MELLIE is a GORGEOUS cream and black coated young German Shepherd. She was recently surrendered by her owner due to her unpredictability around the livestock and small animals on the property. She's hoping to find her forever home in time to celebrate the holidays!
Mellie has spent the last year living mostly outdoors, so is now getting a crash course in good doggie manners! She's learning how to behave properly as an indoor girl. She is incredibly sweet, and can be reserved with strangers, but warms up quickly.
Mellie was surrendered due to her high prey drive, so no small dogs, cats, or other small animals can be in her forever home. She was reportedly going after livestock as well, so Mellie will need to call herself a city girl, rather than living life on a farm. When introducted properly to other dogs, she does pretty well -- proper introductions are key!
No known medical issues.
Stay tuned for more information on Mellie as we get to know her better!
