SWEET PUDDIN NEEDS A NEW HOME PUDDIN came into the rescue on 5/15 and was immediately given to a foster with the potential for adoption. That has not panned out the way we though and she is again available to find a forever home.
She is a 5 year old black and tan female GSD. She has been owned since she was 10 weeks by a couple who, for health reasons, could no longer care for her. She is somewhat trained, to sit anbd down but that's about it for behavioral skills. She super friendly with people she knows and dogs, but has developed some protective instincts with her foster. She is up to date on shots, chipped, spayed and healthy. She does have a minor issue that need to be discussed. This is Panus, which is a disease of the eye where a film forms over the eye, and if left untreated, can cause blindness. She is on eye drops which will keep the issue from becoming a problem. These are very inexpensive and need to be done 2x a day (one drop in each eye).
Puddin is a friendly dog who loves to play ball and is really affectionate. Since she has been unable to play of late she really craves attention and human interaction. We have noticed however that she has become very protective of her foster parent. She was NOT that way with me for the first few days I had her. She was reactive when people she didn't know approached. This can be due to her vision issues, which we do not know how severe they are or just being protective. Either way we would nty recommend her for a family with small kids, but rather to an adult family who have training and obedience skills. She is very dog savvy and friendly and did go to day care consistently before she was turn in to us..
Puddin is lean and lanky and weighs about 70 pounds. She is really pretty and has great hips and runs like the wind. She is available immediately.
