Prince is a stunning German Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix, who was born 10/26/10. His family had him since he was about 8 weeks old, but never had time to train him or give him the attention he deserves. Prince is now looking for a new forever home, where he can “start over” with patient, affectionate people who will have lots of time for him.

Prince is smart – he does already know “sit”. He is also extremely excitable and energetic – so sometimes, even though he knows “sit,” he can’t quite calm down enough to do so. He does pretty well on leash, once you get him to sit down long enough to get the leash on (ha). He loves everyone he meets, and is interested in playing with the other dogs at the shelter.

We think Prince is going to be a large dog – he already weighs about 50 pounds, and he’s only 5 months old! Big, big paws.

Prince’s ideal home will have someone who will get to spend lots of time with him, working off his happy puppy energy and channeling his focus into some serious training. Prince is not the sort of dog who would enjoy long stretches of alone time; he wants to be a full member of the family, and is eager to learn. He’ll repay you with many wonderful years of loyalty and adoration!
