JOSIE IS LOOKING FOR A FOSTER OR ADOPTION

Josie lived the first 2 years of her life on a chain. Her owner's sister 
convinced him to find her a new home and she went to live with a family 
that had 3 other dogs where she was great- she was house trained, loved 
to go for walks and did well with the other dogs but her previous life 
had taught her some bad habits. Because she was underfed and didn't 
receive much positive attention she still had problems with guarding her 
food/treats and toys. She was so afraid that she wouldn't get more food 
or get to have her toy back that she would get snappy with the other 
dogs that tried to take them or even just tried to play with her.

Josie 
is a wonderful dog with so much potential if someone could just give her 
the opportunity, be patient and constant and train her away from her 
guarding behaviors.

Josie has been at the shelter since October 4, 2016 
where she has received little interest due to her size and need for a 
specific, experienced home. Josie has began to shut down at the shelter. 
 

She no longer greets most people at the front of her kennel. Her eating 
habits have changed and she lays around mostly. She is fully vetted and 
her adoption fee is sponsored to an approved home or rescue.

We would 
love to find this girl a permanent home or foster home ASAP as we feel 
her quality of life is beginning to suffer.

About National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue Network - Arizona Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Anatolian related dogs, ASD mixed breads, house mates, litter mates and the like. While we love Anatolians and pride ourselves on helping this breed, we are truly dog lovers at We are The National Anatolia Shepherd Rescue Network (NASRN) and due to the current state of the US housing market, we are experiencing a large influx of dogs that are draining our funds. When Anatolian Shepherd (ASD’s) owners are forced out of their homes and into apartments or other living conditions, many times they can not take their ASD’s because the bread is so large.

So we find them abandoned, in high kill shelters and other animal rescues or agencies across the nation. We take allheart and we do not separate or deny other animals based on their breed. If an ASD has litter mates, or a partner from his current living conditions, we make it a priority to get the dogs adopted together or foster them as a pair.

Once we find them we then adopted them into our group as Fosters, or move them to a none-kill shelter while we look for adoptive homes.
We spay and neuter all our rescued dogs; we get them up to date on all needed medical treatments and any more serious needs. We also make sure they are all micro chipped before adoption to make sure if the dog ends up in a shelter the adoptive families can be located. We do all this while we look for permanent & proper housing for this wonderful large breed. It is not uncommon for our volunteers to help relocate dogs to their new fosters homes or permanent homes that are several states away from where we find them in need.

We are asking for your support to allow us to continue to save DOGS. Because we are a national group we can not set up contracted rates or kennels or set a program of discount medical treatment because we save dogs help all over the country. We place on average around 125 dogs a year but the number continues to climb and will keep climbing based on the current economic state of our country.
