    See this is why I am not allowed to go to shelters! We went to pick up our transport dog and this sweetie stole my heart:Laugh: I have a very good friend who runs a 501 GSD rescue, I am trying to get them to pull her and have offered to foster if they do. FOSTER, not keep. NOT adopt. repeat 100 times, I will NOT adopt this dog. No way, NO NO NO.......but LOOK at that face:Adore::Adore:

    Me too, and I am a sucker for seniors, her gray muzzle needs some kisses!! She has a wound on her leg (other side) from her cage mate attacking her and she is underweight. She broke my heart.


    NOT adopt!

      luvies like this are the reasons i have stopped myself from going to rescue events, looking on the pets sections of CL, Kijiji and Petfinder.com. I would want to save everyone, and it just isn't possible. :( (i support rescues, i just cant go to petsmart,etc on the days that they are having adoption days) lol :)
      Good Luck on convicing your friend to save this baby. and better luck to you, because i'm a sucker for the gray hair!

      My family and I are big-time German Shepard lovers. This old girl looks like a real sweetheart. Unfortunately I'm not in a position right now to adopt another pet, especially a dog, but I sure hope she finds a good home soon.

        Yeah I just can't go. Look at those eyes, if you foster him you will keep him.

              Welllllllllll....... this is the update from the shelter:

              Great thank you! I will keep you posted on when we can get her in for surgery and when she'll be ready for pick up.


              So looks like we will have a new foster child. I am thinking of naming her Promise.
