#9328 Brian Jewers (Hometown Heroes)

Medium-size, Male, Adult German Shepherd Dog,
Brian Jewers (Hometown Heroes) is up-to-date on his shots and has been neutered. He is best in a home without dogs and is best in a home without cats. Brian Jewers (Hometown Heroes) is currently being fostered in Frederick, MD.

My name is Brian Jewers but my foster family calls me BRUNO (means 'male' in German). They say I'm a germ shepherd mix but mom thinks there isn't much "mix" in me because I look and and act just like a GSD. I am a big boy. She says 80 lbs of awesome. And if you scratch behind my ears I will be your friend for life.

Here are some things you should know about me:
I am current on all my shots
I have been neutered
I am about 5-years-old
I am quiet in my crate all night
I have not had even one accident in my foster home
I have very nice leash manners
And I LOVE to go for walks, although I bark at other dogs that pass us, so we cross the street or go in another direction so I can focus on my walk instead of running after dogs.
I travel well in the car
I like all people I meet- kids too, but I can get overly excitable at times, so kids under 7-8 years-old should be supervised (if young kids run in the home, I will chase them, since I like to 'herd' things that run
I have a high prey drive & want to chase cats, squirrels, birds when I see them out the front window or backyard, as well as on walk.
So if you love big dogs and are looking for a very handsome one, I'm your man. Better hurry and get that application in, cause this kind if awesomeness won't last long.
I need strong leader/owner to keep up my good manners. It is important for me to respect you so I will listen better, otherwise I can get mouthy.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

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.
