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?


I have come upon a life event where I can no longer provide her with the proper care and attention she needs. Snax is a 5 yr old female german shepherd dog. She is an explorer, loves chasing squirrels and tummy rubs. I adopted her in 2019 from the SPCA. She knows some standard tricks: sit, down, spin, bang bang (plays dead) and rollover. She is a working dog and needs to be with active people to run or go on hikes with. She is an excellent running partner! She still has some anxiety issues so she doesn't do well in crowded or over stimulating environments. It is important she goes to a family with experience with large working dogs, as she needs consistent training, guidance and discipline.

She would thrive in an environment where she has space to run and explore and is not overwhelmed with city noise and traffic. She loves to snuggle and will know when you need comforting. She will end up being your best friend. When she sleeps, she snores very softly with her mouth open and it is the cutest thing ever.
