This beauty goes by the name of Shady. Shady is a 4-year-old black German shepherd mix who is ready to meet her perfect human companion! This gal is always on the move and ready for any adventure. This smart cookie catches on quickly and needs an owner who will work with her on training. Shady can be shy around new people at first so she is searching for someone who will slowly introduce her to new environments. When she feels comfortable and confident you’ll see her radiating energy as she asks you to join her and play! Her high energy is great for those who love spending their days outdoors or for those who enjoy going on daily runs and hikes. If this lovely girl sparks your adventurous side please call Dog Adoption & Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at to learn more on how you can give Shady the home she deserves!
