#517 Spirit

It’s hard to believe that this sweet girl was left at a high-kill shelter two years ago.  Lucky for Spirit an all breed rescue saw her just before her time was up and got her out of there.  The all breed rescue were immediately impressed with her friendly nature and decided she would have her best chance to find a forever home if she could be where people would look for a German Shepherd specifically.  

Spirit was adopted two years ago today on June 8, 2019 by a young couple who fell in love with her story and photos.  We know so many people are afraid to adopt an older dog—not because they don’t like them, or are afraid of any extra care or money that might be needed, but because of how soon they might lose them.  It didn’t matter to Gina and Chris that she was older —already nine years old. They were just committed to giving her the best life they could for as long as they would have her.  We are so grateful for people like Gina and Chris. 

Happy Adoption Anniversary Day Spirit!

Your GSRNE Family loves you! ♥️xoxo
