Dory von Dortmund is a wonderful 8 month old German Shepherd. Per her foster mom: Dory is a really sweet girl. Loves her foster sisters. She loves to play with them and actually gets Anastasia acting like a puppy again, its so cute. Dory is very loving and loves to run around, go for walks where we introduce her to the neighbor's dogs. She loves to be with her human as well as the furry ones. She knows how to sit, give me her paw, touch, wait, come and sit pretty aka beg position. She is very smart and will be a great family addition. She would be great in a family especially if they have another dog that is socialized and will accept an addition. Older children would be fine, 9 up but until she learns not to play with her mouth I wouldn't suggest younger kids. Of course, she is getting better but when she gets excited she loves to grab so we are working on that. She is potty trained and crate trained. Car rides are a little scary, but with patience and time she will be fine. If you are interested in adopting Dory please visit: http://www.sheprescue.org/ and fill out an adoption application!
