Riley is 2 years old and was given up by her former family because they said there were too many dogs in the house. She was surrendered to the shelter with her brother who she was very attached to. He was adopted separately, and since has been learning to find her independence. Riley went through a few foster homes because she has a lot of energy and didn’t handle meeting lots of new people very well. Her current foster family says she needs a home with GSD experience and a fenced in yard, preferably a privacy fence. She thrives on structure, guidance and a routine. Riley is a really amazing dog when she is given direction, like many GSDs. She likes to play with other dogs and would love an active brother to play with. She has two foster brothers now that she really loves! She’s been around cats her whole life and young children, though she’d do best with older children in her forever home so they can be consistent with her training as well. Riley is crate trained, knows commands like sit, down, heel and the place command (though sometimes Riley forgets what place means). Riley has been working on her leash obedience as well and has been doing great. Riley’s current foster family is open to meeting with potential adopters and working some training sessions so you can better understand how she learns. It will take some time for Riley to warm up to a new family because it’s scary when for a dog that’s lost their home and never experienced much outside of it. Riley loves to go for walks, play fetch, and she’s food motivated! She would make a wonderful companion for someone looking for an active dog.
