When you inquire about a dog, the following questions might be helpful:

1. Why are you giving up your dog?

2. Has the dog ever bitten, nipped or 'gone after' anyone?

3. Does it have any health problems? Who is your vet? May I contact him/her?

4. Where did you get the dog? Does it have papers?

5. Does your dog have any training? Is it housebroken? crate trained?

6. Is the dog left alone for long periods? What does it do? Bark? Dig? Chew? Is it an inside or outside dog? Where does it sleep?

7. How does the dog behave with adults, children? Other dogs? Cats?

8. Is your dog mellow? calm? energetic? protective? affectionate?

 

Pebbles is a friendly loving 6 year old purebred German Shepherd, who is happy and energetic especially when she is with her owner and family.

She loves to run, play, chase balls and squirrels, and swim in the pool. If you or your family are in the pool too long and away from the steps she will come in and herd you towards the steps and safety. She is friendly and loves people including our gardener, pool maintenance person and pest control service; she looks forward to their visits and the attention.

With that energy though comes some anxiety especially with fireworks and thunder. The only issue she has with our gardener is his leaf blower which bothers her ears, so when he comes if we are home she comes inside, if we are not home, she gladly follows the gardener into the dog run. We have had no issues with food aggression, nipping or biting of people. She is a hunter though, so no skunk, opossum or turkey is safe in our backyard, she has lots of fun chasing the ever illusive squirrels. Also she would not be good with small children; she is just too excited to see them, although training will solve this problem. She is also not good with cats or small dogs, especially small yappy dogs that are aggressive. She is protective.

Pebbles does need more training and socialization, she has had some, and responds well to a strong hand, but will need more along with walks and exercise to work out some of her energy. She has the potential to be a truly great companion, sweet, loving and will listen intently to all your cares and love you more for telling her.

She is healthy, with the exception of a small cyst on her back that has been stable for a year and was checked last month she is fine. She does have dry skin so we give her a supplement because she gets itchy. She is also house broken, crate trained and sleeps inside.

She was re-housed with us 3 years ago because her old owner had her and her brother and had a backyard that was too small for two active large dogs. We have to let her go because we are moving to a place with no yard and that does not allow dogs, especially large dogs.

With her goes her outdoor dog house, indoor dog beds, collars, leashes, bowls, toys and everything else we have for her including food, flea med, vitamin supplement that we have on hand. She has also been chipped with 24petwatch.com.

Come meet her, it is hard not to fall in love with her.
