found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Vera is so very, very special! She is a 2-year-old German Shepherd-mix (with, maybe, Sharpei, Husky, Boxer), who weighs approximately 52 pounds. Vera has a beautiful red coat, an adorable underbite, and the most expressive eyes. She is shy and a bit hesitant when first approached, but within minutes her tail begins to wag and it goes in circles. Before you know it, she'll press her body against yours.
For the four hours Vera and I hung together, she did not make a peep. She was non-reactive when we walked by the cat cages, and at the small-dog pen, she sniffed and licked the little dogs and none of them appeared threatened by her. Not so sure about the birds that landed on the ground. When that happened, Vera suddenly got some pep in her step.
Vera seemed to really like children and would walk over to greet those in the area. Towards the end of the day, Vera discovered a toy and I could see she has a playfulness in her that wants to be unlocked. She is very treat-motivated and eager to please.
Vera entered the shelter as a stray on December 18. Apparently, she has a microchip, but her humans never came for her. Please help her find a family/individual that will help alleviate her fear of abandonment, keep her as an indoor pet so she can snuggle, take her on walks, and shower her with love and affection. Vera is a gem! What you give to her, she'll return tenfold.
