Sydney (also known as Melody) the eight-year-old German Shepherd mix ended up at the shelter because her original family became homeless and could no longer care for her. But this means that she has a lifetime of experience being a family dog, and we know that she gets along with children. Sydney is very sweet and will give you some doggy kisses while you pet her. Sydney is a gorgeous dog. More than one customer stopped us to ask more about Sydney while we were out on our walk. She walks great on leash but also didn’t mind stopping every once in a while so we could pet her. Sydney can get a little barky around other dogs, but it was easy enough to redirect her and keep walking. Be sure to say hello to Sydney on your next visit to the shelter! Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
