Halbert is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 3-year-old, 67-pound male German Shepherd.

Halbert is a big, smart dog who is eager to learn. He already knows “sit” and is making lots of progress with walking politely on a leash. He’s been practicing with his easy-walk harness and is ready to keep up the training. Halbert will need daily exercise and room to run and play. He can be independent and is happy to chew a bone on his bed while you sit nearby. Halbert could live in a multitude of households. Maybe yours is the right one for him!

Halbert was transferred to RCHS through the Friends of County Animal Shelters (FOCAS) program. The $145 adoption fee for Halbert includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip.
