Blanketback I'm so happy for Nala - she must be the happiest girl in the world right now. Thanks so much for saving her and showing her what love is. You all look so wonderful together!

The male on male aggression got to the point it was obvious the best interest of everyone was to rehome Smoke. (I knew this would probably be an issue from day one) He went to a responsible family that loves him to pieces. I talk with them on a regular basis. He's spoiled rotten

She probably liked it because it felt great.

Good going. You are her Thanksgiving angel, that's for sure.
Thanks I will do anything I can for GSDs... it's like my crazy hobby I can't fix everything, but do whatever I can. I truely love them, and have a calling to watch ads... If I can't take em, I can network.

So glad she is loved and cared for now. I guess this is proof that genetics determine a lot of the temperament. Look what she went through and she is still a pretty stable dog.
ITA. She is very stable. No resource guarding with the bone, but made it clear she didn't want anyone to touch it.. she has growled at Axel for getting near her treats though. Can't blame her. She politely says MINE. No problem with people coming near.

How did you keep from beating the tar out of the owner?
I just wanted to get her outta there, that was that. Played nice and left. I took her and Axel both to a dog wash a couple days after we got home. (they clean everything for 8 bucks!) The tub was covered in mud and dirt.. she cleaned up very nicely, and was a very nice lady getting her bath, seemed to like it. (Axel HATES baths.. ) I did them both in tubs right across from one another at the same time... it was a bonding experience for sure! I was feeling like a super hero that I pulled that off, ROFL!

llombardo I can't even imagine how she must feel being able to sleep inside on a couch with family.

I have been waiting for an update! She looks great! Also looks much more slender than in the pic.

Can you tell us how it went on the drive, how she reacted to being in the house? The pic of her snoozing in comfort is priceless.
She looks so happy, and thank you and bless you for getting her out of there.
I kinda got banned for running my mouth... LOL! I had a pickup with a camper shell, crates in the back. We still had 2 days of bmx racing to do after we picked her up, we stayed at a hotel, she has very nice manners for the most part, just a little rough when happy ... she rode calmly. She jumped right up into the crate and layed down. It was a little touchy with her and Axel arguing when I let them out together, so we rotated. They are getting along fine now. She maybe has a few extra pounds on her, it was just a bad pic. She was being fed, for sure. Inside has gone well, she wants to "Go" outside = housebroken. The only really wierd thing, I have a consoles TV... 1st time I left her loose inside with Axel, I came home and everything was knocked off. I set a camera on it...she jumps on top of it to see out the window... LOL! She is happy and thankful for sure. She did get loose here once... totally ignored me with treats calling her but didn't leave... just ran around like a maniac and came back inside.
The funniest thing was the bone.. I bought knuckle bones. Gave her one in the crate when I went to work. She was chewing on it when I got home 4 hours later.. didn't think much of it. Let her out to potty. She never put it down. She peed, pooped, never putting down the bone. I think she hadn't had a treat like that in a while. 2 more hours in the house with it, she came over and started licking me and pouncing all over me She is loved, and vice versa
