German Shepherd / Black Lab Mix
Age: approx. 3 years
Adoption Fee: $125 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)
Sylvie was picked up by Oakland Animal Control after someone was able to corral her in their backyard. As most GSDs in a shelter environment, she struggled and eventually just shut down in her kennel. Since GSD rescue groups are overwhelmed these days, Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs pulled her.
After moving her around to different locations looking for a foster home, Sylvie finally settled in with a family and proved herself to be an excellent dog: great on a leash, calm, confident, smart. She loves to catch treats in midair and might just be one of those dogs that plays Frisbee. She gets along well with other friendly, smaller dogs (no cats - big dogs with cats are just too risky a situation).
We have observed that Sylvie is very good at figuring out how to get out of secured areas so that she can hang with her humans. She can open doors (including car doors), gates, etc. with the sole purpose of wanting to be with you.
She needs a home with big yard and a high fence (secured gates), where she can get lots of attention and exercise. She is very well-behaved in public settings.
