LupeLupe Head

Lupe is a 2 year old, 75 lb., sable female with a definite mask on her face. She was a stray from a Sacramento shelter, so nothing is known of her background. She lives with three male German Shepherds easily in her foster home and is learning to not pester the cats. She was a wild child when she arrived, jumping up on people, mouthy, and leaping on furniture in the house. A quick learner, Lupe seems to understand when told to "settle" in the house, is learning "leave It," "crate," and "down." She rides nicely in the car and walks well on a leash. She also has decided she likes playing with one of the male dogs who also enjoys playing.

Lupe isn't given much freedom inside yet, but she seems to be housebroken. She is sleeping through the night in a crate with bones to entice her in and keep her occupied. She will tear out plants in the yard when she is wound up, but has not been destructive otherwise.

Lupe seems to crave attention, but is fairly quiet when left alone outside. She currently will shadow her person and doesn't understand what it means to "go lie down" but we're working on it.

Because of her high energy and mouthiness, a home without small children is recommended. Regular exercise is needed for this high energy girl. Continued training and socialization will also be a must for Lupe.

This is a Level 3 Dog. Please be sure you understand what a dog of this Level requires.
