Fritz A German Shepherd fostered by Four Paws Animal Rescue  Fritz
Over the past week the poor boy has been to the groomers for a well needed scrub and the vets to be neutered and has taken all we have thrown at him - groomers, vets, car journeys, walks on and off-lead, meeting children, cats, and lots of dogs on walks - in his stride! He is a lovely relaxed boy who enjoys playing, walking, running and lots of lying down beside us. This is a short profile of Fritz so far (he has been with us just over a week, so I will be adding to the profile as he settles in).
Training/House Training - very good - no accidents in the house, very clean. Fritz has been on a long lead and then off-lead for a few days - generally his recall is very good (well anything for a piece of cheese), he will return promptly to a whistle almost all the time (only once he kept playing with a dog and ignored me until I walked off and he came running after me). He knows sit and wait commands and walks well on a lead (although this need a little more work as he can pull to see other dogs/interesting smells).
Food - not very patient, he will try to nudge it out of your hands with his big nose - but not in an aggressive way. His bowl can be taken away while eating and he has never shown aggression. He eats with my female dog and they seem fine - although he will bully into her bowl if i don't supervise. Early on there was one dispute over food, but not since then - you can feed them side by side and leave treats in the same room and there are no problems. Fritz will eat anything you give him (and, in fact, anything else that he can reach).
Dogs - Fritz has met and played with male and female dogs off the lead and has been well behaved throughout. He may be overwhelming for some small dogs, given his size, however, he doesn't play too rough or aggressively. I would rehome Fritz with a male or female small/medium size+ dog. Ideally Fritz would go to a home with another dog as he clearly enjoys the company, however, he would settle well in a human only house, if he had opportunities to socialise with other dogs too.
Children - Fritz has met 4 children (approx 7-11yrs) who live locally and was happy to be stroked and talked to, he does sniff and stick his big nose into their hands a lot - looking for food - but this was in a calm and friendly manner - which caused no upset to the children. Due to his size, I would not rehome him with small children.
Other Pets - Fritz has encountered cats (who live next door) and was not too interested in them. The cats have confidently (or stupidly) walked around the garden while he is there - but have not allowed him to get too close. I think he would chase a cat if it was running, but is happy to ignore it otherwise. He has shown interest in livestock and would not trust him to walk off-lead by a field of sheep/cows.
Exercise - Fritz has mostly been on short runs and walks (as he is recently neutred), he is an athletic type - an enthusiatic walker and enjoys running and sniffing about - his walk time will be increased slowly over the next few weeks and I will report back then. I expect he would enjoy an hours walk a day.
OTher - Fritz encountered quad bikers over the weekend and didn't like the noise or movement (went to bite the wheels), so I would be careful with him around bikes - motor, quad or other.
