“My name is Cheyenne and I am an almost 12 year old German Shepherd mix. I am looking to find a true forever home as I’ve not too long ago lost a home and now I need to find a new home again. All of these moves are not easy on a mature girl like myself. I long for a quiet, stable home.

“Currently my home is directly under a flight path and it stresses me out.  My family has tried EVERYTHING to help me but there’s been nothing that has worked. Staying alone at home isn’t my favorite. I do not do crates! My dream home would be one where a human is around for company often and they’d understand that I need time to adapt once more to a new situation. Once I do that and I feel secure again, I just know life is going to be very good. I’ll reward the person that provides me with the rest-of-my-life-home with all the love and loyaly they could ever hope for in a dog!

“I can’t recall if I’ve ever lived with another dog and my current family can’t tell you either. When I’m out and about I act like I don’t like other dogs.  But this may not be the case. I come on strong but perhaps a dog savvy person could teach me how to live with a submissive dog? I can’t make any promises though! I do live with a cat now. My family introduced me slowly and carefully to the kitty and we have co-habitated just fine. There are children in my home  and I’ve been a good girl around them. I appreciate kind and gentle kids.

“I enjoy car rides, walks and hikes and spending time outside with my people. I am a good size at 70 pounds so you must be able to manage my strength if I pull on leash when I see a squirrel! I can still manage stairs but there may come a time I cannot so do keep that in mind. I would hate to lose another home just because I can no longer climb stairs (I heard that happens!). At this time I need a potty break about every 4-6 hours.

The hope is that I will find a new home very soon as no one is happy about my anxiousness. My current family are committed to finding me a great home and for that I am grateful.”
