This stunning girl is Mia, was called Shadow, who is nearly 3 years old and needs a new home as the home we recently rehomed her to, feel they cannot give her the life she needs.

Mia is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.
Not known how she is with cats.
She is ok with older children.
Mia was rescued from an awful place where she spent most of her life crated, she saw very little of the outside world & needed out of there asap. Consequently everything is new to her.
Mia is great with people, lovely friendly girl.
She could be around other dogs with calm, controlled introductions. Again, this is all new to her, so she has no idea how she is supposed to behave or what the other dog is going to do. Lots of positive training and interactions with steady dogs will help with this.
She is housetrained & travels well in the car.

This is what our assessor had to say about Mia;-

Typical GSD bark when I rang the doorbell, greeted by a bouncy GSD who did jump up but very friendly, more like greeting an old friend. Was happy taking treats and was very gentle too. The couple explained how she had come from a pretty grim situation where she had been crated most of her early life, there were brief moments of spinning but she was easily distracted out of this, apparently early on she would do this quite a bit, but it’s becoming less and less. There was brief moments of skittishness if I did any sudden movements, but again was easy to manage with yummy treats, she was quick to want me to play ball with her and let me take it no problem. She is a very active girl, almost like Pandora’s box, she’s now enjoying life at 100 mph.. I think she would benefit from an active home, possibly some sort of dog sports where she is mentally stimulated.
The walk.
Walked either on flat collar or choke chain currently and she is pretty strong, you can see the basics are there but it’s not fluid yet and therefore she does need work on this but one short session with tasty treats, she was staying fairly close for parts of the walk. Waits at curb, and if pulling and you stop she will return to your side. It was fairly dark on our walk and she was definitely on alert, we saw one dog, small fluffy and we were far enough away that she calmly but alert watched it from the other side of the road, quick to realize that disengaging her staring got her a reward. 2nd dog, was a very large husky with 4 people this time on the same side of the road, we moved out of the way but she did have a bit of a growl and lunge but was quick to calm once it had passed. Passing cars and bikes didn’t have any affect although showed a little interested in a passing jogger.
What can I say about this girl? Utterly fabulous ok, a little rough around the edges but the current owners have done amazing work, if you read the bark busters report from her initial assessment. She is stunning, and if the timing had been right I think I would have been bringing her home as my new scentwork dog as I think she’d be awesome. This girl is strong on the lead, needs work around some dogs, careful intros but wow. She’s my kind of girl. Picks up training really quick and is food and toy motivated. She is not a couch potato and needs stimulation.

Mia is currently in Ware, Hertfordshire.
