German Shepherd Dog



Jekyll is a sweet and energetic young boy, he does not miss a beat and learns very quickly. He loves to play with his toys and to go on walks. He especially loves his couch time with his foster mommy and daddy.

Update February 2017

Jekyll is absolutely an adorable pup… He loves to sit with you… He adores being adored …. He is ready for adoption… He deserves a very good home. Jekyll is all healed from his hypospadias surgery and ready adoption. He will always be prone to UTIs because of his hypospadias, but that does not stop someone from loving him!

He is getting BIG … He was only 66 pounds last week, but tall… He will eventually fill out. Even though the vet says his eyes are ok, he does not see very well and it is more like his vision is extremely far sighted or tunnel vision..

He is really sweet and loves sitting with you… He is always happy, and a big goof… He tends to be a bit pushy when it comes to food, but not aggressive at all… He steals all the toys, but really just wants to play… Right now he is growing like a weed.

Jekyll was adopted on November 7, 2017.

Latest Updates

  1. Jekyll is all healed from his surgery to correct his hypospadias. He is much more comfortable and enjoying life. Jekyll loves to run around outside with his foster brother and sisters. He is completely housebroken and his re-occurring UTI’s seem to be under control with a cranberry supplement. Jekyll loves to be with the family. At dinner time, he will just lay down with the rest of the pack as we eat dinner. It is adorable to watch Jekyll at their dinner time…he gets so excited when he hears the food going into the bowls that he will run back and for to the different food bowls sampling a bit from each (sort of like Goldilocks and the three bears) before settling in on his bowl. Jekyll is crate trained and travels well in the car. We are still working on his excitement during walks…a work in progress. At TV time, Jekyll just wants to be with you (or on you if he can – 70 pounds of pure love!) Jekyll enjoys playing with his toys both by himself and with his foster sis KoKo. All Jekyll needs now is his fur-ever home!
