Bear is a beautiful girl looking for a new home that must have experience with German Shepherds, and it would be ideal if there is experience of reactive dogs too. Bear gets on well with people but has is scared of other dogs. She would love a home in the countryside as she is used to that environment and would not be comfortable in busier areas.
Bear does have mild hip dysplasia and takes daily medication. This would be covered by our Food and Vet Fund for dogs we rehome with pre-existing conditions.**
Bear barks when visitors come to the house, when she hears strange noises and barks to get attention. This is another reason why Bear would ideally find a home in the country and not a flat. With strange dogs, she will bark and pull on the lead but this is out of fear; she will panic if a dog comes close to her. Bear is not comfortable living with another dog.
Bear can be left for a few hours but she suffers from separation anxiety and will howl if left alone. She is extremely excited when her owner returns. Bear is good in the car. She loves a good walk but has not been walked off-lead before due to her dog reactivity. She wears a harness and a muzzle on walks. She is used to having a big garden to freely run around in.
When at home with family, Bear is a very loving and happy dog that enjoys playing with her toys in the garden, getting attention and having company. She responds well to training and is generally very well behaved. She would do well in a home where she could learn tricks and skills such as tracking or mantrailing.
Bear is a super affectionate girl and loves being with people. She would be great for anyone who has German Shepherd experience and has the time to spend with her.
**FOOD AND VETERINARY TREATMENT FUND: This fund allows DAS to cover costs of pre-existing conditions once a dog has been rehomed. This means we will cover costs for vet treatment if the dog has a condition before it comes to stay with you. In this case we will covers costs relating to Bear’s hip dysplasia within reason.
