German Shepherd Dog
Terrier, Mix

An adotable dog in Philadelphia, PA

  • Adult
  • Medium
  • Female

Beautiful Senior Alert!! Introducing Heart, the timid and gentle shepherd mix who was found as a stray and brought to ACCT by a kind stranger. The shelter is no place for this sweetheart...she deserves to be resting on someone's sofa, in an air-conditioned house. She's understandably nervous in the shelter - she's just a little girl at only 35lbs. Which also means she would be the perfect apartment sized dog! She's low energy so she would also make a good companion for someone just looking for a dog to cuddle with. Being in her kennel can be overwhelming for her but she opens up once you get her outside and likes to prance around. She also seems to loosen up a little around other dogs. And the icing on the cake - she already knows the command "sit" and she walks like a perfect lady on the leash. Please consider opening your home (and heart) to Heart [email protected]
