Available for Adoption!
Christmas time is here, soon a new year will dawn, and I’m still patiently waiting for my furever home and that special family to give me lots of love and belly rubs. I enjoy walks and will do OK without a fenced yard if you take me out on walking adventures. If you have a fenced yard I will run and play with you. I just enjoy the company of peeps. I don’t care to be with other dogs, just be by myself with my humans. I am a good girl in the house…unless you leave tasty morsels of food on the counter. Then I may just have to help myself! I know Sit, Down, am learning Wait, but I don’t really want to wait, hee hee. I also do pretty well on a leash. I’m still working on some other things like no jumping up on my peeps. I just want to greet and say Hi and give kisses and hugs to my peeps.
Sasha is a sweet-natured German Shepherd that is approximately 5 years old. She is almost completely blind, may see some shadows when close to something, Sasha is very smart and learns quickly. She is already getting Sit, Come, and her name. We are working on “No Jump" or "Off” because she wants to jump up on you or counter surf. However, she does not beg while her foster Mom is eating, she lays down to rest during that time. Within a week, she attached to her foster Mommy and has been so eager to please.
Sasha is completely house broken and has had zero accidents since arriving to her foster home. She is almost trustworthy in the house, unless there is food on the counter, or she can get to paper towels or toilet paper LOL. However, training can help her learn boundaries.
Sasha should have a fenced yard to roam. In addition, she needs to go to a dog-savvy home that will continue working with her commands to make her the best dog she can be. She would do best in a home as the only dog. She does not like very active dogs.
Sasha just wants a forever home with people that will love her and she will give so much love back. German Shepherds are eager to please and loyal to those that love them.
