Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Poodle (Standard) (long coat)
Weight: 47 lbs
Height: estimated 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 12/26/2013
Fence Needed: A fence would be great due to her skittish behavior but not needed.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Breeder release/ retiring
Special Needs: none noted
What kind of home would be best for me: We are seeking a calm home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away. Sheba will take time to build trust and needs an owner that has the patience to help her learn and trust.
What is my personality like: Sheba has spent most of her live giving people puppies. She was a breeder release to CPR. Sheba does not know what it is like to be a personal house dog so she will need to be shown exactly what that is. Sheba is painfully shy, but some people she feels okay enough to approach them and allow affection.. while others she runs away from. This girl touches our heart because we sympathize with her. She wants love, she doesn't know how to trust. Sheba is very sweet with other dogs, but she is people selective. It takes her a while to get used to new people, but once she knows you she is loving and so sweet! She is neither food nor crate aggressive, but she will make messes in her crate. Sheba does not walk on a leash at this time, it makes her nervous and she tries to pull away from you. She will play with toys, but mostly she likes to hang out with her chosen people and other dogs. Sheba needs a family that will be willing to give her the time she needs to adjust to them and her new home. She might seem distant at first but once she has accepted you, you are hers. Sheba will need to be taught how to walk on a leash, and she will need to be slowly socialized so she can blossom into the dog we know she can be.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Skittish
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
