    Maggie

    Female 2.4 years

    Maggie is an energetic and affectionate little darling. Golden State German Shepherd Rescue pulled her from the Kerman Animal Shelter. Found as a stray, her owners never came to look for her. So at five months of age, Maggie found herself on the adoption waiting list.She has been in foster care now over a year and is doing very well. She has had some obedience training and socialization in public places.  She is housebroken and crate-trained, and knows how to sit, stay, down and walk on a leash. She would also be a good walking or jogging companion.She has some anxiety around meeting new dogs, but gets along great with her one-year-old foster brother Buddy. They play and wrestle together and it is fun to watch. She is alert and alarm-barks when she hears unusual noises outside (good girl!) She is quick and agile, and will absolutely chase a cat when it runs. So she should therefore NOT be in a home with kitties. Maggie may benefit greatly living with another dog, an older but playful dog to show her the ropes.  Maggie would also do best with a patient, committed owner who will continue to work with her. This little girl is a gem! FOSTERED IN ACAMPO More
