Samson and Maya are a very energetic duo and at times can be like two peas in a pod.
Maya who is four, is a gentle girl who takes some time to warm up to people. She seems to warm up quicker to men then she does to women. She has an understanding of some basic commands but would benefit from some more formal training. She is very treat motivated so this will certainly help with her training.
Samson who is five, is the more outgoing one. He is also the alpha of the two. Samson has a better understanding of his basic commands, but like Maya, he would benefit from some more training as well. During our assessment, we noticed that he can become possessive of certain items when it comes to strangers. But with people that he trusts, he is fine.
Neither one have been around young children. So they would be best suited to a home with older children or an adult only home that is knowledgable of the breed and has previous german shepherd experience. They have had limited exposure to cats and also live in the home with a small dog.
Maya and Samson are a bonded pair and we would like to keep them together if we can. GSRNJ is willing to drop the adoption fee to $400 for both of them. Both are spayed and neutered and are up-to-date on their shots.
