Shasta is a smart, sweet, sensitive, loyal and she is looking for a new home. She is 65 pounds and a white shepherd mix who is about 6 or 7 years old. Shasta draws compliments wherever she goes. She lives for walks (and can jog, too). Meeting and socializing with other dogs along the way is the highlight of her day (every now-and-then the doggy-chemistry is just not there and she might bristle or bark). Shasta has lived both in a one-canine home and with other dogs, including small ones. After a proper introduction, she ignored the family cat. She has shown patience and gentleness during her many opportunities around children. Always having slept indoors near her people, Shasta is proud to protect her household and bark an alert if she hears a stranger outside. Otherwise, she does not bark often unless really excited and occasionally speaks rather “human-like” when engaged in conversation with a person.
Shasta’s history and future: At about 2 years old, Shasta was lost/abandoned and found her way to a modest home in the Lake County countryside where she was adopted by a kind, elderly man; they became inseparable. In 2016 the man and Shasta moved to Calistoga to live with his daughter and her husband, who took great care of them, until the man recently passed away. Though Shasta is loved, the couple yearns to realize their long-awaited retirement dream of spontaneous travel (to many places Shasta cannot go). It is very important to them for Shasta to live her most fulfilled life, too, and they will settle for no less than a person/family who is an ideal match for her.
