Story
Macy is an adorable young girl just over 2 years of age who is believed to be a Shepherd Cattle dog mix. Macy came from a rural part of Kentucky where she was live-trapped after being born to a pack of Shepherds that were free-roaming on a farm. Macy had zero human contact prior to being trapped and has been very slow to warm up. She is considered semi-feral at this point and is still overcoming her fears.   Macy prefers to avoid all human contact but has begrudgingly learned how to walk on a leash and tolerate being handled for daily living. Macy is a fear biter and if cornered - such as when she is in her crate and needs to come out - she will lash out in fear. If you move slowly with Macy she settles down and will allow you to handle her but she gets overwhelmed easily when rushed. Macy is going to require extensive ongoing handling, training, and socialization coupled with lots of patience as she continues to grow and bond. Macy has made great progress in her foster home and can be handled by all occupants while she is both on leash and off leash. She enjoys going on hikes around their property - she is still learning to not hate the car which would allow for hiking in new places - and romping in the creek near their yard. Macy does not do well with children which she views as small cattle to be herded - she will nip the back of their legs if left loose with children and will bark at them from her crate. She has been slowly learning to interact while on leash with an 8 year old that visits her foster frequently but would not be recommended for a home with children under 13 years of age. Macy is crate trained and relies on her crate to provide her a safe space to be when she overwhelmed or cannot be supervised. Macy does okay in the house while supervised but does like to chew - she has an expensive taste for cell phones and shoes - and cannot be left loose unattended.    Macy connects with other dogs much better than she does people as a result of her early life in a pack. She does well meeting new dogs and is quick to follow their lead. She loves to romp with the other dogs in her foster home and has learned to meet new foster siblings well. Macy can play rough and uses her smaller size to her advantage taking out the bigger dogs legs while rough housing. She also enjoys chase games as she can run underneath things to hide from the bigger dogs if they get to be too much for her. Macy does live with a cat that she does okay with but she will pester the cat at times and has chased it a couple of times. Macy probably would be great with a cat that is active or likes to run around the house as she is more likely to try to chase it than she is a more sedentary cat.   Macy has a sweet soul and is trying her best to overcome her fears and bond with the people around her. Macy is searching for a home that can provide her a stable environment and ongoing work as she continues to grow beyond her past. Macy will likely take between 3 - 6 months to settle into a new home and is going to require a steady commitment from her future home to her ongoing journey.

Story
Zoey is a beautiful young sable German Shepherd female estimated around 3 years of age. Zoey was a stray and we unfortunately do not know her history but Zoey is happily looking forward to having a family of her own.    Zoey is a playful and rambunctious young girl. Her favorite activities include playing in muddy ponds, getting all the love, and inappropriately barking at unknown dogs and people. Zoey is learning how to navigate the world and make new human friends. While Zoey can be a very friendly and social girl she is at a critical point in her life known as the 'fear period' and can struggle with reactivity when meeting new people. It is extremely important that Zoey have a confident, experienced, handler that can compassionately guide her through the safe socialization she needs in order to learn how to navigate the world kindly. Zoey is very much a puppy and while eager to please she is still figuring out what is expected of her and how to rise to those expectations. Zoey has been great meeting volunteers with the guidance of her foster home and with those she knows is a very loving, playful girl. She has enjoyed going on hikes around private property and exploring ponds and mud puddles. Zoey is an active and athletic girl who is going to require ongoing exercise and structure to ensure her growth into a well rounded adult Shepherd. Zoey would be a great running companion, hiking buddy, and would likely excel in a number of dog sports. Zoey is NOT suitable for a home with children at this time.    Zoey is still figuring out other dogs and how to interact in a polite manner. Zoey can be very vocal when she meets new dogs and was defensive with other dogs when she arrived at her foster home. She has since settled in and is able to enjoy playgroups with other young Shepherds as well as group hikes. Zoey is slowly figuring out that she can play appropriately and doing a great job. Zoey will require ongoing structured socialization and guidance to maintain her progress as she is at an age of development where her socialization both in and out of the house is vital. Zoey is NOT friendly with cats or small dogs as she has shown a very high prey drive with both.    Zoey is a young, eager to please, and outgoing Shepherd who is searching for an active, loving, and adventurous home to give her the guidance and love she needs to grow into an even more wonderful companion.

Story
Layla is a stunning female German Shepherd who is estimated around 5 years of age. Layla was a stray therefore we do not know her history or background prior to arrival at the shelter.     Layla is a fun girl who doesn't seem to understand the purpose of humans outside of meal times. She is aloof and generally seems to not understand why the other dogs would bother with human attention - after all humans are only good for their opposable thumbs. Layla defaults to ignoring people unless solicited for attention in which case she is happy to entertain her adoring fans. Layla has a diva energy about her and definitely thinks she runs the shows sometimes. Layla does not typically seek attention or playtime and prefers to chill out and do her own thing.  Layla has had very limited interactions with children at this time but has done well with the few she has met.        Layla is fostering with other dogs and enjoys being the bossy supervisor of anything they do. She tends to ignore the dogs 98% of the time but in the instance that she catches them playing or being too energetic she is quick to be the fun police. Her version of fun is being the fun police it seems and most dogs do not appreciate her reprimands. She gets along well with the more laid back dogs and those that tolerate her controlling nature. She would likely prefer being an only dog or with older, laid back, dogs. Layla is not good with cats or small dogs.        Layla is a beautiful girl who is looking for a patient home that will guide her in becoming a loved family member.
