She’s your ride or die gal!
Hi there! My name is Chevy. I’m a loving, affectionate girl who is working on building my confidence on the open road. I’m a 1.5 year-old, 35-pound, German Shepherd sweetheart. Even though I’m still a pup, I had FHO surgery for hip dysplasia. It doesn’t slow me down one bit, but I’m not the biggest fan of stairs. Speaking of surgeries… I’m already spayed too!
My rescue story has quite a few pit stops. I was first found in a cardboard box at just 5-weeks-old at a gas station in North Park. I was put up for adoption and rescued by a kind family, but all the kids gave me a lot of stress. Growing up during the pandemic didn’t help with my socialization, so my family thought it would be best for me to be in a more mellow home with adults. I’ve started to take Prozac to calm my nerves, which I’ll gladly take each morning (with a little scoop of hooman food, of course!). I’m hoping that this next road trip will lead me right into the garage… ahem, I mean home of my furever family!
I’m still building my social skills with new people, I absolutely love other pups! I’m the annoying younger sister, always pestering my furry foster brother to play with me. I haven’t met any cats yet, so I’m not sure what I think about them. When I’m not playing with other pooches, I enjoy chasing bees in the yard or chewing on a bone. I also adore walks and do well on the leash. Even though I enjoy some moderate activity, I’ll gladly sleep at my hoomans feet while they work or cuddle up on the couch for some snuggles. I’m a big love bug!
I’m a totally trained girl who never has accidents in the house. I’m very smart and already know, “sit, down, touch, wait, and kennel.” Clearly, I’m also crate trained! The thing I need to work on most is building my confidence. New people make me nervous and I don’t like feeling cornered. I will growl or even bite if I feel threatened. I will absolutely shower my hoomans with love and kisses, but I just need time to build that trust. I’ve been getting better by meeting guests out on a walk and then having them over to the house. With baby steps and consistent training, I will keep learning that the world isn’t such a scary place.
My ideal furever family is one without kids or lots of commotion. I would love a furry brother or sister to keep me company and help show me the ropes. A yard would be amazing, but as long as I get out for plenty of walks and trips to the park, I’ll be a happy hound! I need to continue working on my socialization and training, but I pawmise to make it worth your while. If I sound like the lovable, loyal companion for you, PICK-UP Chevy today! My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
