Arrival Story: Desi came from a very good breader in Illinois. She enjoys playing with her Boston Terrier brother, Ike, a lot. Unfortunately the first other dog she met( another German Shepherd charged and rolled her so she is fearful of stranger dogs.
Desi lives next to a school and lived outside in the back yard last winter during the day while the family was at work and school. We later found out that the children were throwing snow balls at Desi and running her up and down the fence. Now Desi is sceptical of strangers even children. But once she gets to know you she is a big love and all she wants is to please you.
Bio: Desi has been working very hard to get used to strangers and is making some improvement we are very proud of her. At this point I have made a VERY TOUGH decision that Desi would be better off in different home that is not right next to a school and have strangers walking next to it constantly.
I am looking for a person that understands German Shepherds and will love Desi as much as we do. She is an incredibly sweet soul that deserves an environment that doesn't Constantly present her with her fears. We are in Southeast Iowa but will travel if I can find a good home for Desi
