Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first
ADOPTED ON 01-26-20 Sasha is a six month old female, 30 pound, spayed, Black Shepherd mix. We believe she will always be small. Sasha and her sister were surrendered to Jasper Texas Shelter when they were babies, they were only four months old. The owner said that they were both running into the street and that they were turning them in because they “wanted a better place for them”. However, they surrendered the two babies to a kill shelter. Then in order to save them from being euthanized, they were rescued by RDVG’s partner and taken to YaYa’s Bow Wow boarding house for rescue dogs only.
Sasha is now in foster care in Terryville CT; her foster mom tells us that she is awfully sweet and very submissive—be sure to see her video. She appreciates her new life, is crate trained and housetrained. Sasha enjoys playing with other dogs and her foster believes that she will do well with children of any age. However, many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Sasha loves to romp outside with her buddies and does try to play the boss with little dogs. She would be a great family pet who will hike, enjoys attention and will push her way to get to you if you are giving attention to another dog. She is a social dog, would be a great couch potato and would do well in an active home as a part of a family daily life.
Sasha has a wise quiet inner peaceful soul that is looking for a family where her heart will fill with happiness She would benefit from having a fenced yard, but not required, that she can run around in, and she would do well if you have another dog buddy for her to romp with but she would be just as happy with a family. Sasha has been imagining and waiting for someone who will love her unconditionally. Her basic prerequisite is an adopter who is as devoted and loyal as she will be to you.
ABOUT THE BREED: German Shepherds are friendly but have calm confidence about them, they may seem kind of reserved. Most GS owners say that the characteristics of German Shepherds are that incredibly loyal, and friendly. When in need, however, a German Shepherd is instantly ready to protect, play a game or perform a task—in some cases as a guard dog, police dog, herder or seeing eye dog. With a strong work ethic and an eager intelligence, GS breeds are good with other dogs and children especially if they have been exposure to them.
