#118 Buddy

Buddy GSRNE #118 Adopted in January 2002 Buddy is generally doing well. He is slowing down a bit (he’s 11-12 yrs. old), and has some arthritis in his hips. We are giving him Glyco-flex III (glucosamine) and it seems to help. We also take him for at least 4 walks a day.. Buddy loves his toys and will play for hours with us. We don’t toss things as far as we used to, but he will chase his “squeaky” toys and bring them back to us to throw again. Buddy sleeps with us on our queen-sized bed and...

#116 Nyla-Jean

Nyla-Jean GSRNE #116 Adopted in October, 2001    When we met Nyla, we were looking for a white Shepherd to fill a huge void, left when we lost our beloved Cain, a White GSD my husband had found in a pound. When we adopted him, 2 year old Cain was only hours away from being euthanized. He was with us for 9 years, and we lost him when he was 11. Nyla had spent most of her life in a backyard, suffering from constant ear infections and flea allergies, and she was pathetically underweight....

#108 Kizzy

Kizzy (was Inca) GSRNE #108 Adopted    This is the story of one of our placements, Inca (renamed Kizzy), with her handler/owner Cil! Inca was found at a local pound. As a dark-colored dog, many people who might have adopted Kizzy were intimated by her and therefore weren't interested. It's kind of funny, because she's incredibly friendly and playful, but this happens sometimes. The shelter manager knows a good dog when she sees one, and we were thrilled to take this dog in.

#090 Sheba

Sheba was turned into GSRNE from an all breed rescue that didn't focus on GSD's. Sheba had suffered horrific abuse and needed someone to trust and teach her about the world. When she arrived, she was full of fear and distrust. Sheba was placed into a special foster home that was used to dealing with behavioral problems and issues. In time, using love and tenderness, Sheba learned about rules and how to "win". She was able to romp with other dogs and take her time learning about humans....

#000 Sport

We were able to evaluate dogs and collaborate with other rescues to save dogs we weren't able to take in. We worked with New England vets and shelters to help out numerous dogs. Sport was one of those dogs we evaluated and another rescue placed. I wanted to send you a story about Sport. I believe you originally had him in Wayland before he was sent to the Blue Dog Shelter in Brockton. His picture is still on your website. I adopted Sport Christmas week of 2003. He was such a great companion...
