Meet Venus

Venus was adopted from GSR in 2019 and is unfortunately looking for a new home. Originally, she came to us as a cruelty case when she was found abandoned with no access to food or water. She is about 4 years old and a little overweight - her ideal weight is around 75 lbs. Venus is housebroken and crate trained. She lives with a male shepherd and was previously foster with other dogs. She tends to be a typical bossy female that loves to be the center of attention. Like many shepherds, she can take time to warm up to new people, but once she does, she is a sweetheart! Her new adoptive home will receive lifetime behavioral and training support through Safe Humane Chicago.

Venus is good with children, but would do best with older children that will respect her space. She needs mental and physical stimulation like any shepherd or she can get herself into trouble (stealing food dan be fun!), Venus will need an adopter committed to training with her so that she doesn’t find herself in rescue again. She knows basic commands but is very strong on leash. She can be anxious at times with nail trims, vet visits, storms and fireworks.

This sweet, intelligent her has been through a lot in her life and is so deserving a committed forever home!
