There was a sable bitch with eight puppies that went to a southern states GSD rescue from a shelter in North Carolina as I recall. The foster mom ended up calling her Nadia after the human "octomom". The shelter photo of her and the newborn puppies on the concrete floor still haunts me. Can you find that thread?
