    Story

    Hi everyone, meet Shasta!

    Shasta is a sweet and affectionate girl, who loves her people more than anything. She is about 2 years old. She has come a long way from being a shy girl and now loves to be cuddled and rubbed. She has been in a crate, and will no doubt need a bit of a refresher. We leave her out with our other 2 dogs and she has been fine. She loves and gets along with her foster brother and sister. Cuddling with her pack is her all time favorite activity. This lovely girl is house broken and has been quick to learn basic commands. Her sit and recall are coming along great, and she aims to please. She pulls a bit on the leash but is learning how to walk properly.

    Shasta is a medium energy dog, but very strong. She really enjoys going for walks, playing with our resident dogs, and is starting to understand what playing fetch is all about. She might benefit with having another dog in the house if they are properly introduced. It is so exciting watching her come out of her shell. She is fine when we come across other dogs, she gives them a sniff, and continues on her way. She just needs proper introductions. She is interested in learning new activities and she has a very good nose and might benefit from nose work for a fun activity. She loves to be outside exploring with my other dogs, so a fenced yard would be perfect for her. She just wants to be loved.

    Shasta would do best with an experienced handler, and there cannot be any cats in the home . An active home would be nice, but more importantly this girl craves affection and cuddles above all else. She did her first zoomie today and it was very exciting. She is starting to learn how to be a happy, fulfilled dog. All she needs is her forever home.

    If you like cuddling and long walks, look no further! Shasta might just be the girl for you.

      Good with Kids?
      Not tested with kids, but should not be a problem if introduced properly.
    • AARCS_SpecialNeeds
      Does this Animal have Special Needs?
      Yes, Behavioral Needs

      We have been working through a training plan with Shasta to help curb the reactivity she exhibits towards other dogs when she sees them and when we are out for a walk. She is making progress, but will need some time and patience to curb this behaviour. Needs a fenced yard so she can feel safe.
