IIntroducing, the Energizer Bunny of Shepherds.  Percy is thought to be about 9 years old but it’s almost impossible to believe.  He has the energy of a 3-year-old and LOVES to play.  He as a cute habit of inviting you to play by dropping a toy at your feet or in your lap.  If you don’t respond he’ll bring you a different one.  Still not interested?  Don’t worry; he’s absolutely convinced you want to play and will bring toy after toy until he finds the right one.   He’s very focused on having fun and wants to share all the good times with you.

Percy enjoys a car ride, walks well on a leash, takes treats very gently, knows “sit” and is learning “wait”, is completely trustworthy in the house – no kennel needed – and greets all visitors like old friends.  If there’s something he doesn’t know how to do he will learn easily with a good old fashioned food bribe.  

Now, everyone has a few faults and Percy’s no exception - except he only has one. He does like to counter-surf.  If he can reach it he’ll eat it.  Simply pushing food to the back of the counter isn’t enough of a challenge for this boy.  Food of all kinds needs to be secured behind a closed door or on top of the fridge or he’ll help himself to it asap.

One last thing you should know about this boy.  During a recent routine exam, the vet stated that other than a known thyroid issue (easily controlled with daily medication) “he is in amazing condition”  “..teeth are almost completely free of tartar, ears are clean, eyes are clear, coat is good and his confirmation (hips) is amazing.” 

You couldn’t ask for more unless it’s more information on this great guy.  Email us at cbbrewster@gmail.com.

Percy will attend all adoption events at the PetSmart, Pembroke, 4421 Virginia Beach Blvd,  11-2pm.
