Shasta is a 1-year-old female we got from an animal shelter. She's a typical youngster who is happy, active and ready for anything. She would have been a great adoption candidate but she had a low Von Willebrand's factor so she needed some special care during spay surgery. Our vet gave her plasma before the procedure and she pulled through without issue. Similar care will need to be taken in the event she needs any surgery in the future but it doesn't seem to have any effect on her daily life. Shasta shares a kennel with a large male and doesn't have any trouble getting along with him. She is stimulated by things outside her kennel though so a solid fence would be best for her in a home. Shasta loves people and should be a good addition for any home prepared for the energy of a youngster.
