Gia is a female German Shepherd around 5 years of age. Gia was kept as a backyard dog and struggles with barrier reactivity. She was surrendered to the shelter after getting out of her yard and nipping a jogger.
Gia is a very sweet, loyal girl who is learning how to expand her social circle. Gia adores those she knows and has been an outgoing, friendly girl with all of the volunteers she has met. Gia thinks she is a lap dog and loves to get attention - especially butt scratches. Gia is generally a well mannered girl but does struggle with barrier reactivity around her crate and fences. She can be a pretty vocal, wild girl in this situations but calms down quickly once out or redirected. Gia has not been around children to our knowledge.
Gia does great with the other dogs in her foster home. She is appropriate and friendly with the other dogs although she isn't very playful. She isn't one to romp or roughhouse that we've seen but she does a great job navigating the other dogs in the yard. Gia has NOT been cat tested.
Gia is a big, loving girl who is looking for an experienced home that can help her continue to grow her social circle and improve on her FOMO when crated. If you're the home for her email us at Tierhavenrescue@gmail.com or visit Tierhaven.rescuegroups.org for FAQs
