Skyla (15 M.O | F )

My name is Skyla and I am 15 months old. I can’t seem to sniff out a family who will love me forever and I’m really not sure why?

I love people and always greet them with a kiss, a sniff of their pockets for treats, and a big happy wag of my tail! I have so much love to give, that I’m looking for a family where someone will be home a fair bit. The people at GSRV think I’m a very clever girl as I learn tricks incredibly quickly – well, I am a German Shepherd! I would love to go to training to show you just how great I can be. Whenever I get to go for walkies, I’m a very good girl on my lead!

Right now, I’m quite worried around other dogs, so I use my big bark to tell them to go away. I’d like to learn to play happily with doggy friends, but I will first need some help and understanding from my new family, so I can learn in my own time.

GSRV say that special people called trainers will help teach me in a positive way, to be happy around other doggies, but for now Santa Paws, I need your help finding a home with no other furry family members. I’m still a young, silly, playful girl so apparently, I also need a family with children aged 8 or older.

All I want for Christmas is a special family who will love me and that I can kiss, cuddle and give that love in return. I hope that isn’t too much to ask.


Skyla is such a loving girl and deserves a family of her very own. Please share her letter! 🎄
