German Shepard (Small Breed)

2 years old

Beige & Sable




Hi, my name is Princess. I was rescued from northern Saskatchewan in October. They found me homeless, pregnant and trying to fend for myself.

I was in foster care, and had my babies, but now my babies are all ready to go to their forever homes, and I am really (really!) ready to find my own forever home. I bond quickly with people, and do not like being confined to a kennel or crate as I get very anxious. I prefer to stay by the side of my person, so if I could find a home where someone would be home with me most of the time, I would be so happy! Or maybe there is another dog for me to have as a playmate...that would be a dream come true! I've always wanted a "dog friend". 💖

I am a smaller breed mix, and only about 45lbs. I am gentle and relatively quiet, I love to go on walks, and my most recent favorite thing is to roll in the new snow! I adore belly rubs, and will lay with you for a long time just to convince you to give me one. I enjoy a game of tuggy, but I really am still trying to understand the concept of what a "toy" is. I do enjoy running and playing tag with other dogs, but I also have a prey drive - so I will chase after rabbits or squirrels just for fun! This is why it might be best if I didn't have a cat in my new home - I might find it hard to relax knowing there is a rabbit-like creature (they sort of look the same to me) around the house for me to track!

I am great with children, and love the attention and belly rubs. I have not been around really small children, but I would love a family with children about 10 years old who would not pull on my tail or chase me around the house. 😄

If you think you might like to meet me, please fill in an application to adopt at www.almosthomeyyc.com, and if you are a good match, someone from the adoption team at the rescue will contact you directly to set up a meet and greet. I would love to go for a walk with you, and get to settle into my new home over the holidays!

Paws & Kisses, Princess🐾
