Introducing Atticus, a handsome, house-trained German Shepherd gentleman! Atticus is just a big guy looking for the perfect home. If you are looking for the perfect older adventure buddy Atticus is your man!

Atticus is fine left on his own while you are out and about running your errands. He is not destructive and does not cry. He just sleeps the day away while his foster is gone. His foster can see him on camera and knows how good he is.

He walks well on the leash and is very food motivated. He will make an excellent trail or hiking buddy. He is eager to please and walks along nicely by your side!

Atticus is a real cuddle bug! He's always laying near his foster and will cuddle? He often comes up for pets!

Atticus enjoys meeting new people. He is very chill and sweet around them. Atticus loves walks and laying in the sun, otherwise he's a couch potato. Perfect for someone wanting a low maintenance, well trained companion!

Atticus will fit well in almost any home. He is a mellow easygoing guy! Do you have room in your heart and a place in your home for the sweet, happy-go-lucky, low key Atticus? Come meet Atticus today!
Come meet your new best friend
