My name is Octavia, and I have just as big of a personality as my name! I have a lot of energy, and I would love a family that wants to keep me active and busy! Sometimes I forget how big I’m getting and I act like I’m still a little puppy! I can use a little work on my manners, because I tend to forget that I have them when I get really excited. I need a family that is willing to put a little effort into reminding me of what a good girl I am, because I really am a good girl under all this energy! Come and play with me today, and see if I would be a good fit for your active family!

* Tesha suffers from Cushing’s Disease (hyperadrenocorticism), which is a result of chronic overproduction of excess hormones from the adrenal glands. She also suffers from arthritis. Tesha will need to be on medications for life to manage these conditions. These medications cost about $216 a month.
Tesha is an absolute doll that loves games of fetch, belly-rubs, and snuggle sessions. She came to 4 Luv of Dog Rescue missing her right front leg. She gets along very well without it but would recommend a home situation where she doesn’t need to do a lot of stairs to be let outside to potty.
Tesha absolutely LOVES people, does well with dogs, is potty-trained, and is left loose in foster’s house when they are away. She has also done well around young but respectful children. With all of her wonderful characteristics, Tesha is a special, loving dog that deserves a happy retirement home.
Tesha is an 8 year old Shepherd.
