Nora is a female German shepherd who is estimated to be under 2 years old. She, along with 40 other German shepherds, were found living in horrific conditions in a home in Memphis, TN. Rescuers brought them to safety and 7 of the shepherds came to us at Char-Wills German Shepherd Rescue. We have no history on these dogs, but they are settling in at our rescue kennel and their personalities are shining through. They are almost ready to find their forever homes. Meet & Greets are available now, and the dogs can go home with their new families after they are spayed & neutered. Each dog will need a family with patience and understanding, as they acclimate to home life. It takes some dogs a long time to realize that they are now safe and their next meal is guaranteed. They must not be expected to acclimate immediately - the process often takes at least a few months.
Nora is a complete sweetheart. She can be shy with new people at first, but warms up quickly. She loves yummy treats, especially tiny bits of cheese or a doggie ice cream. This poor girl is quite thin, but will fill out beautifully with good nutrition. Nora has fun in the play yard romping around with the friendly male shepherds. She met our resident kitty Tony and did well with him, so she might be OK living in a home with cats. Nora has had it rough the past year or two. But we promised her that the rest of her years would be filled with security, dishes filled with food & water, and the love of a family.
Unfortunately, Nora has tested positive for heartworms and will require treatment to get rid of them. Treatment will be paid for by Char-Wills when done at our vet's office in Hometown, PA. Nora is seeking a Foster or Foster-to-Adopt home within 1 hour of Hometown, PA as her treatments will require 3 separate visits to the veterinarian's office.
Nora has been micro-chipped, de-wormed, and vaccinated. She is on Flea/Tick/HW prevention, and will be spayed prior to adoption.
