Thank you Tracy Desiderio for sponsoring me! Woof!

Hi! I’m Bodhi. I am 8 years young and am a healthy sable GSD.  

I am a friendly girl looking for a family who would enjoy a mature, dignified companion. Trust me-my age doesn’t slow me down at all; I have plenty of energy.

I’m good with other dogs both big and small and also enjoy the dog park. Sometimes I’ll bark at dogs when I’m out for a walk but I just get excited. I don’t like other dogs coming near my food dish though and no cats for me please. I have a bit of a prey drive.

I have beautiful house manners and have even been to dog school; I have my obedience skills down pat. I am a good listener too. I don’t mind a crate and will go in when instructed to do so.

I am a confident happy girl and still have youngster type outbursts of excitement and really like to have fun. I will alarm bark when people come to the house and I’ll keep a watchful eye on my people when I’m out and about.

Don’t let my age fool you! I am definitely not a couch potato; I’m still active and would love a family to do things with. I’m a great “take anywhere” dog!  Despite my age, I’ll continue to need mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis. I would be great for someone who wants a young dog’s energy but a dog who conducts herself with restraint and maturity. I do need to lose a few pounds though and look forward to working on that with my new family. I know that's important for my continued good health.

Something you should know about me is that I’m quite self-assured and won’t tolerate ill-mannered behavior from kids or other dogs. Don’t get me wrong-I have a solid temperament; I’m just not a pushover.

I am good with respectful children and enjoy playing with them. I am also great in the car and love to go on road trips.

I hope you’d like to meet me!

This is a courtesy post and I’ll be waiting with my family in San Mateo.
