HSWA Pet of the Week: Mater

Information and pictures provided by the Humane Society of West Alabama

This handsome dog is Mater! He is a 2-3 year old male German Shepherd/Heeler mix and has a thick black and brown coat. He weighs 38 pounds and is full-grown. Mater is very sweet natured and enjoys being with his person. He can be very energetic and excited but he also settles down nicely. He will need daily exercising and room to run so a fenced in yard will be required. Mater does well with other dogs and should be fine with children 10 and over. We don't think he was socialized a lot so new experiences like getting in the car has him nervous, so we are being patient to help him gain confidence with his new surroundings. He has started his crate training too. Mater is up-to-date on his vet care, neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped.

All HSWA dogs are either at our Dog Adoption Facility or in foster homes. All dogs require an appointment to meet.
