Nevaeh is a lovely, petite red and black female with a plush coat who weighs about 55 lbs. We have estimated her age at around 3 years old, but her goofy energy makes her seem almost puppy-like at times. Her name is Heaven spelled backwards, but her past seems anything but heavenly. She came to the shelter as a stray, so we know nothing of her background. The shelter recognized her extremely sweet nature and tried to prepare her for a forever home, but the shelter environment was much too stressful for her. Now comfortably settled into a foster home, she is being weaned off of her anti-anxiety medication and is learning that the world isn't such a scary place. While she still exhibits cautious and submissive behavior sometimes, she is no longer anxious or afraid.
Nevaeh trusted her human immediately, but she took a bit longer to extend her trust to the other dogs in the foster home. Appropriate introductions were made slowly and she is now great pals with the three other German Shepherds in her foster home and she is also respectful of the indoor cats. She loves to play rough with the other dogs and also shows exuberance playing with her human. As with many German Shepherds, she uses her mouth to play and is still learning appropriate methods to engage, so she would likely do best with older children. She loves playing chase and is starting to show an interest in stuffed toys.
Nevaeh was quick to claim a crate as one of her favorite quiet spots. She will sleep quietly in her crate, but she can also be trusted to sleep on a dog bed in her foster mom's room and she is now choosing the various dog beds over the crate when she naps. Her right eye appears to be under-developed and while it is likely that she is blind in that eye, it also does not appear to cause her any discomfort. Neveah loves being with her people and would love a home that will continue her socialization and training.
This is a Level 2 Dog.
