FARRAH - ID#A777846

  • Animal ID#: A777846
  • Dog Name: Farrah
  • Dog Sex: Female
  • Approximate Age: 8 months
  • Dog Size: L
  • A Little About Me: I arrived at the shelter under-socialized and borderline feral. I am now cool with a leash and enjoy going for walks which is a big deal for me. I am very defensive when I meet people and that involves lots of barking and trying to flee. I do better meeting females and come around faster than I do with males. I lack so much confidence and really need a family that will continue with my socialization. I also need a patient family that will allow me time to adjust. I really want to please and once I bond I keep a close watch on my people. I would do best in a home with other playful dogs that can show me the ropes and that people really are a good thing. I currently live with 3 other dogs and there are 3 kids in the home as well. It took me time to adjust to everyone but I am getting there. It would be best for me to find an adoptive home sooner than later as adjusting is very hard for me. I am as smart as they come and learn very quickly. If project dogs are your thing and gorgeous smart gsd’s really float your boat then inquire about me!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
