~~HI!!! My name is Prancer and I am three and the sweetest girl that you will ever meet. If there is an inherent GSD quality I probably have it! I’m really smart and once I open up all I want is lots of love. I’ve been through a lot in my life as my vet record shows, but I don’t let the ugly in my past hold me back and I have no medical issues now. The first couple of days with my foster dad I wouldn’t hop on any furniture because I was so shy. When I felt comfortable hopping on the sofa, my foster dad didn’t even mind. Now I cuddle almost every night when it’s bed time and on the sofa when I’m really tired. Furthermore, I’m the bomb in a crate and love to do work. I stay in the crate while my human is at work, but if given proper guidelines I would do well out. I have been trusted in the whole place for a short period of time like two to three hours. One third of my food is used for treats. I always hear my foster dad say, "The food drive is strong with this one!", whatever that's supposed to mean. I know "sit" and "down" and am working on "stand". I know my name and can do a pretty good stay and recall if properly motivated. Tugs are really cool and I LOVE a ball. I’m a chewer and a nibbler if you grab my paws, but I don't nibble hard. Did I mention that swimming is kind of my thing too? In case you didn’t know, I have super powers, such as not trying to act like a human, and not barking at everything. With all of that I still have a kryptonite: vacuums. I just feel like they are on this planet to harm you so I will defend you by scaring it into submission. I like all of human kind, but if I meet a dog, it better know from the start that I'm in charge. I would do well with no dogs or a very submissive male and very structured introductions. I’ve learned that they are just objects in the surroundings so I don’t go looking for any kind of fight. My foster trusts me to drag a leash, and when around distractions, a longer lead for a little extra security. With good work and time I would be great off leash, but still need time to get things just perfect. Turns out I question why foster dad wants me to come back to him every now and then so I take my time or ignore him to smell the flowers. Overall I stay pretty close to my foster dad, but am still pretty independent. When I get food in a bowl I know I’m not supposed to rush you or the bowl until you say it’s ok for me to eat. In all, I am a beautiful shepherd that would do well with a new shepherd owner or even an experienced one. I’m middle of the road in energy or maybe even a little lower. By the way, I'm 5’ 6” , have black and tan hair and love long walks on the beach… Wait, wrong website! If you think you can offer me my furever home, please work with your adoption coordinator or fill out an application at southeastgermanshepherdrescue.com. I'm being fostered in Greenville, NC.
