Meet Sadie

Hi, my name is Sadie! Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: HIGH ENERGY, active, playful, independent, intelligent
-Can Live with Kids: Kids ages 16+ (no young children - I am jumpy/mouthy and sensitive to some handling)
-Can Live with Cats: No, I have a history of chasing cats (common for my breed)
-Can Live with Dogs: No, I was surrendered for not getting along with the female dog in my previous home. I'd prefer to be the "only child" who gets all of your attention! I should NOT go to dog parks.
-Can do Apartment Living: No, I am much too active and might be a bit vocal when left alone
-Potty Trained: Yes
-Bite History: No
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, 1 - 3 private lessons depending on adopter experience
-Energy Level: High high HIGH!!!!
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes, a spay/MC

Additional Information: Sadie is a high energy pup looking for an active person/family able to keep up with her! She is always on the go-go-go and would do best in a home where her person is present more often than not - otherwise, she is going to become very bored and potentially destructive. Sadie hasn't had any formal training, but we think she would benefit greatly from some consistency and a routine. Luckily she's smart and food-motivated, which should make training a lot easier.

German shepherd experience is not required for adoption, but we are requiring previous dog experience (experience with high energy breeds/working dogs is a plus!).
