Good with dogs
Good with kids

Santa is a 1 year old GSD. He came into our rescue with another large breed dog. He is very people and dog friendly. From the moment we met him he has been super friendly. He really just likes his people. He seems to get along with big and small dogs as he lived with them in his foster home. He is playful without being over the top. He seems to be an "old soul" in a young body because he's not overly active and crazy as one would expect with a GSD.

Santa is a bit cautious in new situations. It was painfully obvious that he had not been inside a home previously as he was unsure of walking on certain surfaces, would flinch with noises, wasn't accustomed to household items like TV's, vacuums, etc. But with great foster homes willing to be patient and kind he was slowly introduced and is learning to adjust to all the new sites and sounds.

Santa is not a big barker. He certainly will offer a bark when appropriate and his deep bark will scare off anyone who isn't wanted. However friends and family will be welcomed with a big tail wag and maybe even a quick kiss.

Santa is only an option for a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. If there are kids in the home they need to be 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.
