Trucker is a 4 year old, 40 lb Shepherd/Terrier mix. He is so cute with his scruffy face, and he is the perfect medium sized dog. We don't know what happened in his past, but it couldn't have been very good. Trucker loves his foster mom. He is her shadow and follows her everywhere, and prefers to cuddle with her during TV time, but it was a lot different with foster dad. He has warmed up to foster dad now, but it took weeks of patience & encouragement for him to accept that his foster dad wasn't going to hurt him. Trucker is a sweet, funny, adorable guy. He has a fairly laid-back temperament, but he does like to investigate the backyard, and go on car rides. He is totally housebroken and crate trained but his fosters leave him with run of the house. He mainly hangs out on the couch and has perfect house manners. He knows the sit & stay commands, and could easily learn more. He is very treat motivated, so treats and positive reinforcement are the way to go with Trucker. His perfect home would be a more mature one where he can enjoy his people & family without a lot of noise & commotion around him. He should be ok with kids over the age of 6, as long as they know how to be gentle with him. Trucker will be a loyal and loving companion for the right family.
