Mika and Naya are two 8-year-old, spayed, German Shepherd sisters in need of a new home following the death of their owner.
They are now in foster where they have turned out to be the most delightful girls, a real pleasure to have around.
We know that for the last couple of years that they have been kept outside in a makeshift kennel with a paddock to play in and pretty much left to their own devices although someone that came in to look after the horses every day has been playing ball with them and they really do love to play ball.
Despite the fact that they have been living outside they are clean in their kennel.
In their foster home they are friendly, loveable girls who just want company and love to play. They crave attention because they have not had that for some considerable time now.
They are very quiet and only bark occasionally although they would probably be protective of their property.
They have met dogs in the foster home with whom they are fine. Naya seems to get on with all dogs but Mika seems to prefer males. Mika loves playing with Basil Bear but Naya is a little scared of him. We don't know about cats but they would probably chase.
Naya is particularly sweet and loves a cuddle whereas Mika is a little more independent and she is also the dominant of the two although they get on really well even when food is around.
The girls are really bonded and we think it would be cruel after all this time to separate them so we will be looking for a home that will take them both together.
We were told that they didn't like men but that is clearly not true as you will see from the photo taken the same day that they came into foster.
These girls lived on a rural property with land so they haven't been walked so being on lead is new to them. After just a few days they have adapted to being lead walked although they do pull a little but that will lessen over time and with further training.
Their coats were a bit of a mess so we have begun the grooming process although neither are keen so we are doing it a little at a time.
A really smashing pair of girls that we have no concerns about and whoever adopts them will be very lucky indeed to have two such lovely girls.
