Remembering Nana
Rest in Peace

Female German Shepherd Dog /Retriever mix about 6-9 years old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs.

Nana came to us weighing 7 lbs more pre surgery - if you look below, you can see the tumors weighing her down. Someone allowed her to get like this with no medical care - clearly a mother over & over (you should see her take care of the foster pups in her temporary home), she was tossed out like garbage.

We have nursed her through a slight case of pneumonia and had the largest of the tumors removed. Thankfully, Nana is in robust health, no cancer but will require a couple more surgeries to get back her girlish figure.

Nana looks morose in her photos but she is anything but. She is truly a gentle soul with people and good with other dogs but like any good mom, she doesn't take much lip from anyone. She lives relatively harmonioulsy in a house filled with other dogs, some alpha, some not, most are older but a handful of pups sprinkled in. She has taken to the "dog" couch, relaxing with her buddy Deuce in quiet harmony.

Nana would be a wonderful addition to a family with smaller kids - she is quiet, calm and loves a good long head scratch.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
