Jess is an absolutely beautiful, incredibly loyal German Shepherd cross Whippet around 7-8 yrs old. Jess is a very sweet, very affectionate girl looking for a special home who are ideally experienced with Shepherd traits as she has a tendency to be protective over her home and owner once she has bonded with someone if allowed, however with a firm hand and clear boundaries, Jess is much more relaxed and is very obedient. If she knows her owner is ‘in charge’ of the situation, she doesn’t feel the need to become protective, so a confident but kind and understanding owner is who she needs to find. She is looking for a quiet child free home with few visitors, ideally in a quiet area as she struggles when out walking in busy areas where there are lots of people and dogs about and is reactive as she becomes overwhelmed and over stimulated. She wears a muzzle when out in busy areas. Jess is brilliant around the house – she is fully housetrained, calm (but absolutely loves a cuddle) and is fine to be left for a few hours. She also travels very well in the car. Jess is reactive to unknown dogs, but walks fine with dogs she knows, she becomes dominant and bossy in a home with dogs but could possibly live with a very confident male dog. Jess has clearly had an awful start to life and we hope to be able to find her that special home who understand her – she is a one in a million dog with so much to give. You will have full behaviour back up and support as part of the adoption of Jess, we are appealing for either a foster home or adoptive home for her.
