 Zuko is a super smart dog with a lot to offer his new home. He knows "Sit, Down, Touch, Uh-Uh, and Stay". He even knows to go potty when you said "Take a Break" or "You're Free."

Zuko does have one challenge. He has some resource guarding issues. In his previous home, he started resource guarding his food and toys to the child in his home. Because of this, he can not have any children living in his home or visiting his home. He needs a single owner (preferrably male as he responds better to men) who has a calm home with little visitors and has worked with/owned Shepherds and guarding behaviors.  

    While Zuko was in his previous home, he suffered a neck injury (nothing major just a cut that he had gotten somehow which is now all healed up). Since then Zuko gets nervous when someone (whom he does not yet trust) reaches for his neck. We think after he has built trust with his new owner that this will subside. Zuko is can by shy and insecure.

His new owner will need to be confident and take things slowly with him at first. He needs know his owner is the alpha, and leads with structure and confidence. As Zuko is very sensitive emotionally and to physical touch, physically forcing him to submit is not a strategy that works well with him as his first response is to assert his own dominance.
German Shepherd dogs love to learn as they are working dogs. His new family will have to be dedicated to his continued training so that his mind will stay stimulated and he will continue to grow and learn.  His new home MUST have a fenced-in backyard for him to run and play in.
