Meet Merah

Say hello to sweet Merah. Her name means "princess" and she defiantly is that but with a big side of sass! Merah was turned in to the shelter as a stray by someone who was suspected to be her owner. She was slightly reactive to humans due to fear. As soon as we got her out of the shelter setting she opened up and started loving life. She is good with other dogs as long as she is properly introduced. She will resource guard her human if allowed. Merah is happiest when she is with her human. She wants to work. She wants to run. She wants to be a good girl. When her human is around everything else fades. She is learning that fetch is fun and leaps like a gazelle to get the ball. She is extremely fast and agile. She is still timid on a leash and likes to circle her human when walking. She has quickly learned to go potty outside, kennel up, and sit. Merah is doing well with the cats. If anything she likes them touch. One cat in particular likes to play with her, the others find her quite annoying. She is good with kids although she does not know her size and is still a mouthy puppy. She will barrel right over a small child without even realizing that she did it. Her most favorite thing in the world besides running is snuggling up on the couch ON your lap. Once again she does not know her size. We would like to see Merah in an active home that will challenge her. She needs training, socialization, exercise, consistency, and stability. She would love a resident dog to play with. She will only be adopted out to an experienced GSD owner that has a plan to train her like she needs. Her foster home absolutely adores her and will only adopt her out to a home that checks all the boxes.
Her foster home is currently working on: leash walking, jumping, personal space, boundaries, resource guarding other dogs from human.
