Heather – German Shepherd Rescue of NJ
Heather, a shepherd/ chow mix, was found as a stray and brought to the Cumberland County shelter and surprisingly was never claimed. She is a sweetheart of a girl who just loves people and would love to have a family to call her own. She can be a bit unsure of people at first, but she quickly warms up. She is very well mannered and LOVES belly rubs!
Heather is dog selective. While at the shelter she had several meet and greets with other dogs. With the right dog and a proper greeting, she may be okay. She was introduced to a male pit-mix and she was fine with him. The shelter staff also tested her with cats and she wasn’t sure what to make of them at first. Mr. Kitty got in a good swipe and she quickly gave him a wide berth. So with proper supervision and introductions, she may be able to co-habitate with cats as well. Heather is up-to-date on her shots and we will be working on getting her spayed.
