Introducing Franklin D S'more

"I once heard someone say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Well, life sure gave me a lemon. Back around Thanksgiving time, my owner had to go into the hospital, and they told me that he wasn't coming back. The neighbors were supposed to take care of me while things got figured out, but they left, too. All I remember is going days and days without food, water, and love. The next thing I knew, I was at a shelter in the Veterinary Clinic. From the looks on everyone's faces, I was not looking too good. I'm super skinny, and have an abscess on the side of my face that isn't too pretty. When I lay down, it feels funny, and I can't get bony hips make it really hard to get cozy. The veterinary clinic has taken good care of me, but I need so much extra veterinary care, that the awesome people at BDBH decided to take my case. I'm waiting for some bloodwork to come back to see exactly what medicine I need. For now, I'm just trying to get my appetite back! I'm not really into the whole dog food thing (I'm going to milk this while I can!), but the chicken someone fed me sure did hit the spot! I have gained a pound since I've been eating...not much but it's a start!! I'm a really handsome boy, and I'm 5 years old, so if I can just get better, I'll have my whole life ahead of me!! For now, I have a nice soft bed to sleep on, and lots of people who care about me, so hopefully my "lemonade" is in the making!! If you can find it in your heart I could use some donations to help with my care, plus some positive thoughts and prayers"


Hey everyone. I am slowly but surely getting healthier, thankyou to all who have helped by donating to my care. I have gained weight and my 2nd set of bloodwork shows that my body is recovering from it's starvation. You can probably see I do still have the abcess on my face but it is also getting better now that I have the strength to fight the infection along with antibiotics. I still have a long road to recovery but am so deserving of this chance at a new life.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Franklin D S'more, a Rochester/Buffalo German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Rochester/Buffalo, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Rochester/Buffalo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rochester/Buffalo 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 Rochester/Buffalo 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 German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rochester/Buffalo paves the way for another one to be saved.
