I’m on the fence about taking my 11 mo. old GSD to the local animal shelter today. It is a better than average shelter, very clean & by the book. Before any of the judgmental, holier than thou old biddies on this site start in, just remember that you don’t know anything about my situation, and this does hurt. I have to let the dog go within at least a month. What I’m asking is, does anyone have a better idea than the shelter with this short time frame?
