Maestro is a handsome young lad estimated around 2 years of age and believed to be an English Shepherd. Maestro found himself at the shelter as a stray and his past is a mystery. Maestro has taken some time to come around to having new humans in his life and is now ready to look for a home of his own.
Maestro is a playful, goofy, loyal, and game-y young guy who is looking for a close bond and lots of adventures. Maestro is still learning how to trust new humans and requires a slow, patient introduction preferably during a walk. He loves going on walks and hikes and is a very active young guy - he is particularly fond of exploring muddy ponds. Maestro does have some herding dog tendencies such as circling and wanting to be very mouth on that require understanding and redirection. Maestro is a loving and eager to please guy that is going to thrive with structured socialization and building his library of compassionate experiences. Maestro is learning that the care isn't scary and doing a wonderful job although they aren't his favorite yet. Maestro is very weary of children and is not recommended for a home with children under 13 years old.
Maestro is very dog savvy and lives with a variety of other personalities. He does a great job of navigating play groups and respecting the boundaries of other dogs. He currently prefers trying to play with his preferred humans but is figuring out how to play with the other dogs over time. Maestro has not met any small dogs or cats at this time.
Maestro is searching for a home that values his herding skills and loyalty that can guide him in his ongoing socialization and adventure seeking. If you're the home for Maestro email firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application or visit tierhaven.rescuegroups.org for FAQs
