Sasha has a short coat with very soft fur. She is a high energy girl, typical for her age. Still a puppy, she is crated at night and when her foster family are out. She is very good in the crate and housebroken. She plays well with medium and large sized canines. We don't believe she would be good with cats due to her breed mix.
Her ears are so cute and stand up, making her look a lot larger in pictures than she really is. She is focused and anxious to learn. She was found as a stray in a very rural area and we are sure she was starving. She is fed in a crate three times a day as she is still a pup.
Sasha is learning her manners. She has learned it is not okay to greet people by jumping up on them. Her recall is fantastic and can't decide whether to play with other dogs or follow her foster Mom around all day. She will be a very good watchdog.
She will love children, we are sure. At this age, older children would work better. Sasha will require leash training using a body harness. She enjoys having quick maps, though they are few, on the couches or chairs. She rides very well in a vehicle.
Sasha will require a family that is active and takes her with them for outdoor activities and walks. Continued socialization us important for shepherd mixes. She is incredibly intelligent and wants so badly to learn and impress her family. She is a working breed mix so she will require consistent stimulation. If another resident dog exists, we recommend it be a male . A fully fenced yard us mandatory.
Sasha is spayed and up to date with vaccines including Bordetella. She has been tested negative for heartworm, need dewormed and on one month flea and heartworm prevention. Sasha has also been dewormed.
