Description

Yuki's family loved her dearly; however, due to some unforeseen circumstances, they found themselves unable to provide her with the attention and care she deserves. As a result, Yuki's family made the difficult decision to surrender her to MAGSR. We have promised Yuki's family that we will find her a safe and loving household. 

Yuki is a lovely and energetic shepherd. As is common with most shepherds, Yuki thrives with structure and leadership. When these circumstances are not present, she can become nervous and anxious. Although Yuki has lived with other dogs, cats, and children, she does need time to warm up to new people and animals. When given this opportunity, Yuki meets with success. Yuki is looking for a forever family that will help her move forward. If she sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet Yuki today.  

Updates

Yuki has been with her foster for 2 weeks and is settling in well. She is starting to show her fun loving personality and can we just say: SQUEAKY BALL! She is in love with squeaky balls and would love to play fetch with her person for as long as possible. She absolutely loves getting her chest scratched and will pull your hand right to her chest with her paw. Need a reminder not to sit at the computer for long periods? No problem. She has a built in clock that says one hour at a time only please. Her itchiness is doing better and her coat is looking more glossy with regular groceries and fish oil. She is still nervous around other people and dogs and needs very gentle introductions. We are working on leash manners and she knows she is supposed to do something different, but is still very focused on watching out for trouble. After barking and letting workmen know that they were entering restricted territory and then getting introduced, she had no problem letting them come in and work on my house. Yuki has a possible diagnosis of EPI -- a pancreatic insufficiency common in GSDs, and may need lifelong enzyme additives in her food. It doesn't bother her but may be adding to her tendency to being underweight and itchy.

Yuki has had a very happy new year! For the first time, she had happy zoomies after a walk (for those of you who haven't seen those, that is when the dog is so full of fun that their brains turn off, ears go back, and the dog zooms around the available space with a wide smile and frequent play bows until the need for water slows them down). She didn't have any problems with the fireworks, which was a nice surprise. She also slept through the neighbor's loud music. It was nice to see her relaxed. She really is a sweetheart who just wants to be near her person in a generally quiet environment and get the ball thrown for her. She would rather play ball then go on a walk! She is housebroken and prefers to do her business in the backyard rather than on walks.

She is crate trained but we are seeing some separation anxiety behaviors.  She would benefit from some work with that. She is eager to please and be a part of your life. She is very ball motivated and that is fun to use during training. She knows (in a distraction free environment) sit, down, up, off, come, leave it, bring it, go potty, over, in the car, and where's the ball. She is getting better at stay, but still wants you to stay in sight in return.

Yuki has EPI which requires over-the-counter enzymes and regular, store bought food (high calorie, lower fat, and low fiber). The enzymes we have were around $77 for what is probably going to be a 20 day supply. So her "special" food need comes to about $100 per month and she gets Monthly B-12 shots.   Yuki is a special dog that needs a special home that will love her and keep up her special diet and shots.  Could you be that person that gives her the care and love she so deserves?
