Either Foster or
Permanent Home Sought
is an approx 3-yo spayed female GSD mix who is very loving, active and
entertaining. Luna loves interaction with humans of all ages and is
gentle even with babies and young children. She is fine with strangers
both in her home and out on walks.
For the most part, Luna gets along fine with the female
German Shepherd that she lives with. However, Luna wants to the alpha
dog and has fought several times with the other dog. [Note from GSRSV:
Luna’s behavior towards the other female dog is likely due to what I
call “gender jealousy”; it’s not uncommon for two female GSDs/mixes
living together to have intense rivalries.]
Luna was apprehensive at first when visiting with the
dogs at GSRVs rescue ranch, but soon became quite comfortable around
them. (See video at
It’s likely Luna has not been socialized much with other dogs during her
life. Based on what I observed at the rescue ranch, I think Luna would
be fine at a dog park. I also believe she’ll be fine living w/ a
confident male dog.
Luna’s owner Katie does not know how Luna is with cats,
so she’s seeking a home with no cats for her.
Luna is fully housetrained and non-destructive indoors.
Katie keeps her in a crate when she’s gone, but that’s to keep her
separate from her other dog so there are no fights. Luna sleeps either
in her crate—which she loves—or in the main part of the house.
It’s not known if Luna has received any obedience
training. She does respond well to basic commands “sit, down, off, and
go out.” Luna walks fine on leash but does pull to check out smells
along the way. She is also very reactive towards other dogs when walking
Luna loves rides in the car. She’s not crazy about
toys, but entertains herself (and others) by chasing and jumping for
Katie and her family adopted Luna from the Yuba County
Shelter in October 2019. The family is sadly seeking a new home for Luna
due to the fighting between Luna and their other dog.
There is no adoption fee for Luna, but prospective
adopters must meet the following requirements:
Loving family with or without children;
Luna must live indoors and have a lot of room to run and play outside;
Yard must have adequate fencing (at least 6 feet high
with no holes).
