Available for Adoption
Maizie is a 18 month old German Shepherd mix, that was originally picked up as a stray, so nothing is known about her background. She is an extremely sweet girl, who loves being with her people, but is also unconfident, and can be unsure in new situations. Due to this, she will need to go to a home with an experienced handler, one who understands this type of dog and will be able to help her navigate appropriately through these times, as well as advocate for her, allowing her the time and space to take it all in. Maizie would also do great in a home with a confident, well-balanced dog, as she looks to her doggie friends for guidance, and loves to play. Obedience training will be required, and hopefully her forever home would like to get her involved in some kind of canine sport which would only continue to boost her confidence. At this time Maizie knows, "sit", "down", "come", "touch", and we are working on loose leash walking, and the "place" command. She is super food motivated, and a very quick learner. She cannot go to a home with cats, and a 6 foot stockade fence is preferred, as she could make quick work of a chain link. Maizie is a great girl, with lots of love to give, and will blossom with consistent, experienced handling.
