It has to be said: Sadie is the perfect house GSD. She is housebroken, quiet, and doesn't chew or get on the furniture. She loves to be petted and scratched and snuggled but if you're busy she's content to wait by your feet. Sadie was dropped off at the San Antonio animal shelter as half of a breeding pair, emaciated and suffering from a skin infection. The infection is cleared up and Sadie is putting on healthy weight with good groceries and exercise. She loves to play with the big ball on the rope and will fetch and bring it back to you, and she likes leisurely walks but she doesn't need long strenuous walks or lots of vigorous exercise. She is not cat friendly so she needs a home without cats. She doesn't bark much but will "talk" to you occasionally. In short, she is the perfect companion-- ready to play when you are but happy to relax and just be with you when it's time to settle down.
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.
