Hi, my name is Tori and I was born on Halloween day 2017, so I will soon be 3! Even though I am a young lady, I have endured a lot in my short life. I was taken into SEGSP Rescue after my owner surrendered me from a life in the backyard. I did have at least one litter of puppies, this may be why I am such a petite little lady; I only weigh around 40 pounds. As you can see from my photos, I also endured some type of eye trauma in my former life that was not addressed, so now I cannot see out of it. Don’t worry, my foster mom took me to a fancy eye doctor called an ophthalmologist and he says I can keep it. My eye doesn’t cause me any pain and you would swear that I can see out of it, but I really can’t. On top of having a hurt eye, I also had to have a surgery to keep me from having any more puppies and I had those pesky heartworms! I am finally over all of my trials and am ready to live a full and active life!
Like I mentioned earlier, I am a petite little lady, but please don’t mistake that for weakness. I am a tough little cookie and like to rough house with my much bigger foster brothers. Supposedly, I didn’t like other dogs when I was surrendered, and honestly it took me a little while to completely decide but I really DO love other dogs. I love having someone to play with, run with, and just hang out with. I have this one foster brother that we do absolutely everything together so I’m definitely going to need a friend. I haven’t been around female dogs very much so I’m not sure how I feel about them, but I love my foster brothers. Sometimes I try to be a little pushy and try to boss my oldest foster brother around but that’s usually because I think he is going to steal my bone.
When I came into rescue I was very underweight and hungry. Due to this, I sometimes still think each meal or bone could be my last and I may get a little snappy so my foster mom thinks a home without small dogs or small children would be best.
My foster mom says that I’m not super high energy but when I hear my food bowl rattle, I go into turbo mode and go zooming around really fast. Once I’ve had my food and my nighttime bone I settle down and love to hang out on the couch. I’m not really what they call a velcro GSP, I’m ok with just being in the room with you but don’t have to be all over you. Everyone I meet tells my foster mom that I am “so sweet” and so far, I haven’t met anyone that I haven’t liked.
I’m friendly but still cautious in some situations, sometimes when I’m going for a walk the loud trucks make me nervous but I’m way better than I used to be!
I don’t mind my crate and my foster parents leave the door open so I can go in if I want to. I stay in my crate while my foster parents are at work and have this really great lady that comes and lets me and my foster brothers out after a few hours. I don’t mind being in there and sleep in there throughout the night. I am house trained, know how to sit, lay down, and stay (still working on that one) and I walk well on a leash. If you have an active family with at least one other medium to large dog (no small animals, cats, or small children please) I would love to meet you and my future sibling(s). My foster mom wants to make sure she picks me the best forever home so she will have to make sure I get along with everyone before I can move in with you.
If you are able to give me a life that is full of outdoor activities, rides in the car, long walks until I can get back to running, and a friend to explore with please fill out an adoption application and email my foster mom Mandy at email@example.com.
Since Tori is up to date on vaccines, spayed and heartworm negative, her adoption fee is $375.
