Seven-month-old German Shepherd Trixie is absolutely gorgeous. She’s also a bull in a china shop.
Trixie is exuberant and super-friendly and very energetic — and has no manners at all. She jumps, she pulls, she plays roughly with other dogs (which she thoroughly enjoys, but the other dogs may not). Trixie needs an adopter who is either experienced with the breed or able to ensure that she is appropriately trained to become a fabulous companion. There’s an awesome dog inside, just waiting to emerge with the right guidance.
Trixie was a stray, transferred to us from another shelter, so we don’t have a background or history on her. We don’t know whether she’s lived with cats in the past, but would advise anyone to proceed very carefully.
All that said, Trixie is a hoot. She LOVES water, and we can’t get her out of our wading pools outside. She loves to stomp around in them, making huge splashes and dunking her toys under the surface. She’s not the least bit shy and gives a huge, happy greeting to everyone she meets. Are you the special someone who can help Trixie be both free-spirited and a model citizen?
