Xena has been adopted!

Hi, I’m Xena! I’m a sweet girl who loves to play! I’m an approximately 1 year old German Shepherd puppy and am ready to be your loyal companion. I’m learning a lot at my foster home and am picking up on new things quickly!

Playing with other dogs is really fun, but my excitement overtakes me and so I’m still learning how to play. I’m very loyal and tend to be glued to my foster mom’s side, we love to sit on the couch together. I’m a good cuddle buddy! I’m an eager learner and my foster mom thinks I’m super smart! When a treat is involved I will sit pretty and wait, although I have a hard time when another dog is getting rewarded too.

Before coming to New York I lived in Texas, my owner didn’t pay too much attention to me. I was always outside. This is all so new to me! I think I understand the concept of where to go to the bathroom but there have been a couple times where I may have forgotten. I am getting the hang of walking on a leash, but this too is new and takes practice! Due to my new surroundings we feel a fenced in yard will be most beneficial for me and my learning. I have not met any kids yet so we aren’t too sure how I will do. I am trying hard to figure out my foster dog sister too. Sometimes I want all the attention and don’t know how to handle her getting attention as well. We are improving every day though!

Please consider adopting me! I have so much love to give!
