Shasta is a great dog, she really is. She is a great listener and knows basic commands and loves to play fetch and go for walks.
Shasta LOVES winter time – it’s her favourite season, she loves to play in the snow and toss it around with her nose. She is a runner and will bolt so cannot be let off leash, unless in a well fenced-in area and she will a dig a hole or two so will need to be supervised in the yard which will need to be fully fenced, preferably 6 feet minimum.
Shasta has always been around children and always gets along well – she enjoys gentle pets on her head and she gives ‘paw’. She knows ‘sit, ‘shake paw’, ‘no’ and ‘come’. Shasta also enjoys treats whether it’s bones or meat of some sort.
She usually is a good walker but she can be a puller and take you for a walk instead so needs to be reminded of leash manners. She would be a great companion for someone looking for love as she is very affectionate. She has always been the only pet and she has been known to get along with certain dogs but not others, so would likely be best suited as the only dog in a home, or perhaps another dog with a calm personality, she would have to meet them first. No cats or small animals to be around Shasta due to her breed’s strong prey drive.
Shasta is crate trained but no longer uses a crate, she is currently fed twice a day and has no allergies, medications or medical conditions. Shasta enjoys the radio for noise when alone and she is used to a night light in the dark while sleeping. She will need her vaccinations updating and will either be spayed prior to adoption or adopted on a strict spay/non-breeding contract.
