DOB 02/2005.


Cricket is a German Shepherd mix. His prior owners have many good things to say about him. They are moving out of town and unfortunately cannot take him with them.


Cricket is very gentle with children, including small babies. He loves to lick! He is very alert to the family and often will go up to a crying child to see what is wrong and give a few licks. He does not bark very often, only when he wants to play. He is very friendly to people and other dogs. He uses the doggie door as he pleases, but sleeps inside at night. He loves to be petted.


He has had some training and obeys pretty well in the house and the yard. He knows sit, down, and stay. He is motivated by treats. He does need to be leashed at the park. He loves to tear apart stuffed animals. However, he is smart and does not bother the animals that belong to children. His toy should be introduced to him with much excitement and place it in his mouth. He then knows that it is okay to rip it apart. He loves to tear up plastic and eat it. Because of the danger, please only give him Kong toys. He likes to run after balls and will sometimes fetch. He also loves to chase squirrels, rabbits, lizards, and even butterflies and moths. He has never tried to dig out of a yard. He tends to fear getting his nails trimmed and getting bathed. Generally he behaves during these activities, but shakes like a leaf. He takes several naps a day and one in the evening.


Cricket is an absolutely wonderful dog, and extremely handsome and regal. He is a jewel, and he won't be here long!

This animal has been lucky enough to be adopted into a loving home! Please help us find homes for the others by contributing in any of these ways.
