Hello world! My name is Luka, and I am a recent addition to the GSRA family. I am a two year old petite German Shepherd. I weigh about 52 lbs and am actively looking for a new family to love me.
Not much is known about my past. I was surrendered to a small rural shelter when my original owner decided to move and for some reason I was not invited to the relocation.
I was very frightened when I first got to the shelter. The wonderful folks at the shelter worked with me to build my confidence and to improve my interaction with people. I have gotten so much better since I’ve gotten into rescue. I am not a social butterfly, but I bond very quickly with my people, and will be very devoted to you. I am a little nervous in new settings, so you have to help me understand that there is no threat with new experiences.
I am a really good girl in the house! I am house trained and crate trained. I like to follow my foster mom around, and if she watches TV I’m happy to go and lay nearby and just chill out. I have not exhibited any destructive tendencies.
I am very eager for attention and very food motivated. I do know how to sit. I am a master at sit! If you hold up a treat, I will pop my butt down! This is about the only command I know aside from recall. Once I accept you as my person, if you call me over, I come running right to you. I will sell my soul for a treat, so I’m sure that if you have some high value items such as Bojangles or hotdogs, I will probably be willing to learn many more tricks and commands!
My foster mom thinks that I must’ve been an outside dog. While I like attention, I am very fidgety, and I’m not quite sure what to do with myself when you try to pet me. I try to jump and squiggle around. But I do like the attention. I am a diamond in the rough.
I ride very well in the car, and I am a fairly quiet dog in the house!
Per the shelter, I previously lived with another male German Shepherd. My foster mom says that I’m a little dog selective. Maybe I’m just not sure of how to interpret new dogs, but I can be an only dog or, if there’s another dog in the household, we will have to do a few meets to see if I will accept you as part of my pack. With that being said, I am perfectly fine on a leash around other dogs. I do not exhibit any snarky behaviors.
I do have a fairly high prey drive, so my forever home cannot have any kitty cats or small dogs. I am a little jumpy when I get startled so I think a home with children over 10 would be best.
I am a really nice girl, and I’m hoping that if you meet me and spend a little time with me you will see all the potential I have. Foster mom says I’m wonderful and that the rescue will find me the perfect home. A fenced yard is really preferred because I’m a little scared of new things!
Thank you for reading my story and I hope to meet you soon! Maybe you can be my forever family.
