need some additional guidance and training. He is a bit shy with new people, but does warm up and lets his goofy side come out quite quickly
He has fairly low level activity wise (for a German Shepherd). He does load up in a crate in a car well, but is still getting his “car legs” (sometimes he has to apologize for getting car sick). This boy is such a LOVE!!

The Rescue Journey begins…
Hunter was picked up as a stray and taken to City of Stockton Animal Shelter on 06/22/2022. He was held for 3 days on stray wait with a possible owner. Young, scared and in a shelter that is constantly full, he kept to himself and shied away from people – all strangers to him – who could blame him. Hunter developed kennel cough and was treated at the shelter. Over the next few days, Hunter began to open up a little and show his true goofy self. For two months, he sat in the shelter; waiting for an owner, an adopter or rescue; Hunter waited for a miracle.
On 08/22/2022, On the “time is up list”, Hunter walked out of the shelter and into Shepherds Without Borders rescue with hope for the future. He went to a foster home and began his rescue journey. SAFE – Hunter was then scheduled for his neuter and completion of vet care.
