DEC 16 UPDATE: THIS GIRL HAS BEEN ADOPTED
Amazon, or Mazie as her volunteer fans call her, is a gentle giant. She's about 2 years old and as you can see by her photos, extremely underweight. But a good quality food and TLC will have her back in good form again shortly.
Mazie knows the command "sit" and walks so nicely on leash you really don't need one. She is showing signs of being house trained, but all shelter dogs need a week or two of your patience while you learn each other's routines.
Mazie seems to like other dogs and we can test her with cats. She's an extremely mellow dog right now but will probably be more lively once she's in a home and has her weight and health back. Mazie is also a bit shy at first, especially of loud or sudden movements, so a house without small children is ideal for her.
We recommend you research this breed before adopting such as these tips on the Anatolian Shepherd rescue web site Click here for rescue website information
