Tonight on the news, here in Denver, there was a story about a man who saw an ad on craig's list. The gsd was very thin and the man wanted to buy her to rescue her. He meet the guy at a gas station and paid forty dollars for her. He took the 2 yr old female to the vet and found out she was stolen three weeks ago, out of the owners back yard. They had left her out while they were gone. Just shows, that unless you have a very secure back yard, even a older dog can be taken. Glad this one had a happy ending. The guy in this story runs a rescue.
