#7303 Luka

Adoptable
Medium-size, Male, Adult Shepherd,
Luka is up-to-date on his shots and has been neutered. He is best in a home without cats and is best in a home without small children. Luka is currently being fostered in Columbia, MD.

Luka is young, athletic and energetic (as you can see by clicking here), and would be a great hiking/running companion for a calm and controlled handler. He's a handsome 2-year-old, medium sized boy at approximately 42 pounds and appears to be a Shepherd mix . He is quite a looker with his amazing signature curly tail. Luka is very smart, housebroken in his current environment and obeys, without fail, his trainer's commands to COME and STOP. Luka is playful and enjoys tug of war, fetch and chewing on bones. And he sure loves a good treat!

Luka's ideal home environment is a fenced yard with a CONFIDENT, EXPERIENCED HANDLER who understands Luka's NEED for a STRONG LEADER. Luka's needs are simple. A safe place to run and a strong leader who thoroughly understands that reinforcing the basic commands of COME and STOP keep Luka safe. Luka is loyal and attaches to and is protective of his handler. Luka deserves an owner who will also be his loyal protector. His adopter must follow time tested shutdown procedures until trust is established. Luka would also be a good match for someone employed as a dog trainer This boy has a whole lotta love to give.

As for children, older dog savvy children would be best. As for other dogs, Luka is his best self with dogs who are balanced and well mannered and not submissive. Otherwise, Luka is quite happy to be your only dog. His trainer says he's a good boy and loves people! Luka has been trained on an electronic collar, as well as off leash. Is Luka your ideal match?

Luka is a deserving dog that is eligible for an extended trial adoption. We know how special he is and want to give adopters the chance to get to know this wonderful dog.
