ADOPTED ON 07-15-17 – Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year.
The south is full of angels that help so many dogs get to a safe place. Spirit’s rescue story began that way, she was found by Angel#1 that could not keep this puppy she found; she had two grown dogs, three children and a warm heart. She left the puppy in a box on the doorstep of a rescuer that could not turn this sweet baby away either, even if she had 20 dogs at her home – she is our partner and Spirit is in good hands. Angel #1 called our partner and told her that she left the puppy and ask her if she would be able to take her and find a good home. Spirit was officially rescued.
Spirit is an amazing loving dog. She gives the warmest hugs when she is held and wraps her head around her foster mom’s neck-her foster mom speaks with warmth when she talks about her. She plays and wrestles with all the dogs in the foster home, still too young to be left with small children, and watches the cats with a lot of curiosity but doesn’t attempt to get close, she respects them. She has no food issues, does fine in a crate, and is too young to be on a leash. She checks out all loud noises but she is just cautious dog… not skittish, and needs to have bones to chew on daily.
After a flea bath and worms that must have filled this baby’s belly, Spirit is a healthy, happy, normal puppy. She does have a very small umbilical hernia on the belly but it poses no problem at all and can be easily be fixed if necessary at the time of her spaying when she is old enough.
True to the German Shepherd breed, she is watchful of all of her surroundings, very playful, loveable, and an adorable fuzzy cuddle bug, loves to hug her humans. She will be ready to come north after her third DHLPP shot, she has lots of puppy playful energy and with require her new family to be a part of their time and attention. It is hard to tell at this age about much more about her, however, her paws are HUGE and we think she will be a large adult dog.
Spirit watches over her foster home with the kindness of an angel, few dogs naturally possess the ability to fit in anywhere. Spirit not only fits in, she excels in all situations, other dogs, kids and humans. If you have an urge to have an instant best friend that is always glad to see you and easily maintained, you really should give this wonderful girl a look. We are looking for a family that she can really be a member of with lots of activities that focus around her or include her so that she be able to then develop to be an awesome social companion family dog with a big heart.
If you have what it takes to be her owner where she can live the rest of her life and want to be the happy ending that we promised her, fill out an application right away.
