When it comes to a doggie bed, not all of our dogs are as lucky as C.J.
Wish List Request: We’re making a special donation request for Kuranda Beds for some of our dogs. They are a comfortable, elevated, chew-proof, easy-to-clean dog bed that lifts the dog off the cold hard concrete and provides firm orthopedic support for older dogs or dogs with joint discomfort. It would be a valuable donation that would last for years to come and benefit many dogs while they wait for their forever homes (and forever beds). The Large or X-Large sizes would be ideal for German Shepherds.
A German Shepherd Rescue Success Story!
Before coming to the GS Rescue Leica was in a high-kill city shelter, having been turned in for no apparent reason. She wasn’t with us long before she met Jeremy, who had recently lost his own German Shepherd. After some extensive temperament testing with her and a few other dogs, he realized she would make a great therapy dog candidate like his past GSDs. Leica had found a home! Jeremy named her after the Russian stray dog Laika that was the first animal in space aboard Sputnik 2, but with the German spelling after the camera company of the same name. Like with any new adoption, things were a little rough at first as both dog and human adjusted to each other, but Jeremy knew that she had by far the best temperament he’d ever seen in a GSD. In a short amount of time Leica passed basic and advanced obedience, and went on to be certified by the AKC as a Canine Good Citizen. She is currently in training as a therapy dog. Everyone that meets her is so impressed and assumes she came from a high-end breeder. People are always surprised she’s a rescue. Rescues are just as good as dogs from breeders, and whether they’re destined to be service dogs or family pets, they give just as much loyalty and love.
Have any leftover hip and joint supplements, or interested in making a donation?
German Shepherd Rescue has some wonderfully tempered dogs that are in need of added supplements due to joint discomfort. The kennel is no place for a dog like Rhett, especially with arthritis. If you have any joint supplements, specifically powdered formulas, it would be a huge help if you could please donate to the Rescue. With the dogs under stress, powders like Missing Link Hip and Joint are more easily absorbed than pills. We could really use it for some of our dogs.
Special Need: We are extremely low on wet canned food. If you are interested in helping out the dogs perhaps the next time you are at Costco or Trader Joe’s grab a few cans or a case of wet food for the dogs in Burbank. They are used to eating Pedigree or Trader Joe’s canned food that we mix with dry. The dogs will appreciate it. Thanks. Woof woof!
