Gypsy came to us after getting into a bit of trouble. She wasn't properly socialized as a pup and had poor leadership, was often let loose to run throughout her neighborhood. Unfortunately, this led to her killing a neighbor's Chihuahua. Sad situation, but far too common, which is why we put such an emphasis in finding strong, responsible leaders for our rescue dogs to ensure they thrive going forward.
Despite her past troubles, Gypsy is very much deserving of a second chance. She is very sweet and affectionate with humans, quite submissive, has solid obedience and has done well since coming to us. With other dogs, she's shown a lot of promise, as well. We fully socialized her with another one of our Shepherds who she has become best buds with. She needs continued socialization work, but we see a very bright future in this department. Lifetime training is included with her adoption, so we will actively partake in her socialization process with her new owners and are confident she will do wonderful with proper leadership and commitment.
Gypsy is spayed, crate-trained, and current on her shots. We are looking for a home with a fenced yard, no cats, small dogs or children under the age of 7 years old. We will consider homes with well-balanced dogs of decent size, 50+ pounds, preferably male. Gypsy and the current dog will need to be fully-socialized before she will be allowed to go home, but again, those socialization sessions will be free of charge, as well as any further training work she requires.
We see a lot of potential in her, if you feel you are a great fit and can give her a wonderful life, please submit an application and we can proceed from there!
