Kennedy (New Digs)

Age: Adult
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Gender: Female

Meet Kennedy (New Digs)!

Kennedy is a survivor. I rescued her in 2018 from a shelter in Rockport where she had endured 140 mph winds in an outdoor cage during Hurricane Harvey. That was in addition to whatever abuse she endured before she was taken to the shelter.

But Kennedy is resilient. She became a treasured member of my pack of pups, and has been a faithful friend to me for these past 6 years.

Not only has Kennedy healed so much in this time, but she has been pivotal in my own healing. She has helped me feel safe while living alone in my home, and kept me company on countless solo walks and hikes. She’s joined me on trips to state parks and sat with me next to lakes enjoying sunsets. She’s snuggled with me while I cried and brought so much joy into my life.

I hope now that Kennedy can find a wonderful home with someone who can love her as much as I do. Kennedy is 6 years old, most likely a Dutch Shepherd mix, and 81 lbs. She is spayed, and is fully up to date with vaccinations, the rabies vaccine, heartworm prevention, a microchip, and monthly flea+tick meds. She loves to just lounge around the house and would do anything for a carrot, her favorite treat. She can even catch one in the air if you throw it up for her! She is great on a leash and is very well-behaved, as well as housebroken. I think she would do best in either a one-dog household or one with only big dogs, as I am rehoming her for aggression with one of my little dogs. I have not had the chance to see her around children but she has always been sweet with everyone she’s met, after she’s gotten over her initial timidity.

Kennedy is an absolutely wonderful dog, and I know that she will be a wonderful addition to your life and home.
