Mika has been adopted! 06-02-2016

Female German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Not for homes with kids. Not cat friendly. Homes with no other dogs.

Meet Mika!

This little girl came to us after being abandoned. She had been starved and had skin issues and ear infections. With good basic medical care and steady feeding she has overcome her medical challenges. She is now a healthy weight, has a thick glossy coat and her ears are now healthy.

It seems clear she will be on the small side but she doesn't think so. She loves to go for walks, is learning her basic obedience and has learned that people can be a lot of fun. She still needs a lot of guidance and a strong leader to help her learn all the things she was denied as a young pup. She is smart and energetic and a very quick study in the training department. To continue Mika's progress, we will only place her in a home that has a strong background working with GSDs.

Mika needs to be adopted by an experienced German Shepherd owner so she can continue to get the leadership and guidance she needs. She has made friends with many men, women and even older kids. Mika is very food and toy motivated. She would do best to be in an only dog household unless the adopter is experienced in introducing a new dog and is willing to go at a pace that is comfortable for Mika. Due to her high energy, a household with young children, cats or small dogs would not be appropriate.

She is 100% crate trained and well on the way to being house trained.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
