My name is Wolfgang and I am a low-key, friendly gent! Though I may be a little shy at first, I am aching to make friends with someone, someone I can love forever! At my age, I should not be in a shelter – I should be enjoying the good life, with nice walks and easy summer afternoons curled up with my family!  I am very scared and unsettled in the shelter environment but making a connection with a human has really helped.  My true self will likely bloom once in my forever home. I don't care much for toys. Due to my age and physical limitations, I may be more comfortable in an adult-only household.  I tolerate most types of handling, though I am particularly uncomfortable with paw handling, and no doubt a bit painful, too, and so I shy away from them being fussed with. I was so unsettled during my behavior evaluation that I couldn’t really eat so I couldn’t be evaluated for resource guarding.
Though I may get a little shy with unusual new people (limping, hooded, …), if given a little time, I will make friends with them.  Patient introductions with people who concern me, with them giving me treats, will help me get more comfortable with them.  I look to my human companion for direction.
Though I’m not particularly playful with other dogs, I like to make their acquaintance and will enjoy their polite company. 
I don't know any basic commands but heck!  I may do just about anything for you once you’re my person! I am proud to say that I walk nicely on the leash!  A bit of training will help us forge a relationship.

2 Year Old Male Mixed Breed
Looks like Labrador X Great Dane Cross
Case# 8368

Behavior  – Color Level: Yellow
(Strong Handler)
Strangers: fear
Kids: adult only
Pulls / Jumps / Mouthy / Leash Biting / Other:

Dogs: no dogs
Leash reactive:
Hand shy:
Prey drive:

My name is Emmett and I am a handsome, playful dude! Though I may be a little shy at first, once I make friends with someone, I love them forever! I like playing with people and simply love toys!  Due to my shyness, I would be best in an adult-only household. I’m a little uncomfortable with some handling (paws) but will tolerate it.  I am intense around my food, but I do not guard them.
I get a little scared of unusual new things and people, and I may woof at them to keep them at bay.  I look to my human companion for direction.  My adopters should seek a certified professional trainer who can help me accept new experiences that concern me so that I can get more comfortable with them. 
I’m not good with other dogs and should be kept away from them.
I have already had some training (sit, down, stay, come, …) and am eager to learn more for a taste of my favorite treats!  One thing I definitely need to learn is to walk nicely on leash! Training may help build my confidence and will help us forge a relationship.
