Silke (pronounced 'Zilka') is a purebred German shepherd dog, and is around 2-3 years old and about 70-75 pounds. She is the absolute sweetest dog ever. She's crate trained and knows a few basic commands, but could benefit from a 'refresher course.' She responds best to positive, motivational training methods.
She is an excellent watchdog from inside the yard or house, but is not at all aggressive towards people. She absolutely LOVES to be petted and loved on, and when she goes out in public, she knows no stranger.
Silke is extremely vocal. She likes to 'talk', and squeals and barks with joy when we arrive home from work in the evenings and let her out of the kennel she stays in during the day. She loves being with her people!
She is a little bit dominant with other dogs, so would be better off as an only pet or with a submissive male dog. We are not comfortable placing her into a home with another female dog.
She is not at all aggressive, but we feel that she would be best suited for a home without very small children, because of her size and energy level. She could easily knock them over by accident. She has been around kids of 7 or 8 years and up.
We are not sure if she would be okay in a home with cats. She has a lot of interest in them.
Silke is eligible for registration with the Continental Kennel Club.
This pet is eligible for 30-45 days of pre-paid pet health insurance and/or 30 days of pre-paid renter's insurance!
This pet is microchipped with a 24PetWatch microchip, which includes free registration into the 24PetWatch pet recovery service.
