My name is Ebony, and I am a 7 year old GSP Mix. I have been at the rescue for a very long time, and I dream of the day when it will be my turn to go home. I am a black GSP Mix in the middle of a sea of liver and white spotted dogs, so I am often overlooked. I am not very social with other dogs, and prefer to be an only dog, but I am just as much fun as two dogs!
Here are a few things you should know about me…
I walk great on a leash and I know how to heel like a pro. I absolutely love to play fetch. I sit when you tell me to. I have been known to do “down” for some people, as long as I know they are serious, and there is a cookie in it for me afterwards!
I am great when training, I watch you for cues, and I learn very fast. I am crate trained. I love the water, so you could take me to the lake or beach! I am very attentive, and I know “watch me”, which makes me highly trainable. I have a beautiful, shiny coat when brushed, and it is not too long. I come when I am called, and I know my name “Ebony”! I love people and I am very affectionate.
I have a few challenges that I want my new family to know. I need to be an only dog in the home. I need a strong leader on a walk so I can’t get into trouble with another dog. I think with practice and patience, this will not be an issue after the daily walks, training, and attention I would get in a home. I don’t do well with children. I may be able to improve by leaps and bounds with someone who could give me positive associations with new situations. For example, walk me by a playground and give me treats as the kids made noise nearby. I should not be off-leash until I can be properly trained on recall.
I haven’t had much experience in a home for most of life, so I just need to get used to things. I want so badly to find a home and someone to call my own. I am the best of both worlds! A people pleasing playful Lab, and the “velcro” personality and energy of a GSP, (but without the stubborn streak) Shhhh… Don’t tell them I told you that!
I promise to give you an abundance amount of unconditional love and affection for a lifetime, and you will see that once you get to know me, it will be so worth it!
