Hello, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Champ.  I don't know how to tell my rescue friends what my real name was but they call me Champ.  You see, I was abandoned in very bad health and I was hiding out for a couple weeks before I let someone catch me.  I was very sick and scared.  Animal control picked me up and took me to the shelter where some very nice people made friends with me and took care of me.  A few days later I was allowed to go with the great folks at this rescue.  I weighed over 100 lbs the first time I saw the vet but I was starving and technically underweight.  My heart didn't work right and I had those nasty heartworms in me.  The nice doctors drew 40 lbs of fluid off my abdomen.  I started feeling better and started eating better.  I went for short walks every day and started getting my strength back.  I am now well enough to be considered for adoption and my heart sounds normal (whatever that means).

I love to eat and I love long walks.  I tend to get in trouble for trying to chase the cat or the little dog.  I am crate trained but I don't want to be in my crate a lot, especially when the pesky little dog is teasing me.

If you have a comfortable dog bed, good food and like to walk, I am the dog for you.  No cats or small pesky dogs allowed in my clubhouse.  I like to ride in the car and I am a "people person" , er dog.

I might need to continue taking medicine for my heart, but otherwise all I need is food (I love to eat), lots and lots of love, long walks, a warm place to sleep and regular visits to the vet to make sure I'm ok.

About Helping Shepherds of Every Color

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of individuals who love the German Shepherd. We take in unwanted dogs/puppies and get them healthy and find them loving homes. We do not discriminate against White German Shepherds or any other color GSD. Just because it cannot be shown in a dog show doesn't mean it is not a GSD in need of help. If you wonder why such a magnificent dog would need a rescue we encourage you to do a breed search on any of the pet rescue sites and see how many GSDs turn up in shelters and rescues.
