Hello! Ember is my name and beauty is my game! I'm a 5-year-old spayed female purebred German Shepherd. I weigh about 70 pounds. In addition to being spayed, I'm fully vaccinated and microchipped. That means I'm move-in ready!

I'm super sweet and friendly, without a mean bone in my body. I get along well with everyone I meet - human and canines alike! I'm always smiling and my zest for life can't be matched. I get really excited to go on walks, and I even try to lead the way! Nothing a little leash training can't resolve! I'm an active gal who would enjoy hikes, trips to the dog beach, parks and just going anywhere you go.

I first arrived to the South LA pound at the end of May. I was turned in as a stray. I didn't have a microchip or a collar, so it isn't known whether I had an owner previously. Unfortunately, it's difficult to find out the history of stray dogs. The vet there examined me and noted that I had some weakness in my hind legs, but they didn't treat me for anything. I just waited and waited in my cage, day in and day out, hoping someone would come and adopt me.

After about a week, my luck changed when some friendly folks from CageFree saw me! They decided right then and there that I deserved a safe and loving home to call my own. So they pulled me out of the shelter and brought me to their private veterinarian for an evaluation. It was determined that I have arthritis in my hips, which causes me to be a little wobbly on my feet, but doesn't require surgery at this time. I'm on medication to manage it. The vet also noticed that I was limping on my right elbow and an x-ray showed an unfused bone in the joint. Surgery was done to remove the loose bone fragment and now I'm on the mend.

So now that I've been treated by the vet, I'm ready to find my perfect forever home! Are you the one for me? If you'd like to meet me and find out, please hurry and contact CageFree. I'll be waiting patiently!

About CageFree K9 Rescue Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

CageFree K9 Rescue Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit no-kill all-breed dog rescue group located in Los Angeles. We're dedicated to finding great homes for great dogs. The majority of our rescues come from the many Los Angeles animal shelters and are screened for temperament and sociability. We focus on pulling "red-listed" dogs before they are euthanized by high-kill local shelters. We ensure that each and every dog in our care receives the medical attention and emotional support they need until they are placed with their new forever family! All of our dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered prior to placement.
