My story

Darra is large 9 year old German Shepherd Dog (85 lbs). Darra was initially rescued when she was about a year old (2013) and has made the move from Chicago to Dallas! Darra will develop a strong bond with her human and focus most of her attention on them. She loves going on walks and chasing squirrels in the backyard. She walks well on a leash and obeys simple commands. While Darra is tolerant of young kids, she would be better suited in a home with older children. Darra loves attention and will constantly ask for pets!
