Pride is a large young male German Shepherd Dog who is available for adoption from The Animal Rescue Coalitions.    Pride is house trained, neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.    Pride would prefer a home without young children.   For more information about adopting this wonderful boy, please CLICK HERE

Pride is a 1.5 year old, up to date on vaccines, nurtured male German Shepherd and weighs about 96 pounds.

Pride is looking for a forever home where he will need someone to be his leader. He will do best with a leader that has a soft touch as he is very food motivated and already knows some commands. He is also trained to a gentle leader for walking and just general travelling.

He travels well for some people in a car but if he thinks he can get away with it he will bark at people and cows. When I tell him no, he stops.

Pride is a wonderful dog but WILL NOT be adopted to a home with children under 10. He is good with cats but will chase them if given the opportunity so if you have a cat that won’t stand it’s ground he would not be a good fit.

Pride will require you to attend obedience with him as this is a good bonding experience for you and him and even though he knows some things, obedience is always a good choice. This must be positive reinforcement training with food or food and a clicker.

Pride has also attended doggie daycare since he was a puppy so is great with other dogs. Even though he is good with other dogs, Pride still needs to be introduced properly.

If you you could give Pride the stable home he is looking for please fill out an application to meet this amazing boy. Please fill out the adoption application found at and email it back to ARC. Your application will be processed in a timely manner. Please contact your vet clinic and give them permission to speak with us about your past and present pets. We will be checking that your pets have been spayed /neutered and kept up to date with vaccinations and yearly check-ups.

Only approved applications are eligible to meet any of our dogs for adoption. We do not operate out of a kennel so all of our dogs are placed in foster homes. Without the generosity and kind hearts of our foster families many of these dogs would not be able to have a second chance at a wonderful life. This means that our Foster Parent’s time is very important to us and we appreciate your understanding in this matter.
