Luca

 

Luca is a petite, dark colored black and silver female.  She is about 3 years old.  She is very sweet and already housebroken.  She is loyal and protective, and feels responsible for watching over her people.  Luca is very well obedience trained, and walks nicely on a leash.  She has a lot of energy, and would be a good jogging partner.  She is an athletic dog, and could easily jump a 6 foot fence.  Luca prefers to be indoors, and likes to be around people.  Her ideal home would be with a family where her people are home most of the day.

Luca was turned in by their owners because she was overly protective of their baby.  Luca decided that it was her job to be sure that strangers did not get close to the infant, and she would discourage anyone that she didn't know or trust from touching or handling the baby.  

This is a natural motherly instinct in female shepherds.  With proper training, and a strong owner in the household, this problem could have been resolved.  However, Luca's owner did not want to take the time to teach her when to stop being protective, so they gave up on her.
