|GSDLADY_2||He was a wonderful dog...as i mentioned on other forums i lost his mate suddenly two days ago. Trying to rescue a shepherd from the rescue groups is extremely difficult; they make it almost next to impossible; i understand that, I do...but this is how I ended up with Vin Vin....the rescue groups made it so hard, I just walked into a shelter and there he was. The beatings, the starving and ill treatment did not erase his loving nature; he flourished each and every day and not one minute went by where he did not show his gratitude by being so loving. I miss him terribly and am so fearful that I will never be able to find one like him.|

I clicked on the picture and laughed then I read your post and cried. I clicked on the picture again and then laughed & cried. I am so sorry for your loss but so very happy for the 12 years you had together. I wish every single person who is leary about rescuing a dog could see that picture and read your words.
"how can a dog that was so beaten down and ill treated allow someone to do this?"
I have been mesmorized by that same question since we brought Barty home. They are amazing creatures.

My Rescue Dog
This is Vin Vin...the GSD that we rescued from Newark, NJ....he had been beaten, starved, and had the mange when we rescued him. He was not vetted by GSD rescue...
he came out of that cage and licked both me and my 14 yr old son as if to say take me, take me....we did...and we had 12 wonderful years with this beautiful dog...
how can a dog that was so beaten down and ill treated allow someone to do this?
this picture says it all...
