Duchess and her Pups

 

Those of us who have worked in the rescue field for a number of years thought we had heard everything, but this story rates right up there among the most disturbing...

German Shepherd Rescue received an urgent call from a family that needed to get not one but TWO litters of puppies and their nursing mothers off their property within 48 hours or face eviction from the landlord!

The story gets worse...

It seems that the puppies were the result of an unsupervised 15-year-old boy's boredom.  Although the father had kept his two unaltered female shepherds separated from his unaltered male shepherd, this irresponsible teenager decided to put them together because he wanted to "watch them do it".  (The father can not explain why his dogs were not altered in the first place.)

The family had permission to have ONE dog, not EIGHTEEN at their rented property, so when the landlord found out, she insisted that the puppies go immediately.  German Shepherd Rescue SCRAMBLED to scrape up foster homes and get to the mothers and pups in time.  As if things weren't stressful enough, the family had no means of transporting the mothers and puppies to us, so we had to make TWO four-hour-round-trip drives to pick the dogs up!  The man had the nerve to ask for one of the mothers' collar back.

Duchess is an 18 month old reluctant mother who is struggling to care for her four puppies.  She is black and tan and will be very striking when her coat is restored to its "pre-pregnancy" glory and when her mammary glands shrink. Duchess will be looking for a home approximately September 1st when her puppies are weaned.  Please don't overlook this deserving mother who was forced to participate in this "experiment" by an uncaring teenager!

Duchess has four female puppies that will be ready for adoption approximately August 31, after they have had their shots and been spayed.  They are purebred shepherds but do not have AKC papers.  We will be accepting applications on them in the meantime.
