I am from Minnesota and have recently rescued my first GSD, Tango. He is around 2 years old and originally from Georgia. He was a stray and very thin. After taking him to the vet, I also learned his is full of buckshot
He has come a long way and is learning his manners. He loves his sister, a black lab X, and his brothers, a chihuahua x, and a tabby cat.
He is spoiled rotten and is loving life. I am very grateful he has learned how to retrieve so I can finally tire him out in the back yard!
I have wanted a German Shepherd for many years now and happy I finally had the opportunity to rescue one and cannot wait to rescue another when the time is right.
He looks like a happy, grateful boy all snuggled up with you and the rest of the pack. I've always thought that rescues know that you have saved them--at least the adult dogs and the one's subjected to prolonged/severe adverse conditions. You know, like buck shot-OUCH! Good for you and enjoy your new family member.
