Meet Verina

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

-Personality: Intelligent, loyal, playful, anxious
-Can Live with Kids: No, Verina needs an adult-only home.
-Can Live with Cats: No history, will need slow, supervised intro.
-Can Live with Dogs: Verina is very dog-selective and needs to be an "only child". She is not going to be a dog that can visit dog parks.
-Can do Apartment Living: No
-Potty Trained: Appears to be!
-Bite History: No
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes. Depending on adopter experience, Verina will be required to sign up for 1-3 private lessons.
-Energy Level: High
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes-- spay/microchip.
-Additional Information: Verina is a sensitive Shepherd who has come a long way since she first arrived at the shelter. When we first met her, she was incredibly fearful/anxious. She shrieked in fear anytime a leash came close to her, and took over a week to be comfortable with basic handling. We've been working very hard at helping her learn to trust again, and she's making progress every single day! Verina will need a patient adopter who can continue working with her to create positive associations with the world around her. A quiet, low-traffic home will be ideal for her-- she would not thrive in a busy home with lots of coming and going. Verina is used to being around her person all the time, and may be destructive when left alone. Verina is a diamond in the "ruff" with tons of potential to be a wonderful companion to the right home. Fill out an application to see if Verina's the girl for you!
