Millie ~ 1 Year ~ German Shepherd Mix

Meet Millie! This beautiful soul came to us from way up in Northern Manitoba where she was rescued from life on the streets. Don't let her size fool you, this 73 lb girl is very gentle and immediately affectionate. She enjoys the company of other dogs, and we feel having another dog in her forever home will help her feel confident and secure.

Millie is doing exceptionally well acclimating to life indoors. She is housetrained, and in spite of her age, her energy is well managed with 2-3 walks a day...and the rest of the time, she is lower energy and happily snuggles in for couch cuddles and snoozes. She shows no sign of resource guarding behaviour, and will settle into her crate overnight.

Millie's leash skills are a work in progress. She is getting better every day, but as a bigger girl, she does need a strong adult who will continue to help her master this. She will occasionally bark if she sees people or other dogs but can easily be redirected with treats. Millie does have a prey drive for chipmunks and tiny critters, so we feel it may be safest to place her in a cat-free home as she would likely feel inclined to chase the kitties.

Millie would be a great fit for a moderately active family. She does have some mild separation anxiety so a home where she would not be left alone for extended periods of time would also be ideal, however, having another dog in the home may help her feel safe and adjust to being on her own. A fenced yard is ideal for Millie as she does enjoy lounging outdoors in the sunshine.

Millie is incredibly intelligent and would make a wonderful candidate for puppy classes to help her build her confidence and strengthen the bond with her humans. She loves people and often receives compliments on her sweet and gentle demeanor. With all this potential plus some consistency and guidance, Millie is going to be an amazing lifelong friend and companion!
