SaharaSahara Head

Sahara is a 4 year old petite sable female. She was adopted out from us a couple years ago, and returned when the owner took a new job and did not have any time for her. When first adopted Sahara was taken through a training program, and is a very well trained dog. The previous owner admitted to not working with her much after that, so a brush up is needed on her skills.

Sahara is a high energy extremely intelligent girl. She is very busy, and if it was up to her, she would never stop moving. When you get home, she gets so excited she can hardly contain herself; she jumps, spins, and runs in circles. Sahara needs an owner that will exhibit leadership skills and enforce the rules, otherwise she will take over the house. She needs to be exercised properly, and would like a job of some sort. This girl also has some nice ball drive, and is good at bringing the ball back to you.

Sahara took right to treadmill training in her foster home. After just a few minutes, she was pretty much running on her own. Sahara also makes a great running partner, as she will stay at your side the entire time. When out on walks, Sahara will stay on a heel, and doesn't seem to have much interest in the wildlife or livestock around her.

Sahara currently lives with four other shepherds. She bonds very quickly to her people, so would be fine as an only dog, or living with a large male, that likes very rough play. She pokes at, and runs and jumps on foster brothers twice her size without hesitation. They are not quite sure what to make of her. In the evenings, Sahara is learning to stay on her bed with out jumping up every five seconds. At night she is learning to sleep quietly in her crate. Sahara will gladly ride free in the car, or in a crate.

Sahara requires a home with structure and leadership, and one that will brush up on her training and provide her the mental and physical exercise she needs. This girl has a lot love and dedication to give the right home.

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