Small country dog with big city name! Meet the intensely handsome and super wagging tailed fellow, Dallas. Now, Dallas will have you at “hello.” This sweet, very affectionate shepherd is solid in his frame and his desire to make you smile! A bit shy when he first meets you, simply sit down by his side, ignore him, and then let him make the first move. Sounds a bit like a first date, huh? Well in some respects it just might be but it works! In no time, his body will be wiggling and jiggling and he’ll be looking for a belly rub and a gentle walk on the leash. Good with other dogs, Dallas is a strong playmate so he’ll need a more sturdy dog to share his playpen with as he bows down to start a game of wrestling and running and chasing. Dallas craves attention so be prepared to have a pet who will want to climb up into your lap and follow you around. He aims to be your second shadow and can’t wait to fill that role.
Dallas was adopted out from us and returned as one of the several dogs in his home was getting on his nerves and Dallas was getting on this pet’s nerves. Dallas was in this home for 2 years and was great with the other family pets including cats! This one particular dog has more of a reputation for getting persnickety so we feel Dallas will be fine in another new home stocking welcoming pets!
Medical Info: Dallas is a happy, healthy dog. When he arrived as a stray at the high kill shelter, he had a gimp front paw. It was not clear if he had stepped on something to cause the raging infection he had causing the limp. Several surgeries later and the vets have not been able to really pin-point the cause of his front gimp leg as a result, so we chose to have his front leg removed. The poor guy had endured so many surgeries and there was no real end in sight. Since his successful surgery, Dallas has even more pep and feel good energy about him. He’s getting along like the champ we always knew he was!
