Well, we have learned that our little sweetheart takes quite a while to adjust to a new home. She has gotten very comfortable and happy here at her foster's and would be very happy staying here with her other foster buddies and parents. Sooo....sweet Stephie would probably do best in a home with at least 2 other dogs that she really likes, and very patient adopters who will give her plenty of time to adjust to her new home. Once she decides she loves you, she is the sweetest girl around, but until then plays hard to get, and sometimes even refuses to eat. She did this upon arriving here, but we thought it was from being spayed, and the stress of everything, including comimg from the shelter. Now we know she just takes her time settling in. So, if you are patient and love dogs, she still might be the girl for you!
Meet new girl Stephie, a sweet, petite little darling that will steal your heart! She adores her human, and loves to stay close to you and give sweet little kisses. Stephie is a bit underweight, but is now eating well and should gain those needed pounds soon. She has a soft fine coat, and does not seem to shed much. She is house and crate trained, likes other dogs, and even cats! A shy, gentle girl, she would fit in well in just about any household. Won't you give this little angel a chance?
NOTE: In our experience many German Shepherd Dogs are very good with kids. In our bios, we may provide information on our experience with a particular dog and children. However AGSDR discourages ALL unsupervised animal/child interaction. Children should be supervised at all times when they interact with ANY animal, whether it is a horse, dog, cat, bunny, lizard, or any other species. Even loving household pets can have a grumpy day, or otherwise get tired of a child's attention, so proper supervision is essential for the well being of any child and any pet.
The entire biography of this dog is based solely upon our volunteers' experiences with the dog. The dog's age and weight are estimates, and statements about the health, temperament, training, and ability to get along with other animals, children, cats and other dogs, are estimated solely based on our volunteer's experiences with this dog. Your experiences with this dog may be quite different than those of our volunteers.
