Pet of the Week: CJ

Get to know her: Cheyenne June, who goes by CJ, is available for adoption through German Shepherd Rescue and Adoptions. CJ is a very sweet, gentle 3-year-old girl who was found tied to a volunteer’s front gate one morning. She had been there all night shivering and was so afraid. But like many German shepherds, with love and stability, she bounced right back. She is a resilient, smart, loving girl who is a fast learner and wants so much to please. CJ loves to play, give kisses and go on walks and rides. She would do well with an active family that has another dog. CJ needs a strong parent because sometimes she likes to be the boss. She also likes everyone: dogs, cats and children. She is spayed, micro-chipped and current on all her vaccines.

For more information: German Shepherd Rescue and Adoptions is a nonprofit organization of volunteers committed to offering care and adoption services to neglected, stray or surrendered German shepherds. The group is based in Raleigh and works in the Carolinas and Virginia. While in the care of GSRA, shepherds are spayed or neutered in addition to having other medical needs addressed. They are placed in foster homes to be nurtured, loved and housetrained. Foster parents learn each dog’s temperament and work on obedience and behavior training, allowing the dog to be placed in an environment best for both the dog and the adopter. Adoption fees are $250.
