TESS: 5mo, 25lbs ( as of 6/28), Lab/Shep Mix, Spayed Female, High Active, Estimated to be 45 to 50lbs Full Grown

Who's ready for more puppies? Our T litter is coming in hot and looking for thier forever humans! These pups are working on thier puppy skills - potty training, basic commands and figuring out what thier tails do. They love to wrestle, play with toys and zoom around. After they have tired themselves out (and often their humans too) they are ready to be all cuddly and have some puppy dreams. These puppies are going to be about 45 to 50lbs full grown. They need high active homes that can be dedicated to a minimum of 90 minutes a day of exercise. Their owners will need to be ready to do puppy training, we're big fans of professional puppy classes whether it be virtual or in person. With the right amount of socialization and training these little heart breakers are going to be the best dogs ever. They are not a good match for kids under 10 years old as they will be going through intense teething phases. Adopters need to have primary dog ownership experience (more than just growing up with dogs) as they guys will keep you on your toes. Tess would be happiest in a home outside of city. Please note we can not guarantee breed mix nor full grown size :) Interested in adopting? Please go to www.socialteesnyc.org

Her Foster Says: "Tess is the sweetest little love bug around. Weighing in at 25 lbs she still loves to sit on the couch and snuggle up next to you. On a hot summer day she enjoys playing with/munching on ice cubes. Tess has spent time around other dogs - she loves to play with them, as well as children and babies. She is very gentle, licking toes and stealing socks. Tess loves playing with tennis balls and chewing on bully sticks. Everyone who meets her falls in love with her adorable happy spirit. She is crate trained and sleeps through the night, as well as easily going in her crate whenever we leave the house. She'd be a perfect puppy companion to another dog or for a kid looking for their new best friend!"

What is a Shepherd?: A shepherd is considered a type of working dog. They were originally used to herd sheep. They are known for their intelligence, trainability and obedience. For this reason they are often used for disability, assistance, search and rescue and assistance to police and military. Due to their intelligence, it is important to keep this type of pup mentally stimulated weather that be long walks, training or fun games such as fetch.

What does owning this dog entail?: It's going to be very important to keep this pup medium to high energy canine busy both physically and mentally -- that includes a minimum of 90 minutes of outdoor time every day for this high energy dog. A perfect walking, hiking, and running buddy. We strongly recommend a basic training course to get a more solid feel for this pup's individual needs and how to best communicate with each other. A well trained dog is a happy dog.

PLEASE NOTE: This animal is not at the Social Tees office all of our dogs and cats are in foster homes while they wait to find their forever families. :) If you'd like to apply to adopt this pet, please complete an adoption application at socialteesnyc.org.
