Meet the one and only, Reyna; the most stunning shepherd (in her foster home)!
Reyna is 2 years old and came to us from a Northern Community where she lived on her own. Reyna is good with most dogs (she does not like headstrong females) and is great with people that she knows. Reyna has not met cats but does have a high prey drive so it is unlikely that she would do well in a home with small animals.
Reyna is working on her leash skills but so far she does very well on a transitional leash. She gets excited at first but then she settles in and enjoys the sights along the way. Reyna loves her people and has great potential to go on hikes and adventures on a long lead with proper training. Reyna is great in her crate but does react negatively to dogs when she is in there with food, understandably.
Reyna lives in a foster home with her foster mom and fur siblings and is doing really well. She warmed up to her foster mom right away but takes time to warm up to new people and does best when her foster mom advocates for her and doesn't allow people to force themselves upon her. Reyna does get stressed at the vet and is working on her muzzle training because of this. She is not an aggressive dog by any means, but she is a sensitive shepherd who needs to be shown the true life experience.
Here's what Reyna's foster mom thinks everyone should know:
Reyna is something special. She is perfect, lovable, funny, protective and if it hasn't been said already, she is perfect. When I say perfect, my definition is very different then most. She has her "issues" and her "quirks" but if you listen to her, if you respect her, you will be everything her world has ever needed within seconds.
She is an active yet quiet girl and absolutely loves to play fetch and go on walks with my family and I. If you have owned shepherds before and are considering adding another one to your home, I promise you will never regret bringing Reyna into your life. Once she gets home with you, it will be like she has always been there.
