Sheba is a charming female German shepherd dog currently housed at Rebel Dogs Detroit.
Sheba loves to socialize and other dogs. She has had all her shots. She is already house-trained.
Here’s what Sheba’s friends at Rebel Dogs Detroit think of her:
“Sheba is a gorgeous, four-year old German Shepherd and recently recovered from a terrible skin infection. Sheba likes to play with other dogs, but can be reactive on the leash. This is a highly trainable trait and she otherwise walks fine. Sheba will walk around with a tennis ball in her mouth constantly. She loves to fetch and other games. Sheba is still a little nervous and would love a family who have plenty of time to spend with her and are able to reassure her she is a gem. She warms quickly up to new people and is ready for family life.”

He is a very sweet dog that is ready to find his new forever family. Harry would love a home where someone can be home to spend time with him and take him for daily walks and get lots of love and attention.
