#8425 Lion King

Medium-size, Male, Senior English Shepherd,
Energy Level 2

Energy Level 2 - Likes to go for short walks but mostly is a lounger. Does not require much interactive play.

Hey there! My name is Lion King AKA Louie. I am 100% an English Shepherd guessed to be about 8 years old and around 61lbs.

♡ I am 100% potty-trained. I will whine to let you know I want to go out.

 ♡ I have spectacular house manners. I will wait for your permission before jumping up on the couch and I learn rules quickly.

♡ I don’t try to steal human food. (But I will stare at you with my sad puppy eyes until you sneak me a piece under the table).

♡ I’m a gentle-giant. I am SUPER polite with cats and other dogs. I understand social cues well.

♡ I’m a total velcro dog to my chosen person. I LOVE to be around people so I’d like a family where someone is home all-day.

♡ I’m relatively low-energy. I don’t need long walks to thrive - quality time and affection is most important to me.

♡ I am the BIGGEST snuggle-bug you will ever meet. I lean my head into your hand when I want more head rubs and lay my head on your lap when I’m sleepy.

♡ I will need a home with a fenced yard. I get shy going ‘number 2’ on walks.

♡ Forget the doorbell - I will personally alert you to someone at the door.

♡ I love treats so therefore - I love training! I'm very smart. I know basic commands like “sit, lie down, stay, come, and move”. I want more than anything to be the best dog ever.

♡ Big/loud/strange men sometimes scare me. Mom gives me lots of treats so that I feel safe when meeting these types of men.

♡ I always have a big smile plastered on my face. I’m just a happy, gentle, 61lbs teddy bear with an endless amount of love to give.

Lion King He is best in a home without small children. Lion King is currently being fostered in Woodbridge, VA.

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 Ashland, VA 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 Ashland.

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.
