Due to the conditions he was found in, he was considered a cruelty case and became a part of Safe Humane Chicago. Through Safe Humane, Captiva will receive life time behavioral and training support. Captiva is about a year old. He is a tall, handsome boy that is still learning about the world around him. Captiva is reactive to new people and dogs he doesn’t know and uses his big bark when he is nervous. At the shelter he was able to be handled by different people once properly introduced.

He knows sit on command and is crate trained. Captiva will need a German Shepherd experienced adopter that will be committed to training and socializing him.
