Indy is 6 years old, not spayed but in season May, microchipped and vaccinations have been restarted. We were asked to take her in from a local council having been picked up as a stray. Her microchip was still registered to a trainer who said he gave up a while back and can’t remember who had the dogs! From her chip however we were able to track back to the original rescue she went into where she had been handed in 2014.
Indy had been living with 8 children and not surprisingly was anxious and would bark. Lived with a young Spaniel and another GSD but struggled with Spaniel’s antics and kept nipping the GSD’s back legs. More a problem of knowing how to interact with other dogs, but of course this was all a few years ago now. She was actually sent to a working outlet.
Indy is overweight at present and has been no problem with any of the staff or volunteers. Due to the gap in her history she would be best in an adult home who has GSD experience to handle any unknowns that may crop up.
The volunteers describe Indy as a friendly girl who plays lovely with a ball and enjoys a fuss. She is strong on the lead at first but this is probably pent up energy from being in kennels but will then walk nicely.
Can you help this unlucky girl?
