Crystal Symphony is a beautiful female estimated between 2 and 3 years of age. She was found as a stray and has an unknown background. Her conformation and personality speak to a possible English Shepherd pedigree but that is a question we will never really know the answer to.
Crystal is a lovely girl who enjoys herding people and dogs in the yard, romping in the house, and getting attention when it pleases her. She can be reserved with new people and seems to be more weary in new situations. She may take a few minutes - plus a walk with treats - to warm up but once she does she is a very affectionate and sweet girl. Crystal is best described as 'gamey' which is to say she sees nearly everything as a fun game and is always looking for something to get into. Given socialization and confidence she would make an amazing advanced obedience or dog sport prospect. Crystal can easily jump a 4 ft fence and happily does so to switch play groups at her foster home. She is an athletic and energetic girl who will need either leash walked or a solid fence to ensure her safety. Crystal is not comfortable around children at this time.
Crystal is around other dogs in her foster home and does very well. She has a bossy personality and likes to try to round up the other dogs but they tolerate her well. She has a few that she enjoys roughhousing with and overall seems to have a good understanding of dog social manners. Crystal is well mannered and quiet when meeting new dogs while out on walks. Crystal has met some GSD puppies around 10 lbs and thought they were strange little playmates but ultimately did great with them. She has had one cat brief interaction with a cat that went well but would need further cat testing before going into a new home with cats.
Crystal is an active and adventurous young Shepherd who is looking for a family that will help her learn to trust the world and show her all the fun sides of life.
