SAY HELLO TO
Wisdom is a sweet Shepherd mix, who likes everyone. She is doing well on housebreaking and does okay in a crate for a few hours at a time. She is working on learning commands and walking nicely on a leash. In her former home, she didn't get proper medical care and was worm-, flea- and tick infested which made her anemic. We are also treating her with antibiotics for a tick borne disease called Erlichia which caused her to have very low energy for a puppy.
A few weeks into her treatment, Wisdom is now getting more and more energetic at home and her true personality is coming out- acting like a normal dog her age, running, jumping and playing. At shows and in new situations, she acts very timid. She is way more confident when she is with a familiar dog (like her foster sister), so instead of making her an only dog, we are looking for an adoptive home with another dog that is well grounded and can act as a positive role model (and be a playmate). She is currently over 50 pounds and expected to grow for a few more months, averaging a weight gain of 3 pounds per week.
