Introducing Albert, a flashy, handsome young Shepherd mix and all around cool dude.

Once you get beyond his youth and good looks, Albert seems cool and collected beyond his young age. Almost a bit Zen. He likes going for long walks and exploring and sniffing the world. Taking it all in, but never getting too excited about anything. Dogs, cats, chickens, children, they're all just scenery in the world he wants to explore. Finding something he really wants to smell is just about the only thing that will break his cool demeanor.

Back at home, Albert is always excited to see you come home, but never enough to jump on you. He will check in on you, wants to know what you're up to and what's going on, but will quickly return to his dog bed for an endless nap.

Albert has some interest in toys. He loved a red ball and would chase it around the house, but eventually grew bored. Toys are a moment to see glimpses of his playful side that will probably show itself more as he becomes comfortable in his new home.

Around the house Albert is well mannered and seems to be fully house trained once he is settled in.

Playtime and training are activities that would be interesting to explore with Albert. He is definitely led by his nose and could be better mannered on a leash. So far he seems indifferent to commands, except maybe "sit. With just a little training he could become a real gent.

With Albert you have an easy going young man who seems ready for his next phase of learning and development. Do you have room in your heart and a place in your home for the dashing young Albert? Come meet Albert today!
