Are you looking for a young, energetic, handsome German Shepherd to be your best friend, sleep by your bed, and make every minute of your day be the best? Well I am your guy—Jagger is the name and excitement is my game!
Before coming to rescue, I had an injured leg that was not properly cared for. The good doctors decided that amputating my back leg was the best option for me.
They now call me Jagger the Tripod! Is that not the best? Did that slow me down? Oh heck no—I run, a love to fetch and play ball, they say I run like the wind. I will even jump for the ball – I am such a talented tripod! Most people do not realize I only have 1 rear leg until I slow down.
My bad habit is I had some not so nice training done with me when I was younger. It hurt and I learned to lash out – they call it being reactive – if there is something I do not know or do not like. But never fear: the Rescue and magical donors are sending me to boarding school in January. I will be learning clicker training that will help me become a model German Shepherd. My future family will need to know about clicker training or be willing to learn it. I will not be a dog for a family’s first dog because I can be a handful. After school I will be Jagger the Tripod with a diploma!
I have been with a foster home that has been showing me a lot. They are letting me see that learning can be positive. I never go potty in the house, and I do like my crate. I am smart, and I love attention and a challenge so be ready to be involved with me. While I am at school they will also test me around other dogs, kids, cats.
