Adoptable Pet of the Week: Rex

Meet Rex, a German Shepherd and the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week! Rex loves treats and is looking for a chill family to spend forever with.

Rex is in shelter at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, which is currently at or near capacity for its dog kennels.

His friends had this to say about him:

Meet Rex! Rex’s foster family noted that Rex is sweet and a good boy on the leash.

While Rex has some vision issues, his other senses make up for the vision and he is extremely smart. He knows some cues and is very, very treat motivated and wants to learn more. He loves being outside and going for walks and long sniffs.

His perfect day would be treats (and more treats!), time outside, followed by a nap wherever he can be closest to his human. Rex is fully house-trained and has good manners on the leash.

Rex is very much a go with the flow kind of dog who just likes being with people.

Are you a go with the flow kind of person? Are you looking for a furry companion? Check out Rex’s complete profile to set up a time to meet!
