Meet Oakley, this week’s Reston Pet of the Week. Oakley is a German Shepherd and Lab mix who needs a new home. Here is what the people at
Virginia German Shepherd Rescue, Inc. have to say about him:
Oakley may be small in stature but he has a big personality. He is the perfect companion; a diamond in the “ruff,” and it won’t take much to polish him up.
He has a great mixture of playful and laid back. He loves his toys and carries one around most of the time. He loves to run and is a great jumper (I think he would do great in agility) and can easily clear a three-foot fence from a sit, so he will need to have at least a five-foot fence to ensure that a squirrel or bird don’t entice him to leave the yard. Oakley gets along with other dogs and dog savvy cats. He would do best in a house with another active dog.
Oakley does have a sensitive tummy, which we believe to be a food allergy, however we are working with a vet to find the right food and as of this moment, he is doing great. His new family will need to ensure that Oakley maintains the correct diet to stay healthy and happy!
