Please watch a short video of Shadow below:
07/25/17 19:20 Shadow endeared herself to us from the start by sweetly seeking attention and appeasingly showing us her belly for
rubbing. She fetches balls, dropped them at the assessor''s feet, and made no complaints about the assessor taking the ball out of
her mouth as part of the assessment (We normally recommend trading for another toy or a treat). She did not guard food during her
assessment from humans, either. Walking through the shelter, Shadow wanted to greet many people, women and men, and did so quietly
without jumping on them. She initially wouldn''t bark at other dogs in the kennels, but has started, which happens pretty often with
German Shepherds in kennels. During her dog introductions, Shadow would bark at other dogs at a fence and on leash to some extent,
but once we dropped the leashes, she co-existed well with an intact male Husky in the yard and did pretty well with a small intact
male poodle on leash. During her assessment, she didn''t bark when being walked around the block. She was tolerant of having her feet
handled, teeth checked, and enjoyed being pet. She does not seem like an extremely high energy or highly vigilant shepherd, but
she''ll still need daily exercise. CJB
