Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:

Meet Possum!

This hunky Shepherd arrived at the shelter, with a severe tail injury. While we aren't sure what caused it, our amazing vet staff was able to get him in for surgery, cleaned up, and on the mend! Possum is incredibly outgoing, and spunky, and eager to please! He does, however, have one request, please don't touch his feet! This stud has the best of manners, and is kennel trained, and potty trained! Interested in learning more about Possum? Please contact his foster provider at

Foster update: Possum "is a great dog. He is always smiling. He knows many commands but I believe he is hard of hearing so he responds better when hand signals are used along with voice commands. He walks well on a leash and really loves his daily walks. He is crate trained and enjoys resting on his cushy bed in his crate but also loves to sleep on his bed next to me at night."
