An intelligent and sensitive pup, Candy is a real gem. She is a beautiful 5-month-old German Shepherd who will instantly steal your heart. She is playful, gentle, affectionate, and somewhat mellow for a shepherd puppy. She is curious and friendly with other dogs and would likely make a very good family dog provided her home understands how to manage children and puppies safely. She is still learning the ropes in her home, and like all other puppies, she will require time, basic training, gentle patience, and an abundance of socialization for the next couple of years. Shepherds are intelligent and need mental stimulation to thrive (not just exercise), which makes them very fun to train!
Although she is not presenting with separation anxiety at this time, she will need a home where she is not left for extended periods of time during her puppyhood. Please be home every 2 hours during this important socialization and training period. Please know up front that she could easily grow to be 50+ pounds as an adult and is a shedding breed. (SkS)
