Hi everyone, my name is Bridgette. I’m a petite, energetic 4-year-old German shepherd Mix (some call me a pocket or mini-shepherd).
I’ve been living at the kennel for a long time now, patiently waiting for my forever family to find me. The Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue (MAGSR) has been taking good care of me, but I’m longing for a home and family of my own to love and give lots of kisses. I’m a smart girl with a strong personality, so I need a home with an experienced family who will commit to going to training with me.
I like going on long walks, especially if we pass by the creek or baby pool along the way. Then, I jump in, splash around, and chomp at the water. Another fun thing I do on my walks is roll around on the ground until my collar is filled with grass, or leaves, or straw. I hear people say it looks like I’m wearing a lei, just like a Hawaiian princess. I look especially pretty in the fall when the leaves are so many different colors.
My favorite thing of all is playing ball—any kind of ball. ‘Fetch’ is fun, especially when the ball goes high in the air so I can jump up to catch it. I really like jumping; sometimes I jump as high as I can even when there is no ball to catch. Maybe that is why the volunteers call me their Little Circus Monkey.
I like the Jolly Balls we have in our play areas best of all. I always look for the biggest one, pick it up by the handle, and run around the yard shaking it until I get tired. Then I roll it down the hill to my favorite spot under the big tree and lay down for a rest. Sometimes a volunteer will play “Find It” with me before I get to play with the balls. Treats sure do taste better when I have to sniff them out myself!
I’m very athletic and need a lot of physical exercise. I've heard the volunteers say I would excel at competitive sport games like Flyball and Treibball. I would like someone to teach me to play because I know both games involve playing with balls, and you know I love balls!
