Adoptable Dog Of The Week – Sheba

Say “Hello” to Sheba, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. Sheba is an adult female German Shepherd from Montgomery, Alabama. She’s already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sheba’s Story:

Sheba is sweet and a little shy. She was picked up as a stray and taken to a local shelter. Sheba just completed heartworm treatment and is ready for adoption. She is a quiet dog and quite mellow. We don’t know how she is with children; she has not been around any since joining the rescue. She is just a love bug.

We have discovered that Sheba needs to be in a multi-dog family. She does not do well as the only dog, even with a full time parent at home. She can get into mischief so needs to have some guidance. Sheba probably plays too rough with little dogs (she is stocky) so she would do better in a home with big dogs. We are pretty sure Sheba was an outside dog and probably just used for breeding, so she is trying hard to learn what it means to be part of a family. She is full of love, and with patience, she will be a wonderful pet.
