Help a furkid in need

Hello, my name is Joela!


More about me

Female (Large). German shepherd. Young-adult - DOB: 2015.
I am good with:
Dogs, Children, Domestics

Shelter: (Gauteng)
Tel: 063 040 6071

She is a very affectionate creature and true to her breed she always has a small rock in her vicinity – the rock will be stealthily planted somewhere on your relaxing person and she will wait patiently on the odd chance of a “fetch” throw coming her way. She tends to be barky when she has a view of the street and passersby. She has lived in harmony with our 13 year old Shar-Pei and my parent’s miniature Toy Pom lap dog. Joela is extremely intelligent and will react even to a nuance in your voice – she is a sensitive girl whose feelings are easily hurt. She is an inside dog (sleeps in my room at night and lies around inside when it’s very hot or cold outside). She spends some time outside to go potty and to play. She has never been exposed to cats and I am unaware whether she may have spotted one outside, but she is not aggressive in nature at all. The only times I have seen her bark aggressively with raised back fur was when the gardener ventured too close to me or our housekeeper. As long as the gardener stays a fair distance away from the ladies of the house, she’s not bothered with him.

Joela will be spayed before homing.  She is vaccinated & dewormed.  She is fearful of storms so needs to be part of a family who can help her feel safe during storms & fireworks. She is housetrained.

She is being homed due to downsizing.
