5-year-old, female, black and blonde, German Shepherd
Good with other dogs: Large dogs only
Good with children: Older children only
Good with cats: No
We’re always so sad when a happy dog loses his/her home. Heidi was doing great with her family, who
even paid for surgery on both ACLs, and was enjoying life. Unfortunately, she attacked a small dog and
the family worried she might be too much for their coming newborn.
Heidi is so sweet, but she doesn’t understand what happened to her family, which breaks our hearts. So
right now, she’s a little anxious. But her previous owner reports that she is smart, knows several
commands, walks well on a leash and does well with older children. However, Heidi has a high prey
drive, so no small dogs or cats for this girl. But if you’re looking for a sweet, middle-aged German
Shepherd with some training under her belt, Heidi is the one for you.
As always, if you are interested in a Saving Paws dog, you must fill out our

members are volunteers and aren’t compensated for their time and expenses. Many juggle family and
full-time careers while volunteering at Saving Paws. Please be patient as sometimes it takes up to 5 days
to process an application.
