Shannon is a gorgeous GSD about 5 years old. She came to QAS in mid-February after her owner lost his home. Shannon had been with him since she was a small puppy so this has been a difficult transition for her. As is typical for GSD’s, she is cautious of new people until she gets to know them, but once she knows them she is as loyal as they come. Shannon is a sensitive girl who can be overwhelmed in the shelter. Shannon is on anxiety meds to help her here, but once in a stable home she hopefully will not need them. She was having some joint stiffness but is responding to meds. Shannon needs a cat free home. She is curious about dogs but needs slow introductions as she gets nervous with new dogs. Loud noises, like motorcycles, do scare her. Shannon initially was standoffish with the QAS volunteers, but over the past 5 months she has learned to trust them and now they take her on excursions to the beach and other fun activities. She is a joy of a dog. Shannon has had some training, listens well and is very well mannered. Shannon would thrive in a home with someone who understands the German Shepherd breed and also understands a dog who has had a major loss of her person. With time and love, Shannon will give it all back to her new person tenfold. Are you Shannon’s new best friend?
