Adopted on 08/02/2014
Shadow is a 7-year-old Sable female GSD who had a loving family, including children. When the family lost their home, they moved in with relatives who had no room for Shadow. A friend tried taking her, but the dog in that home resented her and made her life miserable; so the owner contacted GSRNE. We were grateful that we had a foster home available for this sweet girl.
There are not a lot of people willing to step up for a dog who is no longer a youngster; but those who do, tell us that it’s one of the best things they’ve ever done. That’s certainly what we’re hearing from Shadow’s adopters! When they had applied to adopt a rescue GSD, they had a female Chocolate Lab who was 6 or 7 years old, and they were hoping to find a male who would enjoy being part of their family and not be too pushy with their girl. Sadly, their dog was diagnosed with cancer and died before we had the right male for them to adopt.
When we told them about Shadow, they wanted to meet her…and she seemed to choose them on the spot. She loves having her neck rubbed and quickly let Bill (her new Dad) know that a neck massage was very much appreciated; she taps him with her paw when she wants him to “do it again, please.” She loves going for walks, playing with her new toys and just being with Cheryl and Bill. Their son visits, with his dog, Coco; and their daughter brings her rescue dog, Oakley, and Shadow enjoys the romps with other canines; but she loves the quiet aftermath, when it’s just her with her forever family.
Shadow is now GSRNE # 394!
