Mamacita is a 6-7 month old, 35 pound German Shepherd mix. While it’s likely that she will be on the petite side, it is possible that she could grow to be 50+ pounds. This gentle and highly intelligent girl is so many things! She is intuitive, observant, sensitive, and a goofball.
Mamacita is a medium-energy dog who is playful but with a calm demeanor. She needs a backyard romp or two or a few walks a day, but she is happy to curl up at your feet otherwise. She loves to play with toys and is happy to throw them in the air and fetch them for herself! She is very responsive and well-behaved on the leash and loves to go on walks and adventures. She has made amazing progress in potty training and is almost able to potty on command.
Mamacita is cautious when meeting new people and dogs but playful and fun once she feels safe. Mamacita came to us with a broken heart and it has been a gift watching her regain trust and begin to show her goofy, belly-rub-loving side. While she is still shy with new people, she has met adults and older children and has allowed them to touch her without any reactivity. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. Bonus: She does well with dog-savvy cats.
Because Mamacita is still learning how to spend time alone, she needs someone who is home most of the day. She would do well with a sweet dog sibling and would do fine with older, calm, dog-savvy children that will give her the time and patience she needs to bond. With a little time, yummy treats, and a lot of gentleness she will grow into a world-class cuddle bug and the best dog ever. (SkS)
