Sheppie Brown Eyes's Story...

Sheppie was found in a ditch one morning on the way to work.... Left for dead, at 33 lbs. she is heartworm positive and skinny.  These pictures below were taken the day she was found.  It is obvious this dog was left outside to fend for herself.  She tried to eat anything she could find, she would eat newspaper, the plastic food bowl., anything she could.

Sheppie has been in a foster home for three weeks,  she is very loyal and devoted.  It is now that we have to find a new foster home for her to continue her rehabilitation.  She has put on weight, however, it is unlikely she will ever be a normal size.

In a few weeks, when more weight is put on her, we will spay and look into treating her heartworm.... She is on prevenative now..

Her skin is also improving.

PLEASE keep in mind, she has been through a lot in her short life and her road to recovery is going to be a long one.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sheppie Brown Eyes, a Merrillville 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 Merrillville, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Merrillville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Merrillville 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 Merrillville 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 Merrillville paves the way for another one to be saved.
