Hey there, I'm Keyser, an 6-8 year old German Shepherd at OOAKP. There's more to me than my looks! I am a very loyal dog that is devoted to his family. I was in foster care for a time, and if I wasn't so big they would have kept me. I do not act my “suggested” age... I'm playful and enjoy long walks. I'm the kind of guy that if you let me "walk all over you" then I will, but if I have someone that is calm and won't let me be out of control then I am very good on a leash. I would love to have a big yard to play in with my new family in - as I do have a lot of energy! I have made a decision that I do not like other dogs, but I do great with cats and children. However, remember that when you bring an adopted dog home you should never leave them alone without being restricted to a certain area until you get to know the each other better. This helps prevent an accident or an unfortunate situation from happening that a dog wouldn't have done without the stress of being in a new environment. Everyone talks about how smart I am... in fact in my room at the shelter, I figured out how to turn the latch and open the door! One night I set the alarm off and the police came! They called management and told them "everything's fine, you just have a big German shepherd running around." That was a fun night! I need a dog-savvy person who's only looking to love one dog for now. Come meet this big boy today!
