Mama is such a sweet girl and we know that it takes a special type of person/family to give their heart fully, only to get back a shorter amount of time with a senior dog but we have high hopes of placing this girl in a loving home where she can get the attention she deserves for the last several years of her life...speaking of that issue here is some helpful info.
The old rule-of-thumb that one dog year equals seven years of a human life is not totally accurate. The ratio is higher with youth and decreases a bit as the dog ages. Depending on the breed, and BTW a GSD has a life span on average of 11 years, a dog of six has aged about as much as a 45-year-old human. And at 10 years old, they are like a human at 65...so actually Trish is like a 58 year old and we all know life starts at 50!
