Xena

Xena is a beautiful 7-year-old female German Shepherd who is looking for a new home through no fault of her own. Having spent her entire life outside, she is craving the love and attention of a new family who will adore her and give her the life she deserves.

Xena loves nothing more than being around people and getting attention. After an initial ‘woof’ Xena is a very friendly girl who loves meeting visitors especially when they have treats on offer!
Xena currently lives with older children, she can still jump up and mouth at times and needs to learn how to take treats nicely, she may be suited to a family with children over the age of 8 years old.

Xena knows her basic commands but would benefit from extra training to remind her of her doggy manners. When out walking, Xena is generally calm and happy to explore the neighbourhood, however she does bark and can be reactive when she sees another dog. Xena will need to be the only dog in her new home and will need to avoid other dogs for now, she is not suited to a home with cats or other small pets.

Xena is living with the condition Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI). EPI is when the pancreas does not produce sufficient enzymes to digest food correctly. This difficulty in digestion leads to poor absorption of much needed nutrients and often results in severe weight loss. EPI can be managed with medication and adjustments to diet. Xena’s EPI is currently managed with the combination of high-quality food and Creon tablets (an inexpensive pancreatic enzyme replacement).
Xena does need to put on a little weight and she will need to be on medication for the remainder of her life. We are looking for someone special who will commit to making sure Xena receives the treatment she needs to ensure she continues to be a healthy and happy dog.

Xena desperately wants to be welcomed inside with her forever family, having always been outside, she is lonely and craving attention, she is dreaming of a warm bed inside where she can cuddle up and get all the affection her heart desires.
