Hi there! Bonita is my name and chasing tennis balls is my game! I am a 6 year old, solid black, gorgeous, female GSD. My original owner purchased me from a breeder but had to find me a new home due to financial hardships. I am about 82 lbs and very athletic. I love to go on car rides and walks/runs every opportunity that I get. I’m very protective of my house and will alert to strange noises or people. No cats or small dogs for me but I love to play with medium to large dogs. I would be happy to have older children in my forever home but no young children please...I'm afraid of them.
I love to chase (especially tennis balls), toys, cats, squirrels, lights ...just about anything that moves. I have been working on my confidence since I'm a little timid in new situations. Because of this, I prefer to be around older children. I walk very well on a leash and know my commands, even a few in German. I am completely housebroken and love to sleep in my crate or dog bed but I do have a tendency to sneak on the furniture when no one is home...don't tell my foster! I am very energetic and full of life and if you have treats I will be your best friend.
Are you my new family? I'm being fostered in Elon, NC!
