UPDATE 3/18: Tess has gone into foster care to work with professional Schuzhund trainers for basic obedience and training. She will be learning several commands including: sit, down, heal, release, wait, as well as tracking training. We will update as she learns knew skills.
Tess is a beautiful pure bred 1-2 year old 60lb German Shepherd girl who was rescued from a kill shelter in Bakersfield. She is VERY smart and playful. She is dominant with other dogs, so a family with no other dogs would be best for her. She is super sweet and would be a wonderful dog for someone that is looking for the ultimate companion. She has a good strong drive, so something like flyball or anything challenging (maybe even search and rescue) would be a good thing for this girl! We are currently working on her leash walking and basic commands. Tess is up to date on shots, spayed, micro-chipped and comes with a free month of pet insurance. Adoption fee $275.
