Khaleese is a beautiful young adult Sheppard mix. She was surrendered to Cortez Rescue in August of 2021. We unfortunately don’t know details about her past but it does appear she was never trained in basic commands nor well socialized. Cortez staff and volunteers have put Khaleese into a structured and consistent behavioral skill development program along with human and dog socialization work. She is adapting well to her new structured training and in just a few days has demonstrated an eagerness to please and desire to learn. She is currently working thru her kennel manners, basic obedience such as sit, stay, recall and just being a calm and gentle girl. As with most Sheppard breeds, Khaleese is smart and responds well to the work and training. What she needs in a forever home is an experienced adopter who has the skills and time to commit to her continued development. In our opinion, initially at least, it would be best for Khaleese to be the only pet in the home. We have not yet been able to determine her prey drive. It is unknown at present how Khaleese would respond to children so given this uncertainty our recommendation is a for a home without children. Khaleese will require a secure yard with a high fence. Given the right handler and environment, we are confident that this girl will be a well behaved, loyal friend and loving companion. It will be essential that Khaleese’s adopter become familiar with the training and techniques that are currently being used so that they can be continued after she leaves Cortez Rescue, ensuring Khaleese continues on her path to success. Before leaving Cortez Rescue she will be given a full medical assessment to insure she remains in optimum health. Please review our Adopt-a-Pet page for further details about adoption fees and any possible transportation costs/issues or call with any further questions you may have about this lovable and delightful pup. This pup currently lives in Baja near Cabo San Lucas.
