Hi! I’m Leighna. I’m a 70 pound GSD mix and I’m about 4 years old. 

I’m a a super sweet, playful girl and I  like to play with stuffies and balls. I have a great nose and will use it when out on walks to find yummy bits of food that humans tend to leave behind - yeah, I know, but I can't help myself. I LOVE cuddling up with my person and am fine just hanging out or taking a long hike or ride in the car - whatever you want to do. So why am I still looking for a home? Well, I didn't get a lot of love in my prior home and when I do bond with someone, I bond HARD and will only have eyes for you!!  You see, I love my person so much that when I'm at home I want them mostly to myself. I have been ok with some other family members but I really want to be YOUR dog only and I can get too protective if someone else gets too close. I can gladly go into my crate when company is over and I do great in the house when left alone. I wouldn't think of destroying anything and making my person unhappy!!  I also prefer women (sorry all you nice men out there). I am totally housebroken and I don't mind other dogs or CATS. I am friendly with everyone when out and about and have great leash manners. I don't bark and carry on when I see another dog and I ride nice in the car. HOWEVER, someone was a little rough with me when taking me out of the car and I need to trust you first or I get scared when I have to get out. Once or twice to let me know you will be kind and gentle and we're good. I was very friendly with the vet and staff and they gave me lots of praise for being such a good patient. 

I hope to experience lots of new things with my person that will keep me busy and engaged but at first I should be allowed to settle in gradually and without pressure. I would really benefit from fun group training classes with my new person as well. I love to please and I will be your devoted best friend. 

If you’d like to meet me, I’ll be waiting with my friends in Windsor.
