#10796 Veela

Medium-size, Female, Adult Shepherd,
Energy Level 4

Energy Level 4 - Needs 1 hour of a mixture of off-leash playtime and or mental stimulation every day.

Are you an active person looking for an active dog? Are you looking for a dog to join you on your trips to the river, lake, or beach? What about a pup to take on long hikes or for your daily run, but also a pup who will enjoy a cuddle on the couch? Well I’m your gal! My name is Veela and I’m a 2 year old, 57 lb Shepherd mix who is looking for a family to call my own. I think I’m a lap dog and definitely need a family who will spoil me!

I like to have fun and I have a fair amount of energy, but nothing a couple long walks and some backyard time wouldn’t take care of. If I’m spending time in your backyard, you need a fence that’s over 4 feet as I can easily clear anything shorter, I also do fine on a 50 foot trolly tie out in the yard.
Look how fast I run!

I would love a doggy friend or two in my furever home, but they should be my size or larger as I have some prey drive and we want to make sure I don’t overwhelm anyone, check out me playing with the next door neighbor's dog. My dog friends are setting good examples for me, helping me to understand that when I “sit” it should be for more than a few seconds, and that I should probably cool it on the counter surfing (even though that’s where I know the hoomans keep the yummy snacks).

- I am house-broken
- Crate trained
- Working on leash manners
- Love to play with my ball - you can see here!

I'm ready to start snuggling! If you want to be my cuddle buddy apply to adopt me!

Veela is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is best in a home without cats and is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Veela is currently being fostered in York, PA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
