History: We rescued Clyde from an extremely neglectful and sad situation. Clyde has suffered severe nerve damage which left rear leg dragging for months, an amputation was needed as soon as he arrived. He was thin scared and uncertain about his new life here but now that he has received MUCH needed medical attention, food and some reassurance life and other dogs can be safe he is settling here.
We are still getting to know the new and improved Clyde, we unfortunately have no idea how Clyde suffered his nerve damage, as a result his back end is not as strong as his front end. He is a trooper and is does the best he can on 3 legs. He has handle his disability like a champ.
Clyde is now getting the nutrition he needs, his coat is looking better, gaining weight, and loves human attention. He is smart dog, follows directions well, he will be a very loyal protective k9 companion. Clyde definitely exhibits the traits of the true German Shepherd spirit. We feel Clyde would do best in a quiet home with easy access to the outside due to his neuro issues, he would do great with a smaller dog or no dogs. If you have interest in learning more about Clyde, we can explain more about him in depth.
