Chiqui is an affectionate 1.5 year old female German Shepherd who came into rescue because her owner was moving and could not find a rental that allows dogs. She is a moderate sized dog who weighs 70 pounds. She is well socialized, has attended doggy day care and in her former home was a regular at a dog park.

She is house trained, and knows how to use a dog door. She rides well crated in the back of a truck and does not get sick when traveling over mountain roads. She is kennel trained and crate trained. She eats her meals in a crate will stay quietly until she is released. When her person is at home she has fairly good manners inside the house. When she is excited she will occasionally put her paws on a counter or jump onto a chair or a bed, but she is learning this is not appropriate.

She walks well on leash when wearing a prong collar. She has a soft mouth when taking treats. She will sit on command and is pretty consistent with the down command. She has a strong toy drive and enjoys playing with a variety of toys, especially balls. This girl is smart and should be relatively easy to train since she wants to please and is both toy and food motivated.

Chiqui does have some puppyish traits. She will occasionally chew inappropriate items, but only when she is left on her own. In her new home it would be ideal if she could attend a basic training class to brush up her skills. Like any young dog it is important that Chiqui gets plenty of exercise and mental stimulation.

This girl is ready to play and be loved, and she should fit right in to many situations. Her former owner told us that although she will bark at cats that she does not try to hurt them, so she may be cat workable too.

In her foster home Chiqui has lived with both male and female GSDs and got along with both dogs. She is a rough and tumble player who likes to chase and be chased. Chiqui can be pushy for attention so if she moves to a home with a resident dog her owner will need to work on her manners to prevent possible jealousy issues.

She has a moderate energy level for a young Shepherd and will do best in an active/social family where she gets to go on outings with her owners. She would love to have an appropriate dog friend. Overall, Chiqui is a sweet and loving youngster who should make a nice companion for a family with large breed experience. She appears to have an exceptional temperament and should bring her lucky adopter many years of joy.

Chiqui is living with a male German Shepherd at a foster home in La Honda.
