This is Debra. She is a German Shepherd and she is 3 1/2 years old. Historically she was a therapy dog for a Wounded Warrior. After that she ended up in a situation that no dog should endure. We are trying to stay positive so will say nothing more about her last few months. She had lost most of her basic training unless you are firm with her but it is starting to come back with work by us. She has a VERY HIGH prey drive - ducks, geese, chickens, cats, rabbits, other dogs, etc., are all OFF LIMITS FOR HER. She is high energy and will therefore require a large fenced in yard of no less than 5 feet high - preferably 6 feet. She is too rough for small children - so no children under probably about 12. She isn't a very big girl at about 60 lbs. She REALLY would do best in a home that is experienced with German Shepherds - this is not a dog for a novice dog owner. We won't even consider an application that has not had experience with hard to handle breeds. She has not had a good few months and will require time, love, patience and a firm hand (not a cruel one - just firm). If you are interested in her please go to our website at www.patriotsforpets.com and complete an adoption application.
