About Sunny

We are pleased to announce that Sunny was adopted on Jan. 22, 2023
Hey, my name is Sunny! It is the perfect name for me because I am full of sunshine, happiness, and a zest for life! I am a very sweet and loving girl, who will make an amazing addition to a forever family that is active and ready to put in the work to harness my drive and energy! I hear there are lots of people like that around here, so I will fit right in. I am a real diamond in the rough, and even though I was found abandoned, I know lots of commands and am a very eager learner. I also have fantastic recall and will be an awesome trail dog, and there is nothing I love more than racing through the woods. Except maybe ear scratches and belly rubs! I have so much exuberance that sometimes it can't be contained, and I can become overstimulated on walks and vocal towards things that excite me or make me nervous. I've heard the humans call it leash reactivity. I am working on finding my chill in stimulating environments, and this is sure to improve once I gain some confidence, and find an appropriate outlet for my energy. I become frustrated meeting new people on leash, and can be nervous of new people - especially men - so my new owners should be prepared to help me learn how to feel safe greeting new people. I also get a bit too excited in the car, but lucky for you I am already crate trained and actually love hanging out and snoozing in my crate! It would be great if my new humans are familiar with health issues that are common with my breed, and the behavioral and training needs of German Shepherds. I have an eye condition called Pannus which requires daily eye drops for the rest of my life. I could play fetch ALL. DAY. LONG. and I'm very toy motivated! Bringing my favourite ball out on walks has proven to be a great way to get my attention when I am becoming reactive on leash, because I'll do anything to have you toss it for me! I will need to meet any dog playmates before heading home to make sure we are a good match. You will have a tough time not falling in love with my sweet and playful demeanour, and my super affectionate side. If you need a little sunshine in your life, get in touch to meet me!
