German Shepherd Dog

Medium • Adult • Female

Up-to-date with routine shots • Prefers a home without: dogs, cats

Duchess is around 4 yrs old and she is an easy dog to care for and is one happy little girl. She can do short walks, enjoys car rides and loves her squeaky tennis balls. She has good house manners but is also crate trained. She already knows her basic commands and is highly food motivated to learn more. Duch is a very sensitive little girl and we think to much activity can scare her so a quiet home would be best. She has pannus in one eye and does require eye drops twice a day. It is best to not have her out in the sun during mid afternoon hours unless she is wearing her doggles, it is cloudy out or she has plenty of shade. But in all honesty, she loves to be wherever you are and if that is inside watching tv she is okay with that. Duch has a very high prey drive and can not live with small furry critters like cats. And even though she is ok on walks with other dogs around she is not so good in the home with them. She would love to be your only pet so she can give you all of her love and attention. If you can open your home and give this sweetheart a new life, she would be furever grateful. Duchess had a tough life on the streets and if you would like to read her story, please copy this link Please visit our website at to complete an online application.

The brief descriptions we have posted about our dogs are based on our observations and interactions with them since coming to our rescue. We will take our dogs out into public areas to watch their behaviors around strangers and other pets while walking them. We also place them in a daycare facility to ensure that they are sociable with other dogs and if not, which dogs they do not perform well around, such as small dogs or another large breed. When available, we place our dogs in a foster home to observe their house manners and help them to trust people again. If we observe bad behaviors we work with them to correct behaviors such as jumping on furniture or paws on the counters. There will be times that we will not be able to provide the answers to some of your questions – like are they good with children or cats – especially rescued dogs found as strays with little or no background. Even though we spend as much time as possible interacting with all our dogs, and they behave a certain way when with us, German Shepherd Rescue of the Rockies cannot guarantee their future behavior with their new families.
