My name is Nyla. I’m a 5 year old girl GSD. I have a pretty, black and brown, long coat and I weigh about 80 pounds.

I’ll need an adopter who can spend time socializing me and who will continue my training. I know some basic commands, but more training will help me bond with my new family and help build my confidence.

I am feeling comfortable with my foster family but I was anxious at first. I haven’t been in a stable home for a while so I will be so happy to learn the ropes at my new home and settle in once and for all. My adopter should be patient with me as it may take me some time to settle in and understand that I can rely on my new family to keep me safe.

I’m very in-tune with my surroundings. Even though I have a high prey drive and like to chase squirrels, I’m a good listener and want to please my person. I’d probably chase the family cat so no cats for me please. I will bark at unfamiliar dogs if they get too close and I’m on leash; but as soon as I know they are not a threat I settle right down. I’m easily redirected.

I have lived with other dogs and with proper introductions will likely enjoy a canine sibling.

I really enjoy going in the car and do well being out and about.

I also walk nicely on leash and will make an awesome walking partner. I like being out in the open air with my person and looking at the sights.

Since a lot of my background is unknown and I’m still a bit unsure, I should probably not be with a family with young children.

I have very nice house manners and am a super snuggler.  And don’t worry - if I hear an unfamiliar noise and I’m in the house, I’ll warn you with a bark.

I’ll be waiting with my foster family in Placerville. Hope to meet you!
