"Meet Astrid: She has had a rough start at life. She has been chained outside her whole life until AC picked her up. She is about 3yrs old, 57lbs Black German Shepherd with a tint of red when the sun hits it. She is good with dogs when properly introduced, as she hasn't had the best history with them (got a chunk missing from both ears and small white hairs on her face and paws that were once scares from a dog). She is currently being potty trained (which she's learning really fast) and will be starting with kennel training soon. She will not be good with cats or small dogs as she has a high prey drive. She LOVES people tho and is good with kids as well. She is still skinny and needs to gain at least another 10lbs. She is eager to learn and please her person. Astrid is utd on shots, flea/tick prevention, spayed, and microchipped."

or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for
a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of
You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home.
In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog breeders who
help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten
adopted in Manhattan paves the way for another one to be saved.
