(Special Needs)

SPECIAL NEEDS Sydney has completed ophthalmology, neurology consults including an MRI along with other tests. The results are that sweet Sydney suffered a traumatic skull / brain injury as a young puppy. Sydney is affectionate, plays well with other large dogs, loves to run, is too mouthy for young children & NO CATS. She has some visual, cognitive & sensory processing impairments. Sydney is ready for that special home.

Sydney is a happy, enthusiastic, friendly girl. She is small for a shepherd and probably full grown. She loves to eat and play, especially in the morning. Sydney sleeps all night in her crate and loves to go on walks. Her brain injury doesn’t slow her down much, but her forever family should be aware that she is a bit mouthy for her age. She responds well to a firm “no” when she plays too rough or gets into something she shouldn’t (like the pantry). She knows her name and comes when called. She does well with a regular potty break schedule- her general cue is pacing, especially near the door, but she doesn’t vocalize or wait long. She loves to play tug, chase larger balls, and chew on soft toys or bones. Sydney doesn’t see well, so sometimes she gets lost or loses a toy. She hears very well and makes up for her vision impairment nearly flawlessly in a familiar environment. She does not have an aggressive nature, but she doesn’t understand that the cat is not another soft toy to chew. She would do well with an older dog who would be patient with her, but she would be overwhelmed with a puppy. She is very food motivated but she has not/cannot learn basic obedience like sit. She is very excited in new environments or when food is around- she will run excitedly in circles when she is very stimulated.

Sydney wants a loving home where she can be with calm, kind, gentle people who understand that she may need a little extra patience, time, or direction.

Atlas is a sweet, handsome 2 yo boy. He is friendly towards dogs and people (we don't know about cats). He is young and energetic, and would love to go to an active household. Though he could use some work on his manners, he'll make up for it with kisses and snuggles.
