About Speck

Speck is a very loving, energetic, and intelligent pup. She loves to play, go for walks/runs, play at the dog park, swim, or play fetch. She knows basic commands (sit, lay, drop, shake, stay, go lay down, etc.) and behaves well on and off leash (I would like her to be on leash if not in a fenced area though). She gets along well with most dogs although on leash she can get more vocal than off leash. I just make her sit and redirect her focus on me if this happens. Speck is not crate trained but is not destructive (that being said she is a dog and things to happen unexpectedly). She loves bones, Kong's, and loves to play tug while relaxing at home. She has no known allergies. She's obsessed with squirrels and will try to chase them while on leash but will stop when leash is taunt. Her "leave it" command needs to be reinforced daily with squirrels/rabbits/dogs.

  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 4 years, 7 mo. old
  • Weight: 55 lbs
  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Tracking Chip: No
  • Spayed: Yes
  • House Trained: Yes
    All trash cans must be covered or hidden.
  • Gets along with children: Yes
    I have a three year old nephew and roommate and she absolutely adores them! She can get a bit excited around kids so if they're younger she may accidently knock them over. But she has never been aggressive towards kids.
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    Speck is a little bit more protective of the home. We work daily to improve Speck reactions to other dogs inside the home and out. She does great with most dogs but like all animals they all have their days. Speck is an avoider when she wants out of a situation so as long as other dogs pick up on those cues she'll do great!
  • Gets along with cats: Yes
    She grew up with two cats in home. We don't have any cats now though. She thinks they are there to play with her. Usually she'll leave them be give them space after she figures out what they are.

Special Requirements

She is very active so play time, run, walk, or dog park is a daily (if not multiple times) requirement. She had mellowed out dramatically over the last year so a 30 minute walk or play session will be great!
