Galya is a tiny ball of fire! Spunky "begins" to describe this energetic girl. She is approximately 7-months-old, and she came into rescue with her sister, Gemma, and brother, Gambol, from a rural shelter, who have both been adopted already. We are fairly certain that she is a Belgian Malinois/GSD mix with a little something else thrown in (she's very petite...only 30 pounds). She loves to snuggle and is very affectionate. She is very out going and adventurous, yet shy when she meets new people,especially men. Once she gets use to you, she will be your best friend. She is fine with kids and other dogs, and she is house-trained, as well as crate-trained. Galya is extremely intelligent, she will need to be kept physically and mentally stimulated. She is extremely athletic and would make a great running partner. Gayla is the more timid of the three siblings and would do best if she had another dog in her life that can show her the ropes. Galya all ready has the mischievous part covered . She is high energy and has a high prey drive. She has done well around cats but will "track” about the yard and bring you little furry prizes. This little spitfire has a large personality to make up for her tiny size. She would do best going to a home with a family who has experience with energy dogs. If you are interested in meeting Galya, please contact your adoption coordinator. Or if you’re in our adoption territory of VA, NC or MD, you can complete an application at www.southeastgermanshepherdrescue.com. Galya is being fostered in Portsmouth, VA.
Our adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit. If you have any questions about the adoption process please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
