Krystal is an 8-10 year old German Shepherd whose Texas family lost their home and could no longer care for her. She is a sweet girl who likes all people she has been exposed to in her foster home, and she seems to have a special affinity for men, which is unusual for many dogs. She likes to push between your legs to position herself for pets and chest scratches.

Krystal can be bossy with other dogs, and she is best suited as the only dog in the home. She has not been tested with with cats or other small creatures. As a senior dog, she does not require long walks and is quite content to hang out with her person in the house or yard. She loves chew toys of all sorts, and has a special fondness for Bullibones (found at Walmart) and deer antlers. She is not at all destructive inside or outside the house, but she has been known to shred stray tissues or papers found on the floor. She is fully house trained and can confidently be left in the house as you run errands or such. She does not get on the furniture.

Krystal does not like mounting flights of stairs, and she uses a ramp to get in and out of her foster mom’s SUV. Krystal is fascinated by light and shadow, and she loves to chase reflected light or light from a laser pointer. Krystal originally came to us heartworm positive but has completed treatment. It is recommended she remain on a monthly heartworm prevention the rest of her life, but otherwise she is a healthy senior with many years of health ahead of her and tons of love and loyalty to give.

She is available for adoption through Western Australian Shepherd Rescue and comes fully vetted, up to date on all vaccinations and has been microchipped. If you are looking for a loyal, loving, stay at home dog, Krystal is the girl for you. Krystal’s foster is in Port Angeles, WA but the rescue has a few transport volunteers so would consider helping her get to a new home anywhere in the region.
