Mitchell German Shepherd Dog Young Male in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

My story
Oh where do we start with Mitchell – the boy with a heart of gold, ears that live their own life, and a weirdness you can only fully appreciate when you meet him. Mitchell has been in his foster home since the day he was born. He has always been a little different, and a very vocal boy – like all shepherds strive to be.

Mitchell is a year old, weighs around 60 pounds, is neutered, up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations and preventatives, heart-worm negative, and micro-chipped!

Mitchell’s foster mom likes to joke that he is a rare silver shepherd – hey they really do exist! We have no way to know what breed this unique boy is for sure, but he really does look like a shepherd, sound like a shepherd, and behave like a shepherd. If you have experience with shepherds, you fully understand. You also understand their personalities and how they can be a little “special”, shall we

say. He wants to be worried about the world, while also being a social butterfly –

an interesting combination for sure! Mitchell does get nervous with new things, but as his confidence continues to grow, we know that nervousness will get less and less.

Mitchell loves other dogs and his personality has really taken off with strangers too. He has a couple of best friend foster siblings that he enjoys playing with. Mitchell is house and kennel trained. He will need a home with a routine and patience as he works on leash training and just overall learning how the world works.

He was born with bad hips and had surgeries to get him all fixed up. He’s still trying to learn that his hips are fixed, so he walks a little odd, but that just goes with his personality! Mitchell will be a good sized dog, so he will benefit from some joint supplements as he ages. He may never be a super high energy guy, but more of a couch potato, hang out with his humans kind of guy. Mitchell wants to be a house dog, a true family companion, and would do best in a lower-key home. Staying active throughout his life will help him, but he won’t ever be a marathoner!
