She aims to please!

Nice to meet you!  My name is I’m Osa, and I’m a 5-year-old, 52-pound, spayed Shepherd mix female.

I am fully house-trained, and I walk perfectly on a leash with almost no pulling.  I’m easily trainable (I’ve almost fully mastered “sit” and “wait”), too, and I respond well to verbal corrections.   As far as my health goes, I am a proud TVT survivor and had surgery to repair my prolapsed vagina.  I am all cleared by the vet now!  

A little bit about me, you ask? Well, I am just the sweetest girl you’ll ever meet, and I will do anything I can to please my humans.  I’m attention-motivated, and I will happily cuddle on the couch all day long and demand endless pets and love from you.  But despite being incredibly loving, I also have an energetic spunky side!  I love taking walks and am at my best when I’m getting about 2-4 miles of walking per day.  I make a fantastic running buddy, too, and will run by your side while on a leash.  When I’m not outside, I’ve been known to wrestle, as well as toss/chase my Kong around the house.  I also tend to get the zoomies pretty often, especially after a nice, long walk. I used to be wary of men, but I have learnt to trust, and even snuggle! 

Something that I also wanted to add is that I can take a little while to warm up to new people and new surroundings.  Therefore, I prefer slow introductions in order to feel comfortable.  I can feel nervous and tense around males on occassion.  Currently, I’d rather they not engage with me and just allow me to sniff them once ready. I am also muzzle trained and 

My ideal home would be with an active family who can provide me with sufficient exercise every day.  I also require lots of love and cuddles, and I’m happy to report that I don’t have any separation anxiety and can be left alone for several hours with no issues.  I am  kitty- and dog-friendly, and I think I would do okay around little humans. 

Do we sound like a match?  If so, my adoption fee is $250 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.  If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/.
