Vanessa's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Vanessa's Story...
My name is Vanessa and I am a fourmonth old, German Shepherd and Labrador mix.

My mom’s parents did not spay her and she ended up having me along with eight other siblings in the litter. A friend helped to place all of my eight siblings, but no one wanted me because I was born with a lame limb and was considered “less than perfect.”

The vet said that I was born with radial paralysis in my front left limb and that amputation was going to be the best option for me.

There was really no chance of me getting adopted if I’d been taken to the shelter, the odds were not in my favor. No one really wants a dog or would be willing to love a dog that will need costly orthopedic surgery.

No one, except for Ken-Mar Rescue.

Ken-Mar Rescue raised the funds to cover the expenses for my leg surgery.

I don’t really mind being a tripod. I hadn’t been using my fourth limb anyway and had already gotten accustomed to getting around on three. I run the same, walk the same and generally am the same dog. A missing limb does not a “defective” pet make!

If Ken-Mar Rescue had not come to save me and love me and reassure me that I am a complete dog despite my “uniqueness,” I would have been a goner for sure.

I am not the “betting” type, but I’ll wager that my odds are pretty good at being able to find a loving “fur-ever” home that will appreciate me for who I am not for what I don’t have.

Will you help me win the jackpot by adopting me?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Vanessa, a Los Angeles Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog puppy from a breeder in Los Angeles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Los Angeles already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Los Angeles breeder, 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 savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
