What a doll face! Have you ever seen Labrador ears on a German Shepherd? Everything else about Sweet Pea is a Shepherd, but those ears. Where did they come from?

Sweet Pea got her name because she is just adorable. She's the sweetest dog ever, just wanting to get and give some love.  She hasn’t yet seen a person she doesn’t want to meet, and when she wags her tail its so strong that her entire body goes with it!

Before coming into rescue Sweet Pea appears to have traveled a hard road. In the shelter her conditioning was very poor and it seems she may have gone for some time without regular feedings. She has a very strong food drive, possibly related to life on the road. Since coming to rescue she has been gaining weight and her fur now has a nice shine. 

This little girl did not have any training but she is quick to pick up on new things. She is good in the house and sleeps free at night on her dog bed. During the week when her foster mom is at work she has access to the house and yard and has not been destructive.

She quickly learned to sit and down for treats. She still needs help getting into a car but she enjoys going for rides and she doesn’t get sick when traveling over mountain roads. She likes toys and playing games. She will chase a ball and sometimes fetch, and she enjoys playing tug with a rope toy. 

Sweet Pea has a few training issues to work on. She has learned to stay off the counters but due to her food drive her foster mom continues to remove all temptation. 

She has a wonderful disposition with other full sized dogs, but she is overly exuberant when meeting new dogs, and her meeting style can be offensive. Her training should include a formal obedience class or routine group outings with other dogs. She has attended two pack walks with the Bay Area GS Meet Up group and has done very well. She is currently fostered with a rowdy male GSD. They run and play together and she often instigates the play. 

Sweet Pea spent Halloween evening with a toddler. She was good with the child but due to occasional jumping and general excitement we feel she would be best with children past the toddler stage.

Sweet Pea acts like a puppy, but we believe she's about 1.5 years old. She is just starting to blossom and once she's in her furever home she'll show even more of her personality. She's diamond in the ruff, well worth exploring. She's a love.
