Senior Dog Sasha Gets a Dream Retirement!

Sasha was found living in horrible conditions. Her senior human dad had lost the ability to care for himself, let alone his beloved companion. Sasha had nowhere to go and had no hope of surviving in a shelter. GSRNC came to her rescue!

See Rescue through the eyes of our volunteers.

This month we have something a little different. Ten year old Rory was writing a story for a contest in a major news magazine. She approached GSRNC for her subject matter and wrote a story about Regional Dog Manager Joye. The story won!! To read that story, click here. To learn more about Rory, click here.

Stay calm and have fun with your dog!

Here's a fun childhood GSD memory from a GSRNC volunteer!

When I was a child, my family lived in Mexico City. We rented a house in the country to escape the city on weekends. There, a GSD adopted us! He followed my brother home one day and chose to stay with us. His owners tried to keep him home but he always escaped and came to us. They finally agreed to let us have him on weekends. I don’t know his real name but my family called him Bogart. Every weekend when we drove by his house my dad honked the horn as we passed by. He’d come running out so excited to see us! He danced around our car all the way back to our place! He was our weekend dog and when we went back to the city, he went home. He was my first German Shepherd.

We'd love to share your memory too! Send your GSD story to us at:
