Rafe, Anatolian shepherd and German shepherd mix
Rafe is a male Anatolian shepherd and German shepherd mix being cared for at Dog Gone Seattle.
Rafe loves other dogs. Rafe would prefer a home without small children. Fear not: He is already house-trained. He has been vaccinated and neutered.
From Rafe's current caretaker:
Rafe is a handsome, two-year-old, 85 lb Anatolian/German shepherd mix that was rescued from a shelter in Texas. He is a little underweight, and will likely almost 100 lbs at his ideal weight. Rafe has good basic manners, and was reportedly good with other dogs in Texas. Due to his breed mix we will not be considering apartments or condos for Rafe as he needs space of his own and would not be happy cooped up. Our ideal home would have experience with guardian breeds as they can be cautious with strangers and bond very tightly with their families.

Here's what Boomer's friends at Dog Gone Seattle think of him:
Boomer is an adorable chihuahua/terrier mix around 15 lbs and adorable as can be! Boomer is a smart, attentive and eager-to-please kind of pup. With proper leadership, Boomer walks great on leash. He does great in his crate, is potty-trained and loves to be by his people. Boomer is a bit insecure, and needs a confident handler than can help him be his best self. He needs an owner or family who can provide structure on walks (maintain proper leash manners) and provide boundaries within the home. He is such a sweet and affectionate pup that he will really make an amazing addition to anyone looking for a companion.
