Description

Sirius and another male were picked up by animal control when they were found showing too much interest in a female dog in heat running loose. Although Sirius waited for his family to reclaim him, no one came to bring him home. Sirius quickly became a shelter staff favorite. Recognizing that Sirius would have his best chance at finding a forever home outside of the shelter, he was transferred to MAGSR. 

Sirius is a sweet dog who can be a little timid with new people. When given the opportunity to warm up Sirius enjoys the company of his people. Clearly having been on leash before, Sirius seems to understand some leash manners already. When introduced to dogs at the shelter, Sirius did well particularly, with the females. He even kept his cool when one of them was having a rough day. As a young dog, Sirius will thrive in a home that provides him with structure and routine. Training will go a long way with this boy as it will not only help him bond with his new family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. Sirius will do well in a more experienced household that can provide him with the leadership that he craves. If Sirius sounds like the right match for your household, please ask him today. 

Updates

Sirius is a very sweet and loving boy. He enjoys belly rubs and is working on perfecting his "shepherd lean". When I am home, I allow Sirius to free roam the house.  He is always close by, but not right on top of you. He enjoys lounging around the house (probably a good thing as he recovers from heart worms). He does very well on leash, he is housebroken and crate trained. He is very friendly with new people and approaches them without hesitation and a wagging tail. He does not show aggression towards other dogs we pass while walking for potty breaks.

Sirius does get nervous and shows anxiety when left at home alone, his foster is working with him to learn to be confident and comfortable.   If you are looking for a best friend that just wants to be with his humans, please reach out to meet this handsome guy.
