Description

German Shepherd Dog / Mixed

Special Needs

My name is Maia, and I am a 2-year old German Shepherd mix that had been surrendered to local animal services after having given birth to six beautiful puppies. A nice woman from a rescue organization agreed to take my pups to be sure they were given the proper care and start in life that they deserve. She also agreed to bring me into her home to ensure that I would not be used as a breeder dog, and promised to find me a deserving home, as well.

Initially, I was quite shy; however, I have really come out of my shell being in foster care, and want nothing more than to be by your side. My foster mom crate trained and house trained me, and I have had no accidents since arriving in my foster home. I am just learning how to walk nicely on leash, and can pull, so do need minor corrections from time to time. I didn’t know much about toys, as I never had any before, but finally found my niche with a soccer ball. I love to chase it, and will bring it back and drop it at your feet, so you can throw it again. I really enjoy playing with other dogs, but proper introductions are a must. Now that I am feeling more comfortable in my surroundings, my foster mom tells me I am turning into a rough and tumble tomboy.

I still need work on my basic obedience commands, so will need an adopter who is willing to be patient and work with me.  

Maia is going to make a wonderful doggie companion for whoever has the necessary skills and is lucky enough to adopt her. She does jump up on people, but is learning that this is unacceptable behavior. Because of this, older children in the home would be best. Her reaction to small critters is unknown at this time, but we suspect she would not be a good match.

It will be necessary for an adopter to have experience in raising a GSD, or other large breed dog. An adopter who can begin obedience training based upon positive reinforcement is recommended to ensure Maia remains on the path of a well-behaved canine citizen.
