What a handsome, happy boy I am! I am Valentino and life is so-o-o good! I am a beautiful young German Shepard mix, with some Rottweiler markings.
I had a family but they abandoned me when I was a young puppy. Thankfully, I survived on my own for many months, begging for food from local Good Samaritans. Unfortunately, my previous family had put a collar on me as a small puppy, and as I grew, it became tighter and tighter until it was very deeply embedded in my skin....they think the collar was on for almost a year A sweet young boy befriended me and he would leave me food; he told his mom how 'a nice little hungry dog had a 'hurt neck.' They tried to catch me to relieve my torment but I was too afraid. They called Stop Animal Cruelty who succeeded in winning over my trust and rushed me to the veterinarian for relief. They cut my collar off and did surgery to repair my deep wounds and horrible infection. Boy, did that ever feel better! I was free and someone was caring for me!
I am currently living with my foster mother where I'm getting LOTS of tender, loving care. My infection and wounds are healing very nicely and I can move my head all around and I don't hurt! Mom feeds me such good food, lot of treats and I have other foster-dog and cat friends. I LOVE my toys and can keep myself entertained all day playing with them. I love to run in her big fenced-in back yard, to jump in the air and, well, just enjoy my life!
Mom says I am very smart. I am completely crate and house-trained and love to go on car rides. I am learning to walk on a leash. I have to wear a harness as a collar is not good for my tender neck. I am just a happy happy boy - I love to be loved, I love to have my own person and I love all of the the other foster cats and dogs at Mom's house.
Life is good and I am so full of hope and gratitude. Mom says life will be even better when I get my fur-ever family, my very own people! I want to be someone's baby, sleep next to you and follow you all through the house - I want to belong to someone and be loved.....forever!
