Panzer, a 5-year-old German Shepherd

Panzer is a 5-year-old German Shepherd that was found as a stray with no identification. He was lucky enough to be brought to the Humane Society of Huron Valley where is being cared for until he finds a caring home. Panzer is house-trained and knows many of his basic manners already.

German Shepherds are known for their strength and agility, and are loyal family pets and good guard dogs. They are an ideal choice for many families. They also require regular exercise and grooming to keep their coat healthy. Families that are familiar with the German Shepherd breed will find that Panzer meets most of the traditional characteristics of the breed.

Panzer is a strong guy and would love a big yard to run free in and a family who knows how to have some fun and enjoys daily playtime. Panzer prefers to be the only dog in home, but we think he might do well living in a home with cats. With ears that point to the sky, he is a bright young man that already has some basic training and is ready to learn more. At the end of the day Panzer would love to curl up with you on the couch and indulge in endless amounts of belly rubs.

HSHV is open daily at 11a.m. for adoptions. Please stop by and visit Panzer.

All pets available for adoption are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their vaccinations, medically and behaviorally evaluated, and they have a microchip ID all included in their low adoption fee. Please make adoption your first option.
