Kayah is a young (about 1 year old) black and tan German Shepherd who gave birth to her 5 puppies on the streets of Quitman County, GA and was brought to the shelter there just hours after all the puppies were born. She was traumatized with a catch pole and was hiding in the corner of her shelter kennel, avoiding contact with anyone.
Once transported to our rescue, she started taking care of her puppies but she is very reserved when it comes to people. Her puppies recently left the nest and she is now in a foster home in Palm Coast, FL, which she shares with multiple other dogs. She was also cat tested at one point and she was very afraid of the cat.
Kayah is very reserved when it comes to people, including her foster mom who has been taking care of her for four months now. Although she seems to enjoy being petted and spoiled, she does not initiate contact or attention and she will hide when a stranger comes around. She seems to gain some confidence from another playful dog in the same house so we are looking for a home with another dog for her, but keep in mind that a dog introduction will have to be done in steps due to Kayah's fears. A perfect home for her would be low key, with no small children and someone who has the time and patience to show her some structure and help her gain some confidence. We do require a secure 6 foot fence for her to ensure that she does not try to get out if spooked by loud noises.
Her adoption fee is $250.
