Tibby Female Shepherd Mix ~2 years old, 40 lbs. Tibby is a happy, playful, loving girl. She should go to a home with another dog and will make an amazing companion to her fellow canines and humans alike. She loves romping around with her doggy housemates and meeting new canine friends when out and about. She's also always pleased to meet new people and is great with kids, too. She lived with a cat for several weeks and did very well having a feline roommate, but it's been a while so she may need a refresher on how to interact with cat. Although she's more scared of them than they are of her, so she wouldn't cause harm as far as we've ever seen. Tibby is house-trained and and is pretty trust-worthy when left in the house without her humans. She goes for the occasional low-hanging fruit like paper towels and of course you shouldn't leave the trash/recycling out where she can get into it, but she is not destructive, just a typical dog! Tibby enjoys sunbathing on the porch, swimming, hiking, and zooming around with other dogs, but is quick to relax and curl up with her people, and has lots of affection to give. She loves to sleep next to her people if you let her. When out on walks, adoring passerby's comment on how calm she is for such a relatively young dog. Tibby sleeps through the night, shows no resource guarding issues, and is an all around easy-going lady. She should go to a pretty active home that enjoys walks and hikes because she has some hip-dysplasia in her back legs and exercise will keep her already impressive muscle mass back there going strong. Her hips do not cause her pain or any quality of life issues or slow her down at all, she just takes Dasaquin (a glucosamine joint supplement) with breakfast every morning and it keeps her in great shape. You don't notice her hip issues too much except occasionally she looks like she has some "swagger" when she walks and likes a little help getting her back legs into larger cars. Also, look how cute she is!! She really has got it all...except for her forever home. Again, we'd like to see her go to a home where she is not the only dog. Apply today to be the lucky family that gets to bring Tibby home!Please apply to adopt me:!adoption-application/c1ywy
