In shelter Dog

Louisville, KY, 40243
Pet name:
German Shepherd Dog
Clara is a beautiful female Shepherd estimated around 4 - 5 years of age. Clara was in survival mode when she first arrived and has done a great job overcoming that and learning to trust people. We do not know her history prior to arriving at that shelter.

Clara is a volunteer favorite for her big lap dog personality and sweet demeanor. Clara is occasionally still timid with new people if she is overwhelmed but is a generally friendly, social girl. She does not like being rushed and those tend to be the situations we shys away from. She has done a great job meeting new people while out and is also very well mannered for vet visits. She is quickly won over with some treats and is pretty sure the vet techs are just there to spoil her with treats. Clara loves being near her people and although she doesnt demand attention she is never far away. Clara is a generally well mannered girl who rides well in the care and is great for grooming. Clara has warmed up to and done well with children 7 years and up but has not been around younger children. We think Clara would do well with older children who are dog savvy but we would not recommend her for a home with younger children or children who dont understand dog boundaries.

Clara does wonderful with the other large dogs in her foster home and she navigates play groups well. She meets other dogs well on leash and is generally well behaved around other medium and large dogs. Clara does have a high prey and level of fixation therefore she is NOT suitable for a home with cats or small dogs. Clara does well supervised in the house and is crated when unsupervised. Clara can be barrier reactive when she is in a new place and will bark along fence lines or in the crate when she sees new people or animals. This behavior is easily redirected and this behavior subsides once she settles into a routine. It is not a behavior regularly seen in her foster home anymore but is one we are mindful of possibly returning when she transitions into a new home.

Clara is a sweet girl who simply hasnt been given the chance to thrive in her a home of her own. She is looking for a home with the love, patience, and guidance every Shepherd needs to flourish. If you have a place in your heart and home for Clara please request an adoption application at
