Meet Susan, mom to the Irish litter! She and her babies were found on the side of the road and brought to a rural animal shelter. Susan was an exceptional mama, but those days are over! She has been spayed is ready for her forever home! She is around 2-3 years old and 55 lbs so she is more of a “compact” pup. Her foster dad is confident she's a GSD/Lab mix. Susan is house trained, crate trained, reasonable on a leash, rides well in a car, takes treats gently and has gained some much-needed weight since weaning her pups. Susan was determined to get her pre-puppy body back and through a rigorous regiment of Yoga, wrestling and ball chasing, you can't even tell she had puppies. Very smart, bonds quickly, learns instantly, wants to know and be part of everything going on and is very sweet, lovable and cuddly. She LOVES playing with the young male GSD in her foster home and is good with other dogs. She loves to play with toys and has learned to fetch, but only with the Orange Ball. Anything else is beneath her. Susan will need someone who can slowly expose her to the world, as she is still unsure of new situations. She also needs someone who can take the time to let her know what they expect of her because if this uncertainty. With calm guidance, she has already become a much more confident and happy dog. With continued obedience and patience, she is going to blossom quickly. She may be small, but she takes her job of guard dog very seriously! In the house, she will require proper introductions to new people. Susan has a very high prey drive so she cannot go to a house with cats and she will require a fenced in yard. Susan is being fostered in Newport News, VA
