Gracie eagerly awaits the perfect person or family to help her break free from her shyness. This beauty is an 8 year old, 55 pound German Shepherd and Jindo mix.

After surviving five months as a stray, trust doesn’t come easily to her, but her longing for love shines through in every interaction with her foster family. You’ll often catch her approaching, ready to offer a lick or a curious sniff, yearning for that special connection.

When meeting Gracie you will notice she has an unusual stride. It’s a testament to her resilience, a reminder of an injury she was born with that has failed to slow her down. Despite her unique gait, she moves with a perky energy, which reflects her unwavering spirit.

Gracie enjoys the playful chaos of other dogs and finds comfort and joy in their camaraderie, which is why a multi-pup household would be a great match for her. She does need a fenced yard though; a safe place where she can explore and bond securely with her new person or family.

With unwavering commitment and a sprinkle of patience, Gracie is destined to thrive. Her gentle nature and unwavering affection has a special place in the hearts of her foster family, and in a forever home, she’s poised to blossom into the vibrant soul she was always meant to be.
