Four year-old German Shepherd mix Eclipse is the sweetest, most loving dog. She adores everyone she meets and does great with kids as well. Eclipse loves to cuddle with her people or just nap on the floor next to you while you work. She also loves her soft squeaky toys as well as chew toys.
She’s the perfect medium-energy dog who enjoys long walks and hikes, but also enjoys chilling out at home. Eclipse walks very well on leash. She does not pull at all and it appears her previous owner trained her to always walk on the right side of her person. She’s also a very smart girl who knows basic commands, is house-trained, and learns new things extremely quickly. In the home, Eclipse is super well-mannered and rarely barks.
Eclipse came to Rocket Dog from an overcrowded shelter where they were forced to keep three dogs per kennel. Unfortunately, Eclipse was attacked by her kennel mate. While her injuries were fairly minor, she can be defensive at first with new dogs. She’s not the type of dog who gets overly reactive or barks at other dogs on walks- she just doesn’t want new dogs rushing up to her. She is improving very quickly but at this point we think she might be a better fit for a home without another dog or possibly a submissive male around her size.
If you are looking for the most loving, devoted dog to be your best friend, Eclipse is your girl! (LH)
