Mary is the sweetest 6-8 -year-old petite Shepherd-mix, and she weighs 50 pounds. She had a really bad ear condition when she was rescued from a shelter, but she received ear canal surgery recently, and is getting better.
She is generally a medium-energy, calm dog, that loves going for walks and does great running with her foster mom. This sweet girl is absolutely adorable and has a wonderful, cute personality that will put a smile on your face. She has great house-manners, is housebroken and not destructive. She loves playing with toys - she flips them over and catches them, which makes her very happy. Mary also loves running in the yard and chasing squirrels, and is not an escape artist - she never tries to jump the fence and doesn't dig. She knows “Sit” and “Down” and, in keeping with her ladylike personality, takes treats very gently.
Mary is good with other dogs but doesn’t really play with them - she really prefers to be with people rather than dogs, but has no problem being around other dogs. She walks well on leash but does react when seeing other dogs during her outings, so she will benefit from a bit of leash training with her future owner. She does wonderfully with home visitors and is generally quiet, only barking when a warning is necessary.
Mary has lived in a foster home with a cat and, with a slow introduction, she did well.
Overall, Mary is a great dog - an easygoing, happy girl - and someone will be fortunate to have her in their life.
