Story
I have 2 pure bred shepherds, bother and sister 5 years old. They have never been apart and I have had them since they were 7 weeks old. They are very good natured and people friendly once they get to meet you. My husband got them for me for my retirement, as I had plenty of to time to share with them. My husband has passed and I am going to relocate. I have tried adoption with family and friends, but to no avail. Any questions reach out. I just want them to have a good home. If they can not stay together, I understand. Thank you. Peggy Krauter (xxx) xxx-xxxx

Albert is a 43 lb neutered male that is a mix. Not sure what breeds. He is extremely loving! Is crate trained (likes the door open) and housetrained. Loves to play with running after balls and playing with other dogs! In foster before with small dogs and large dogs! We have to cat test him yet! Was about to be euthanized in Texas at a kill shelter because of lack of space, not behavior! He is an awesome dog! So we pulled him and had him transported here after being neutered! ##1983025##
