Rescue Me ID: 16-12-30-00194Oneida (female)

White Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Oneida is a healthy young white GSD, approx. 3.5 years old. She loves kids and people, has a mild temperament, and is fully housebroken. She was rescued from southern California two years ago following a coyote attack and subsequent quarantine for rabies, as her original owner had not vaccinated her. Due to this early trauma, Oneida has some special needs and is looking for a home that will provide her with security and additional training. The following are her prominent behavioral challenges: 1) Pretty severe separation anxiety. Oneida is perfectly calm and mellow when her people are around, but is not comfortable being left. She was on ... (Read More)prozac for around 6-8 months and in retrospect, I think it did help, although at the time I wasn't sure it was necessary so I took her off. 8 weeks later, her anxiety is really pronounced, so I have started her back on it. She took to a crate easily for her trainer (but not for me when I 1st got her), so crating would likely help quite a bit. I live in a 'tiny home' and simply do not have room for a crate; 2) Definitely compromised hearing and possibly eyesight, but neither pose much of an issue; 3) Her early trauma combined with her natural shepherd character means that she needs a very experienced handler who is confident and skilled, and can provide her with security and peace of mind. 4) Lastly, she is dog-aggressive initially, but with proper introductions, she actually does really well with most dogs. I listed her as 'good with dogs', because I think she would do great with a buddy or especially in a pack. When with her trainer, she has done great with all the dogs, big and small, and I think a pack would really help with her sense of security. She really goes after cats, so no cats in the home please! Overall, Oneida is a real sweetie. I have watched her blossom from very consistently anxious and withdrawn to a tail-wagging (I call her Thwacker because her tail is always thwacking a wall hard when she's wagging), belly-rub-receiving girl. The problem is that my housing and work situation changed abruptly and drastically about 10 months ago, and it's been a struggle to give her what she needs. My work is requiring more and more travel, and finding care for her where she feels safe and secure is very difficult. I am also quite low income and cannot continue with the amount of training she should have. Finally, she requires a much more experienced and confident handler than I am. I have tried and have made progress over the past few years, but I am convinced that she needs more than me to really thrive. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a White Shepherd in Oregon
    White Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Oregon if they match your IifestyIe. A White Shepherd is a German Shepherd bred for its white coat. White Shepherds are more timid and sensitive than German Shepherds and should be trained gently. White Shepherds are very protective, but not hostile; they make great guard dogs and wonderful companions. White Shepherds should be well socialized early in life. White Shepherds that are properly trained and socialized are good with children and other pets. This breed can adapt to apartment life with sufficient exercise.

lnteresting White Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost Oregon Spay & Neuter Clinics
    White Shepherds resulted from a genetic accident when some German Shepherd puppies were born without color. White Shepherds are only recognized by the United Kennel Club as a breed distinct from German Shepherds. White Shepherds are trained as guide dogs. White Shepherds tend to live longer than other dog breeds. White Shepherds are especially protective of children.
