I just got home, and this sweet girl was dumped off..
I know she's not lost, the people at the gas station by my house said she was thrown out of a vehicle.
A lot of people do this in my town because they know I take dogs in...I can't stand to see them hungry and scared.
She's a very sweet girl, and needs a good home. I believe she is a purebred German Shepherd, I can't say for sure, but she really appears to be. I think she is 12-14 wks old. She's not big yet. She has been badly abused, it takes her a little while to warm up to you. She isn't mean or aggressive, just shy.
Please don't let that turn you off though...she does warm up quickly to kind words and petting, and at such a young age, I guarantee with socialization, within a couple of weeks, you won't be able to tell she was ever mistreated.
She is COVERED in fleas...I mean, like it looks like an ant hill, there is so many swarming on her body...but I am dipping her and putting Frontline on her now. I know by tomorrow she'll be flea free.
She is inside with me now. She has really opened up. Loves to lay at your feet, even fetch a ball for me three times. Loves to play, and is gentle and respectful. I think potty training her will be a breeze...she seems clean natured. I let her out to potty, and she immediately did her business, so she must have been holding it. And since I let her back inside, she hasn't had an accident yet.
She really loves her belly rubbed. She really needs a great home. I will be getting her her first shot, worming her, getting her flea-free, and grooming her. I'm hoping someone can get her tomorrow... There will be a firm rehoming fee of $100, and that's to help detour dog fighters, resellers, etc. Please do not ask me to lower it. It will go towards getting my other rescues fixed, not for my own personal gain.
I do want a good home for her. I believe she would be okay with calm, respectful children, especially since she's just a pup. She just needs an understanding family. She's not very hyper, pretty laid back. Loves to lay on your feet, seems like a snuggler. Please text anytime day or night with any questions. Thanks, and god bless.
