S&N There has never been a more faithful and loyal dog created than the German Shepard I grew up with police dogs ( wonder why this is their preferred dog of choice) I rightly believe it has everything to do with the aforementioned!!! I beg of someone in the OC area to pitch in and give this dog, not a foster home but a real forever home....he has more than many ways been deserving of such!!!

Noted. I had my best friend, Duncan, put to sleep last month for medical reasons that couldn't be fixed and am still crying. He would have been 15 in January 2013 and I had him since he was a puppy. German Shepherds are the most loyal dogs!

He needs medicated baths for skin disease, has a mass hanging from his chest that needs surgery, and needs dental work for broken teeth. It adds up. Poor old Zorro.

Thanks Michelle, I would take them all if I could. I have a Shepard. and he is the sweetest and most loving creature, and my best pal.
How can anyone hurt any animal, and dump them away like a piece of trash ? They give us unconditional love, and are more loyal, than humans can be.

Zorro has met his goal thanks to all our kind supporters.

Zorro asks that any additional contributions be sent to his gal pal,Poppy. She is a senior girl in very poor health who needs surgery to remove an infected eye.
