About Xena

German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Xena was the victim of the worst animal cruelty and neglect. Before rescue she lived a life outdoors, exposed to all the elements including rain and snow. When we first met her, she was suffering terribly from a pyometra (uterine infection) which caused her to bleed for two months. She was in rough shape when we first got her and needed a 3hr life-saving emergency surgery right away. It saved her life and her rehabilitation at ARK Charities began. With us she has been able to build confidence and experience all the things she was denied exposure to in her early puppyhood, including attention and kindness. Xena is shy at initially meeting new people, but once she knows and trusts, she will be your loyal and devoted best friend forever! She has a beautiful, thick coat, and soft, soulful eyes. She is good with all dogs, but absolutely loves the boy dogs at the rescue. She loves to play with her jolly ball. Xena is crate trained and house trained, she is smart and very clean. She is loving, sweet and listens well to those she knows. Xena shows a bit too much interest in squirrels so we think a home without cats and small animals would be best for her. She is building confidence in meeting new people and is learning that people can be loving and gentle and she is responding in kind, with affection, kisses and hugs to people she knows. We prefer an expereinced home for Xena with a confident, fair and gentle, loving, but firm leader to help her continue to blossom. If you think you would like to help her learn about all the wonderful adventures life has to offer please fill out an application.
