Cheyenne is a pretty black-and-tan female German Shepherd Dog. She's young (estimated between 1-2 years), and still an adolescent. She's petite at just over 55 pounds.

Cheyenne is an unusual dog looking for someone to give her a job and a purpose. She needs to be more than a pet.

Cheyenne is an energetic girl with a very active mind. She's EXTREMELY smart -- even by the German Shepherd standard of smart dogs, she's off the charts in her problem-solving and relentlessness in staying on task. Unfortunately, without a job to channel this into, this can find expression in escape artistry -- she's a Houdini.

We think once she gets a job and a purpose, she will be able to channel her brain's amazing talent into something productive and be an incredible dog. That might be learning scent discrimination, competitive trialing -- anything. In fact, she has the potential to be a candidate for a veteran in need of a PTSD dog -- if you know a vet in need, please put him or her in touch! (We have a partnership with a veteran service nonprofit organization that could potentially help with the adoption fee for a qualified veteran.)

Cheyenne is very friendly with people. She's affectionate, gentle and loving in her foster home. She's got a sweet, biddable disposition and loves to please. She's also a velcro dog who must be next to her person. Nothing matters more to her than being with her person, and she hates being left alone.

She gets along fine with other dogs in her foster home, but she needs to be fed separately. She rides well in the car. She's good on a leash, and she's learning house manners in her foster home (including house training and crate training).
