Lana is a young pup, full of energy. She is a striking black and silver or almost a blue with dark eyes. She is learning good house manners and is in potty training 101. She is the youngest in her foster home, but has no problems keeping up with the others. Occassionally she is a little too rambunctious around the older dogs, but is corrected quickly just to come and play some more. She is learning to fetch the ball, sitting and waiting, taking treats nicely and learning not to jump up.
Lana will steal your heart. She is looking for a family that has raised a German Shepherd puppy before or has experience with Shepherds. She is going to need continued training through her first two years, this way she will bond really well with her humans. She does like to eat, she plays well with both big and small dogs and has met the resident cats, one of which she really is trying to play with. Because of her age she will not be ready for a few more weeks, so keep checking in on her and her progress.
Update from Lana's Foster Mom on May 1:
"Our Foster puppy Lana is growing into a beautiful German Shepherd, her coloring is different a black saddle silvery shaded legs with some tan markings, she is quite striking. Lana love cuddling and will hang out in your lap for attention. Her ears are up, and staying up. Lana is very easy going, receptive to training, she is housebroken and will ask to go out. Lana is walking politely on the leash, she learned to sit, down on command, she is crate trained sleeps in crate all night without a peep, If you have to leave during the day she will happily stay in her crate and will happily greet you with a smile. Lana is a sweet and gentle girl but can be a silly puppy and very playful puppy, she has gotten along with all the new dogs she has met but she is not a push over. Whoever adopts Lana will have to keep her socialized and more important to enroll her in obedience classes"
Lana will be in Lodi on May 6th for Lodi Adoption Day, come on out to meet this Beautiful German Shepherd.
We carefully choose homes for our puppies as they require owners who are home enough and have the time, energy and patience to guide the puppy through their chewing, digging, and mouthing stages (which can last through adolescence) and who will provide regular exercise, socialization and training so the puppy will grow up to be a mannerly adult dog. All puppies bark incessantly, dig and destroy things if they are left alone for long periods of time and thus, need to be with owners who do not leave them alone for long hours.
We can help more dogs if we have more volunteers. If you can help in any way, please contact us.
