Hi I'm Gracie! I am a sweet and curious shepherd/Carolina Dog mix, weighing in at 40lbs. I am very intelligent and love exploring what the world has to offer! I am considered what you would call a 'working' dog who needs a job to complete. This could be living on a farm, working on agility training, scent (nose) related work, or staying busy with plenty of exercise and playtime! I will need a dedicated and experienced adopter who will have the time to train me and provide exercise.Are you looking for an active pup to go hiking, running or play fetch with? Then I am the pup for you! I am spunky, adorable, lovable, and a highly intelligent dog. I love attention, massages, long walks, playing fetch, and tug of war. While in the fenced in yard I like to zoom around as fast as she can. I swear sometimes I make myself dizzy. I love playing with all of my smart toys and I learn quickly and am always eager to please! I have been working with a trainer to address some jumpy and mouthy behaviors I had been exhibiting at the shelter butsince I have been in my foster home I have learned to not to be so mouthy and jumpy, and I have learned to walk nicely on a leash. I will need an experienced dog owner who will continue with my training, so that I don't slip back into any unwanted behaviors. I will need lots of physical, as well as mental exercise. I love traveling to different places for my walks. I am dog selective and like some dogs but not others. I may do well with older kids, but I'd be afraid I might knock over little ones with my high energy. I will, with continued training, make the right owner the most wonderful pet a person could ask for! Gracie is available for applications and appointments at this time. She is currently in a foster home. We will be reviewing all applications to find the best possible fit for Gracie.
