My name is Roxy - please adopt me

Roxy - 7 months old.

Roxy is a young girl who needs a home with GSD experience, as she has learnt if she mouths she gets attention and will demand attention all day long. The mouthing isn't just a quick mouth, she is using pressure
and is knowingly using pressure to get attention and getting what she wants. The mouthing is mainly aimed at the female owner rather than the male owner and will listen to the male owner more.

When the volunteer rang the door bell she didn't bark and was in another room to start with as she would have run out the door. On coming out of the other room she walked over had a sniff and then jumped up - no barking, current owners have said she isn't a barker and if the dogs
next dog bark she rarely responds.

Roxy sat for a treat and took the treat gently but once she thought she should get another treat she jumped on the volunteer and if that didn't work mouthed the volunteers arm.

She has been to training classes where she has learnt her basic commands such as sit and down. She walks on a harness as she doesn't like a collar but will pull on the harness. She goes out on walks with a local dog walker and other dogs and loves to play with them, she has been
socialised with other dogs, a family member has a cocker spaniel who visits or she goes their house. She loves to be outside in the garden watching the birds or playing with a toy.

Roxy is currently in a crate when left alone as she may chew items but her favourite thing to do is steal items off the worktops - again this seems to be for attention.

Further training is a must for this girl to keep her mentally and physically active, she will become bored very quickly without any stimulation. She is a smart girl (she has mastered the art of opening doors) and will do well with more training and boundaries.

Roxy is fine with people when out walking but visitors to the house would need to be aware that she will mouth for attention.

Children - she isn't good with one because of the mouthing and pressure she is using, and two a child was teasing her in the vets and this has resulted in Roxy barking at children when she sees them. Due to the
mouthing she would be best placed in a home with no children.

Roxy is fine when travelling in the car.

Roxy is being re-homed as her current owners understand she requires a more active home to keep her from attention seeking and the mouthing becoming worse. Male owner works away for short periods but when away Roxy is becoming more difficult for the female owner to manage

This girl is still young and with the right training and guidance her bad habits could be overcome very quickly. Can you be the person to give this pretty girl a home?
