Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler x German Shepherd Dog
4 years old - Short coat - Male

Silas is a 4 year old who weighs 64lbs. He is a big guy with an amazingly sweet heart. He is gentle and good natured. He is very loving towards his people. He was found one day when it was in the 100's and he was over-heated and lying on the side of the road. We poured water on him, got his feet in cool water, gave him water and finally got him in the car to get him to the vet. Luckily he was ok.

Silas wants to be with his people. He is not an outside dog. He goes outside, wants to do his business and then is sitting on the porch just waiting to be let in a few minutes later. He hates being left by himself outside. He wants to be around and in the vicinity of his people. He is a velcro type of dog. He's an excellent candidate for going hiking or on long walks. His very presence will be imposing to people but his secret is he's incredibly gentle and kind. But for those who want the big dog that may make people think twice before trying to do harm, well, he's a great candidate.

Silas is good with other dogs. He's been around big and little dogs. He doesn't really care about them. It's about his people. He'd rather just hang out with them.

Silas is an option for kids who are over the age of 8.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
