This week we’d like to feature Lina. Lina - Oregon Humane Society Lina is a 2-year-old, 63 pound Shepard mix, who’s very sweet and snuggly with people, but is not a fan of other dogs. Because of her dislike of other dogs, she’ll need to be the only dog in the home.
She came to us from Klamath Falls where she was found as a stray. And pregnant. She went into foster while she finished her pregnancy, had her puppies, and then weened her babies at about 8 weeks old. She’s gotten her girlish figure back and is now ready to find her people.
Here’s what her foster parent had to say about her:
“Lina is a sweetheart who will warm up with a little time. She prefers females but likes men who are gentle with soft voices. She is scared of loud noises but gets better when she’s used to a new environment. Once she feels safe, she’s a complete puppy at heart. She loves playing. She loves cuddles and hugs and is very loyal. She does bark some, mostly from someone knocking at the door or from new people she’s scared of. She hasn’t shown any guarding tendencies with humans, but she is guards her food around other dogs. It’s probably best that she goes to a home without other dogs or if she does go with other dogs, that they meet first and are fed separately. She is such a good girl, but after being stray she just doesn’t understand yet that she’ll be fed regularly now. She does enjoy digging holes in the yard but she’s a quick learner and does listen when told to stop. She knows how to sit and learned paw as well. She is learning potty training very quickly. She’s very smart. She will make a great pet to someone who will be patient with her and smother her in love.”
Does this beautiful Shepard sound like the girl for you? If so, please submit the questionnaire at the bottom of her profile and Oregon Humane Society can set up a time for you to come in and meet her.
