Miss Josie is Yours to Take Home!

San Andreas, CA…May we introduce Miss Josie? She is a spayed female German Shepherd Dog mix, estimated to be about 16 months young and weighing 69 pounds. Josie is one of the most beautiful dogs to pass through our portals. You can see she won our photographer’s heart!

Josie has just completed 6 weeks of daily classes at Twin Cedars Canine with Margaret Blair, and we really see a difference. She is much calmer and now, will sit on command and walk on a loose leash.
Josie is also an affectionate girl. She likes all the dogs she has met at the shelter, and they bring out her joy. She enjoys her playdates. A meet ’n greet is required if you have another dog.

NOTE: It is mandatory for Josie to be well contained. She will scale an 8-foot fence if lonely. She is a high energy dog who will need lots of exercise and activity. She will juggle and chase the ball. She sits for treats.

Josie is an interesting mix. Her DNA test shows 82% GSD, 6 % Malinois, 3% White Swiss shepherd, 2 % Collie, 2% Australian shepherd, 3 % Chow & 2% Akita

Adoption fees include spay/neuter, a microchip and vaccines, including rabies.
