Leila is just the sweetest, most loving little girl!  She smothers your face with kisses and loves to be held in your lap for petting .  She deserves a life full of love and hugs, dog bones and long walks! 

During her initial veterinary examination,  it was discovered that this tiny pup everyone thought was about 12 weeks old was really about 5 or possibly even 6 months old and had a stage 5 heart murmur!  Further examinations by veterinary cardiologists revealed a severe congenital heart defect.  Leila was diagnosed with Valvular Pulmonic Stenosis  and had surgery - a procedure called a "Balloon Valvuloplasty" to correct this disorder, thanks to the generosity of ASR supporters with  a surgery fee of slightly more than $3000. Unfortunately, although the surgery was a success, in a short period of time the tissue had regrown and no there are no further surgical or medical options.

Leila receives a daily medicine called a beta blocker and has a periodic check up from a cardiologist inducing an echocardiogram to check for any changes in her heart.

We will do what it takes to help this girl to live as normal a life as possible.  Leila is in her foster home and loving it! She loves her big, big German Shepherd foster brother and foster sister - and enjoys trying to get the upper hand - always from both!  Her foster mom reports that aside from tiring easily, Leila is a typical playful and loving puppy - with a cute personality...and she is waiting for her forever home.

If you would like to donate to help cover the cost of Leila's semi-annual cardiologist visits and echocardiogram (about $650), please use link below

About All Shepherd Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of German Shepherd lovers who help homeless German Shepherds that are in dire straits and need rescue.

We rescue dogs from kill shelters or other situations where the dogs' life is in danger. We fully vet our dogs and our wonderful fosters care for our dogs until their "forever home" is found!

We are a dating service for dogs, helping potential adopters find the perfect match for their families. We will work with you tirelessly until we find the perfect fit for your family!

We make a lifetime commitment to every dog and every adopter and we are there to answer questions and help with the transition to your home.

Why do we do it? We LOVE dogs , especially German Shepherds, and it breaks our hearts that so many adoptable GSD's never make it out of shelters.

We are an all volunteer group and are always looking for new volunteers to help us in our mission to save dogs!

FOSTERS, we need YOU!!!!

We need fosters to provide a safe haven while a dog is waiting for his/her forever home! If you think you cannot foster because you couldn't let your foster dog leave, talk to us!! While many of us have adopted one or more of our fosters ( we call it Failing Fostering 101 !!!) we can tell you how wonderful it is to see your foster become a beloved addition to a new family.............and opens up a space to save another dog on death row!

If you have any questions at all about fostering please give us a shout and we are happy to answer all questions.

If you cannot foster, we always need volunteers to help host events, do fundraising and PR .

And , of course, we always need donations to pay the vets who keep our dogs healthy and the trainers who help us with doggie manners!

Donations are always welcome and very much appreciated!
