#8299 Big Man Kosovo

Adoptable
Large-size, Male, Adult Shepherd,

I am one lucky dog! I was saved from the streets of Kosovo And some lovely people sent me to the USA to find a family to love me!

I am estimated to be a 6 years old Burmese mountain dog mix. I have long thick fur that is soft and shiny! I have a large head and huge paws but I only weigh 60 lbs. I’ve gotten along well with all the dogs I’ve met. I’m doing pretty well learning to walk on a leash and I like walking with a harness. I’m am strong and sometimes I pull hard on my leash but not always. I know sit, laydown and sometimes I’ll even give you my paw if you ask for it. I would do best in a single family home in a suburban or rural setting with a yard to run in. I can jump really high so I need a fence 6 ft tall to keep me secure.

I haven’t had any potty accidents inside. I have a big bark and will let you know when I want to go outside, come inside or when someone is coming to the door. I’m quiet most of the time and only make noise to communicate with my humans. I like nylabones and plush toys.

I have done ok with the children I have met but when I get excited there is no stopping me so I'd do best in a home without small children as I may knock them down.

I am a sensitive guy and I mimic the energy around me. In a high energy environment I am very excited and outgoing, when I am around calm and happy people I am very relaxed. I did well as a street dog because I am very smart so I will need a home that can be adapted to keep me safe. I can open some doors and baby gates and have the ability to jump.

Apply to adopt me today! I won’t be available for long!

Big Man Kosovo is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. He is best in a home without small children. Big Man Kosovo is currently being fostered in Hanover, PA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
