~~Tatiana is a one year old active dog that was adopted as a puppy last year and is now back in rescue. Through a DNA test, we know she includes the following breeds: GSD, chow chow, chihuahua, and American Staffordshire terrier. She weighs 40 pounds and is a very light shedder compared to the heavy shedding of German Shepherds. She loves to ride in the car and can travel for very long periods of time because she sleeps in the car. She is extremely agile, and is a great frisbee dog. Tatiana would make an excellent pet for someone who wants a frisbee dog or someone who wants to work on agility. She cleans up very easy due to her short, sleek coat. Tatiana loves to run, run, run, play with other dogs that she trusts, and loves to play ball. She is house trained and has been left up to 6.5 hours in the house with no problems. She does not ruin or chew things when left alone. She sleeps by the window, waiting for her people to come home. She does not beg for food and has never been a “counter-surfer.” Tatiana really loves her family and loves to snuggle. She knows basic obedience, but like a lot of young dogs, may take a moment to pay attention to what you are asking. She knows “sit,” “down,” “come,” “stay,” and door etiquette. She has learned to walk well on a leash, but sometimes gets overstimulated by smells and noises. She has completed 2, 5-week basic adolescent obedience classes, a puppy class, and several private training sessions.
Although Tatiana is great with her people, when a stranger comes in the door, there is a lot of barking and growling, and it can take her quite a while to get out of the “red zone." Because of this, it is recommended that she have another dog in the home to avoid this stress. Tatiana also struggles with insecurity when she is taken away from her home to an unfamiliar place. Her insecurity leads her to bark and growl at dogs and people. Once she gets to know a dog, though, she is an amazing playmate. Because of Tatiana's reactivity to new people, training will be required by the adopter. Interested in adopting Tatiana? Please complete an application at southeastgermanshepherdrescue.com or work with your adoption coordinator. Tatiana is being fostered in Brevard, NC.
