Drex loves me and my sis of course! He loves his "True- Blue" Dove & loves going for walks, car rides and jumping off the dock at the lake.

I dont think he has any...anymore.

Favorite Toy:
Killian:) and playing tug o' war with him.

Favorite Food:
Everything expecially our specialty homemade dog cookies, he also loves carrots!

Favorite Walk:
Walk...did u say Walk.!!... He loves running off leash through the woods.

Best Tricks:
"zwinger" that means go lay down on ur spot (he used to have a crate we called the zwinger) he can do kangaroo where he hops up on his back legs and "get the toy".

Arrival Story:
Lets see...Drexal has had many "owners" (if thats what you want to call them). I first seen Drexal when I was working in the Dog Shelter in Cleveland, I already had adopted Raven and had snuck out a Doberman (who now lives a happy spoiled life at moms house) Drexal, who was known as Spike was in a small crate on the back of a pick up truck. The former "owners" had bought him for the elderly-blind grandpa, thinking that any German Shep. (with-out training) would be a service dog for the blind. Once they realized that he needed proper training for such a career, they crated him. Very large dog in a crate for a medium sized dog. Drexal was a little under a year old, and very friendly with everyone that came by. Since I already had the two dogs at my house I figured that he would get a good home through adoption. Drex was neuterd and put on the adoption floor, being such a big beautiful boy he quickly found a home. No longer then a week later he was returned for ripping up garbage and going to the bathroom all over the house. Drexal was again put on the adoption floor and again he found a new home and again with in a week or two was returned for the same things. That was when the shelter put him in the back and marked him for certain death. I have always loved GSD and I couldnt bear to see him die for such dumb reasons. I then offered to take him home and place him in a GSD rescue. I contacted the rescue lady who said that she would find him a forever loving home. The rescue group called me and said there was a couple looking for a GSD and would like to come over and see him, when they came over they immediately wanted him, of course he is a big beauty. They had him for a couple months, I was walking out of the shelter when I seen them walking him in. I thought "whats with his dog?" I took him back home and continued to place him in two other homes and he was all ways brought back...yes, Drex had a garbage can issue and a housebreaking problem-submissive urination. I kept him for a while until another family wanted him, and I gave him away again. Not until months later I got a call and was told to come get him..he was just not working out. I went to get him and thats when I made the decision that he needed to be with us, in my home. Poor dog confused with all the house hopping, he just needed a steady routine. I have offically owned Drex since 2004 and this is where he will spend the rest of his life.

His submissive urination is also a thing of the past, the secret to that was not to get upset when he started urinating or he would pee more, he was just confused & scared. He no longer is confused or scared and hes now a happy boy with routine and love in his life Love you & miss you forever. You are a good dog ♥
