About Gianna:

Gender: Female

Age: 10 months

Weight: 41 lbs

Breed: Husky/German Shepherd (GSD)

Spayed: Yes

Vaccinated: Yes

Microchipped: Yes

Adoption Fee: $250.00 (plus tax)

Dogs: Gianna loves to play with other dogs and would do best in a home with at least one other dog. She does require slow introductions but acclimates well. She has been around dogs her size and larger but has never been around significantly smaller dogs.

Cats: Gianna does not do well with cats. She likes to chase them and pounce on them. For safety reasons, Gianna should not be in a home with cats.

Kids: Gianna is a typical puppy - excitable and prone to jumping and nipping. She has done great with older children (11+) capable of handling her excitement. She should not be in a home with unattended smaller children.

Crate Trained: Yes, she sleeps quietly in her crate at night and stays there during the working hours with a small break halfway during the workday.

Housebroken: Yes, and she will go to the door to let you know she would like to go out.

Leash Manners: Gianna is learning leash manners but will still occasionally lunge at birds or squirrels. She is trained to walk on a prong collar and does best with this tool to help her learn how to walk safely.

Training: Gianna knows sit, down, come and crate reliably. However she tends to get distracted easily and needs more work obeying commands around distractions. She is very responsive to treats or food as rewards and catches onto everything very quickly. She has recently begun learning to run on the treadmill and loves the extra cardio!

Home Recommendation: Gianna would do best in an active home that can give her mental and physical stimulation, and that can continue working with her as far as training and socialization. Gianna was not well socialized for the first part of her life and while she has made amazing progress, she still has anxiety around new people and places. At home however she is sweet, spunky and full of energy. She would love to find a family willing to adopt both her and her mother, Alaska, but the two can also be adopted seperately. Gianna does, however, benefit greatly from having Alaska around to show her that the things she is anxious about are safe.

Being part husky and part GSD, Gianna has traits from both breeds.

She is a typical husky in that she is just LOUD. She whines, barks, howls, talks, if a sound can be made she makes it. If you are looking for a quiet dog, Gianna is not the one. She is also an amazing jumper and will require a high fence to keep her contained.

Gianna has the GSD mentality of my people. She will be very attached to her new family and her adopters will need to make sure she is properly socialized.

Her listing will be removed as soon as he has an approved application

Most importantly, please be honest! We have many people tell us what they think we want to read, not whats truthful. If there are discrepancies, your application will be denied. Its important for us to place dogs in a home thats suitable. You may be a stellar owner but possibly not a good fit for the dog you were first interested in adopting. Were not trying to offend anyone, were trying to set everyone up for success. Were a best fit rescue and will verify your vet and personal references.
