Hope has been adopted! 01-27-2017

Female German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Good with kids. Gets along with other dogs.

Hope is a very special 6 - 7 month old German Shepherd puppy. This beautiful girl had quite a rough start. Somehow when she was about 4 weeks old, her right femur was broken and her owners never bothered to take her to the vet to get it treated. As a result, not only did hope not learn to walk properly, the unset break started to heal poorly causing a condition was quadricep tie down, where the muscles in her thigh lock up and she can't bend her leg much. Hope came to us at 8 weeks, unable to walk properly and really needing our help. She has received surgery and therapy to help her develop her mobility and even though her right leg doesn't work "normally" it doesn't hold her back. She is a typical, active happy puppy in every way.

Hope is a very sweet girl and loves other dogs, big and small. She loves people and had a very good temperament. She is now ready to join a family who understands she has some limitations. Hope gets around very well and loves to run and play. She is a very athletic girl in addition to being a beauty. She is crate trained, house broken and walks well on a leash. She is very smart and learns things very easily. She loves to play with toys and is a joy to be around. This special girl will bring years of your to her new family.

The adoption fee for Hope is $500.

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.
