Pet of the Week: Nermal

No foolin’ on this first of April – here’s Nermal, our Pet of the Week!

This young German Shepherd dog was brought in by a good Samaritan in early March. He’s a 60-pound ball of energy who loves to play! In fact, Nermal has so much energy that we consider him one of our “Rambunctious Red” personalities.

As with human three-year-olds, Nermal does best when he has lots of exercise and something to keep his mind busy. He is very food motivated, so you can use his kibble as treats for training. Nermal is excellent at “sit,” but is still learning other cues. He enjoys exploring outside and would love a home with lots of room to run around with his people.

Caregivers have noticed that Nermal does well with some large dogs, but he gets very excited when he first meets them. If there are other large dogs in his new home, Nermal would do best with a slow introduction. This energetic boy will need some patience and TLC because everything is so new. Nermal is not potty trained or crate trained yet – teaching him those skills will help tremendously on the road to success!

Nermal is neutered and microchipped. His adoption comes with a free visit to the veterinarian of your choice and 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion. Since he’s our Pet of the Week, his adoption fee has been reduced! Remember that a pet license is a requirement and a fee may be applied.

You can find out more about Nermal and his other friends at kingcounty.gov/AdoptAPet. Adoptions are by appointment only, so make a reservation online. If you have more questions, contact RASKC at 206-296-7387 (PETS) or email pets@kingcounty.gov.
