My name is Heli and am I a 2.5 year old German Shepherd X. My foster family loves me and I have to say I feel the same. They say I am a very quick study and super cuddly! I boned quickly to my family and to my new foster family and I am super protective of them. I growl, bark and sometimes charge when anyone comes near them, especially when they are new to me, or moving around the room. My foster family is working with me to be less anxious and less reactive when I first meet people. They are also helping me everyday to be calm and confident. When I am anxious and uncertain of my surroundings I will pace, bark, and sometimes growl. While I have come along way, my environment must be calm, controlled, structured and routine, so that I can continue to learn new ways to deal with stressful situations and become more sure of myself. I need a very knowledgable and patient owner who will exercise me both mentally and physically everyday. I would do best in a home that has experience with German Shepherds. My foster family is working on exposing me to new dogs and people. When approached properly I am ok with some dogs, mostly females, after the initial introduction. I don't really to play with other dogs and on occasion may try and nip them.
While I can be over protective, reactive and what some people would describe as aggressive, I am working hard everyday with my foster family to get ready for my forever home. It will be very important that my forever family understands my issues, has some knowledge in force free training and is committed to working with me to reach my potential of an amazing, loyal and loving companion.
