Tasha's Story...
Tasha is a healthy mature female with gorgeous black and tan coloring who came to GSRNE from a shelter. Sadly, Tasha was surrendered to the shelter because her owners were losing their home. She had been with her family for her whole life and at ten-years-old, this upheaval had the potential to be a very difficult adjustment for a GSD. Yet, despite the disruption in her life, she remains resilient and ready to find a home where she can bond with a new family and show how much she has to offer.

Tasha is a very sweet and confident dog that is eager to please her person. She is youthful in looks and nature. Always ready to play at a moment’s notice, her foster family remarks on her comical and youthful nature. Tasha appears much younger than her years when it comes time to play with her rope, or ball. These toys, along with her Kong, and stuffed toys are her favorite things. Tasha’s antics will make you chuckle and she seems to have a twinkle in her eye as she chases down her Kong or ball.

Tasha’s manners are excellent. She continually looks to her person for direction and patiently waits to see what you are going to do next with her. On-leash, she pulls a little and sometimes walks too fast, but she is learning to heel better. Tasha loves people and is very happy to greet people she meets when out on a walk. However, other dogs have a tendency to make her reactive and on-leash she will bark and lunge at other dogs. Tasha’s foster family is working on making her more comfortable and secure when greeting other dogs, but it is work hers adoptive home will need to continue. Whe has demonstrated her willingness to meet other dogs in another setting and may do well with a male dog after a slow introduction. During her evaluation, part of Tasha’s testing consisted of an introduction to another dog. Although initially reluctant, she warmed up to the male after a couple of attempts at a greeting.

Tasha is a dream in the car and loves to go for rides. However, she has demonstrated uneasiness when people approach the car and she will bark in response. She shows similar behavior at home when someone comes to the door. She will bark at visitors, but will settle down and wag her tail as soon as her person assures her that she need not be unsure of the situation.

Tasha is crate trained which will help her transition into her forever home. A fenced in yard would be great for her since, even at ten, she is still active and loves her ball. Tasha appreciates daily exercise, but she does get tired so shorter walks are good for her. She would be a great fit for someone who appreciates all of the great traits of a GSD, but who may be looking for a more mature dog that does not require as much exercise.

Tasha tends to really bond with her person and she will continually look to her person for direction and assurance. An ideal home would be with someone who can really spend some quality time with her and help her regain her comfort-level in situation such as meeting new dogs and door greetings. Tasha is eager to please and will flourish in a home that provides her structure and security. Is that yours?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tasha, a Wayland German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Wayland, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Wayland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wayland already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Wayland breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wayland paves the way for another one to be saved.
