German Shepherd Dog
Chinook, Mix

An adotable dog in Ashland, VA

  • Young
  • Medium
  • Female

Trixie is a 3 year old female German Shepherd mixed with likely some Chinook. She weighs 53 pounds. She was recently rescued from a local animal shelter. She had recently had puppies and weaned them before coming to BARK. She is very playful, affectionate, eager to please, likes other dogs, chases toys, is potty trained, since she is possessive of treats and will react towards other dogs if she is not watched closely with treats that she doesn't eat quickly. She needs some more training on a leash and does well with a gentle leader. She learned how to "sit" in less than 20 minutes and would love to learn some new tricks. She takes snacks very gently, and she sleeps thru the night and will let you know if she needs to go out. She loves to chew on toys - if it has ears or a tail, she will eat them off first, so she needs some durable chew toys. She loves to run around outside and is happy on her own, but enjoys running around and playing tag with other dogs. She likes to chase after squirrels too. Since she is possessive of treats, and she gets nervous around children, she will not be adopted into a home with children. She was adopted briefly into a home with a cat and they did fine together. She will be a wonderful companion an an all adult home. Please ask to meet Trixie today, by submitting an adoption application online at www.barkva.org or call 804-449-BARK(2275) today.
