Cohen, the 3-year-old German Shepherd, is such a gentleman.

As soon as anyone he hasn’t yet had the pleasure of meeting walks past this handsome boy, he feels he absolutely has to introduce himself. 

If you walk on past him without noticing his interest, he will let out a little cry until you have no other choice but to come over and shower him with love. Cohen was found wandering the streets by an Emergency Animal Medical Technician (EAMT), which is no place for any dog to be living.

The EAMT’s noticed a small wound on his front left leg, so they immediately got him on their vehicle and back to the Second Chance Animal Hospital for treatment. The trauma center staff was able to clean out his wound and give him plenty of water and a good meal, making him immediately feel much better.

Just as you would expect from a German Shepherd, Cohen is extremely smart and has a nose that can sniff out any treat in the house – even if it’s on the top shelf! He already knows how to sit on command and also seems to be potty trained but may require a quick refresher course in his new home.

He is highly motivated by treats, though, so any additional training or tricks you want to teach this intelligent boy will be a breeze! If you are looking for a gentle giant to take on hikes, walks, runs, or just cuddle up with on the couch, Cohen is definitely your guy!

You can meet Cohen at Campus for Compassion. His adoption fee is $110, which covers his neuter surgery and vaccines. For more information on Cohen and all the other adoptable animals at the Arizona Humane Society, call 602-997-7585 or visit
