Tell us a rescue dog tale….

I rescued an GSD who was about 8/9 years old, he was left tied up outside a pound, he was in very poor health and was filthy. He was with me for 16 months before he had a stroke and I had to let him go. He was an amazing boy and he was happy with me for his twilight years. I would take on another golden oldie in a heartbeat
