OAK HILL WV-mom/pup abandoned in rural area

A pb GSD and her pup were dropped in a rural area about a month ago and the people living out there have been feeding them. The lady who contacted me about them is trying to keep from taking them to the shelter, but she's afraid mom will go back into heat.

She's a sweet dog, smallish (50 LBS) and underweight. Very social, nice temperment and laid back. SHe enjoys playing retrieve with a stick. Will chase cats (intentions unknown) and unknown if she's used to small children. Gets along well with the dogs in the area, shows NO resource guarding around food bowl. Probably around 4 yo.

The pup looks very GSD.Black with white on paws, chest and tip of tail... the 'ususal' places gsds generally get white if they get it.. but I'm guessing he's probably mixed?? .She's around 6mos, about 30 pounds. It is a female.

Both these dogs are very friendly and super super sweet. I gave both parvo/combo vaccinations yesterday. Please pm me or email me at
RYDN1@suddenlink.net if anyone is interested and can help provide a home for these two sweet dogs. They are very much in danger of being run over, esp the pup as they wander on the road... Pup is getting more confident and wanders around by itself at times.

I keep going back and forth...I'd love to take in the puppy but couldn't chance it if it wasn't cat and other dog friendly...Plus I'm all the way in CT and wouldn't have anyway to get the puppy. Just to confirm the puppy is a female?

yes, pup is a girl. I did email you . . . Yup, my concerns are with them running the road, esp pup. It's a rural area but has still traffic and puppies have no sence!

Waiting to hear on possible placement for both locally (in separate homes) but nothing definate at this time.

Pup is all puppy.... silly and cute.

I am from Beckley WV, about 12 miles from Oak Hill. I may be interested in adopting the pup if she becomes available. My female GSD, Maddie is terminally ill, with weeks(??) to live.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away.

Any update on these two dogs? I know a few of us were waiting to see if they were still avail or if they went to good homes? Still interested in the puppy if she still hasn't found a home.
