I realized people don't know these dogs that have meant so much to so many people on this board. So I wanted to get some of the classic stories together.

And whew! I went through the pages of rescue stories and tried to pick a variety, but also realize that some of the best ones are ones that make it seem like rescue dogs all come in with BIG problems - and they don't. Some of the most memorable ones do though.

I am sorry if I missed any - if there are ones listed on the board that impacted you, feel free to add them.

Jean, whatever happened to Apollo from the last link you listed?
That's the only one I've had time to read through.

I saw the great new pics on Tessa's thread! She's a pretty girl. Black GSDs are my favorite (don't tell).

I will see if we can get an Apollo update. Last I heard he was still furry!

I added the Leetle Friends :wub: to the list and then Mary Ann did a post on a must see thread with her Cheyenne HW+, old, bad lungs, mammary tumor and now getting ready for a Mardi Gras float for the weekend! http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum/follow-up/122326-douglasville-ga-senior-f-wgsd-6248b-cheyenne.html

Anytime someone gives me a new one, I will add it to the top post too. :)

Great idea Jean. If we give you the name are you the one that goes blind trying to find it??? lol....I always liked the story of Abby, the dog from New England GSR that was adopted and it didn't work out so she had to go back to the rescue but by then the foster home had taken on another do so she had to go to boarding (which she hated)......

Who was the feral GSD in FL that was living on a construction site and had to be caught in a trap?

Jean:

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?
