This is Sugar, an adult German shepherd who is just learning her way around the world.  Raised alone in a backyard, she hasn’t seen much outside so her new family should be willing to work with her.  She will require a confident and experienced owner.  Sugar can be fearful and unfortunately doesn’t warn with a growl – she snaps.  You gotta watch this so no kids – at least not yet.  With some love and training, you can help her develop more confidence and teach her better coping skills for when she feels threatened.  She is not aggressive, she’s just scared.  If you can work with this, you’re gonna get a great dog.

She seems to be a homebody dog and will benefit from a routine.  She loves going for walks and sniffing around the yard.  She is not the kind of dog who would like going on big adventures.  Not now anyway, maybe later with more confidence.

Around the home you will find Sugar a gentle, loving dog.  She wants to be with you and will follow you from room to room often carrying her favorite toy.  She loves her toys and won’t destroy them.  She is gentle enough that even our puppy can take the toys away.  She mostly ignores other dogs but does play well with our puppy.  They like to wrestle and to play tug.
