Captain found himself at a local shelter when he began getting nervous around the toddler in the household. Although Captain never tried to hurt the toddler, the family felt that it was safer for all involved to rehome Captain. Having spent his entire life with his previous family, Captain is a little unsure about all of the sudden changes in his life. 

Captain is a playful, ball driven guy. Having lived in a household his entire life, Captain is housebroken and crate trained. He also knows some basic commands. As is true of most shepherds, Captain can be protective of his people and will need to learn to trust that his new family will set him up for success. Training will be an important part of the bonding process for Captain and his new family. Captain is looking for a forever home that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that be you?


Captain is a smart and playful guy who had the benefit of participating in a board and train program at Stateline Canine. MAGSR is so very grateful to Stateline for all that they have done to help Captain further develop into a good canine citizen. Captain moved directly from his board and train program into a foster home so that he can further develop his skills in a home environment. When he moves into his forever home, Captain will have lifetime access to Stateline Canine for skill refreshers. Captain's foster family adores him. He provides them with endless entertainment and antics. As your typical shepherd, Captain prefers to be with his people at all times and will watch and wait for them if they leave his presence. Housebroken, crate trained, and knowing his basic commands, Captain understands the basic rules of a household but does best with a strong, confident handler. Although Captain could play ball for hours every day, he also enjoys some cuddles. Unaware that he is a big guy, once comfortable, Captain does think he makes the perfect lap dog. That is if you prefer not to feel your thighs for long periods of time. He is also the master of a good face wash and will happily assist you with taking care of any leftover crumbs. Captain is a special guy who is looking for a household that is experienced with the breed. Good with dogs and cats, Captain enjoys the company of other animals particularly when clear expectations are in place. He will meet with greatest success when provided with the structure and leadership that all shepherds crave. If Captain sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet him today.
