The lady that gave us Gypsy got her from a shelter. What a smart, beautiful, and loving dog she is too.
Thank you God for our Gypsy! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/25_angel.gif[/img]

Here's my shelter baby, Sable. She came from the Humane Society of the Black Hills here in SD. She's come a long way from the sad girl I found standing in her urine. I can't walk thru there without bawling. I wouldn't trade her for anything in the world, and believe me I get offers! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/03_wink.gif[/img]


This is Sable and my hubby.

My Gaia - being hugged by Daddy, Maedchen rescued her from a shelter just before she was to be PTS, and Carolina (GSDBESTK9) arranged her transport north for me!


DH has said no more dogs for now, but has let me adopt two kitties in the past year & half;
Caroline (ruling the roost from my son's bed):


and Caleb, whose name is Hebrew for "Dog"!!!! (Little did DH know another "dog" had slipped in! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/03_wink.gif[/img] )
I've never had a velcro-cat before, maybe at heart he really is more canine ...

This is my Abby. Not a pure GSD, but GSD and yellow lab. I adopted her from the shelter. She was grown when I got her, but young. I had her for just over 16 years...January 1987 - February 2003.



This picture was taken while we were on vacation in Rhode Island.

Here's Jordy, my 'Ozark Shepherd' who made it out of LRAS by the skin of his teeth. He's almost 2 and a real momma's boy.



By the way, that's a beautiful bunch of throwaways we have here!!!

Great thread!

Here are my own "throwaways".

[image][/image]

Left to right:

Sally dog-my trophy puppy from W.Virginia. I fostered her mom and siblings who all had parvo, and then she became my foster failure;

Chewbacca-adopted from shelter in LI, NY-you can read his story in the "where are they now" forum;

Matsi-from a breeder prior to my rescuing days;

Red-adopted from Boston Animal Shelter where he sat for six months while his owner, a reverend here in Boston, was prosecuted for severe neglect. (Some of his other dogs didn't make it).
