Female 3 years
Beverly is a 3 year old purebred German Shepherd Dog. Her unusual beauty is not typical of most GSD but her DNA test shows that she’s 100%! Her coloring is maskless silver sable and is the result of a white mom and a tri-color dad. She has been with her current owners since she was 8 weeks old. She is spayed and chipped and is healthy and up to date on all of her shots. Her coat is thinner than most GSD and she doesn’t have a thick undercoat. This gives her a sleek appearance. Beverly is quiet and is aloof at first but once she accepts you then she wants to be at your side all the time. She warms up to women quickly but is cautious around men with beards and hats. She has a habit of sniffing guests in indelicate places. She is terrified of motorcycle noises and large noisy trucks. She never tries to run off or escape and generally stays right at my knees when I’m in the garden. She does not dig holes, trample plants or eat bees and is a well-behaved garden companion.
She’s completely housebroken, does not counter surf, table beg or chew anything other than her toys. She does not bark excessively except to let you know that there is someone at the door. She rides comfortably and quietly in the car. We find that a peanut butter stuffed kong is the best thing to keep her busy while we’re gone. She loves to bite at the water stream when you water plants. She knows basic commands like sit and wait, but needs additional work to make her the perfect companion. She’s very smart so she’ll learn quickly.
Needs a single dog household. Absolutely no small dogs. She has a high prey drive for rodents. She is fine with chickens. Cats are situational; She’s OK with mellow cats but will go after defensive or running ones. Her new owner should be dog savvy with large working breeds. She should not be taken to dog parks as she is dog aggressive.
Beverly has been well loved and cared for her entire life. She has been raised in a multi-dog household but circumstances developed as she matured which puts our other dogs safety as a concern. We are rehoming her at the advice of a respected professional dog behaviorist. We would ask that anyone interested in taking her in is vetted by our behaviorist to ensure that it’s a good fit.
