Default Meet my rescue white GSD Zoey

This is Zoey who is about 15 months old, according to the GSD rescue group we got her from. She has been in a rough patch, wandering the streets, foxtails in her ears, tapeworms, who knows what else as it appeared she had been on the street for a while. Rescue group did the initial medical care and we go see our vet on Friday. I think there's still something going on with her ears, maybe another foxtail in there. And we'll do another fecal test to check to make sure those worms are gone.

She needs some meat on her bones and some muscle. She's pretty concave at the hips. She's loose-limbed in way I think puppies are and considering she's not really a puppy, I hope that won't be a problem for her.

I'm amazed at how easy she was on her first night. She slept in our room with us, deciding the dog bed was better than the floor about halfway through the night. No whining. No barking. I know that will change as she adjusts and lets her true personality come out. She is just so sweet, very willing to please, easily responds to corrections. She's mouthy so we'll be working on that. Not completely housebroken but learning to potty on command. She's a bit scared of the bells our last dog used to ring to go outside so I'm not pushing it.

She picked up sit, come, off pretty quickly.

We are absolutely smitten!

Not that it matters to us a bit, but does she look like a purebred?

She is sweet. A very pretty girl I'm happy that you guys found each other. She looks right at home.

She's an absolute beauty. Welcome.

Absolutely. It'd be nice if her nose was black, and her eyes look a little light, but what else could possibly be in there but White GSD?

Thank you, everyone. We are having so much fun getting to know each other. And thanks, Typhoon, for your thoughts. We thought she looked pretty pure bred to us too but someone on Facebook made an odd comment that had us wondering. Oh well. We love her like crazy already and I can just imagine how it will be as the bond grows.

She appears to have the GSD water gene. And possibly the Houdini one too.

Her face has a lot of character, the pink nose just adds to it and makes her look feminine. She's lovely.

Thank you all. She is so wonderful, sweet and lovey. She is already learning things. Yesterday she was terrified of going up and down the stairs. Tonight she is flying up and down them on her own. Time to set up some one-on-one time with our trainer, after vet visit tomorrow.
