GSD wanted!

Default GSD wanted!

Can anyone help me? My 11-year-old companion dog was put down several
weeks ago due to untreatable disabilities. I am alone and desolate,
missing her so much.

I am ready for another dog and want to give a loving home to a dog who
needs me as much as I need him or her.

I have found several such dogs in rescue shelters but I am considerd
ineligible to adopt. Too old and too poor.

I am an 89 year old woman who has age related problems but even so,
according to my doctor, I am young for my years. I am self sufficient.

I live in a trailer, but I own the trailer and it is located inside a
six foot fence on the property of a long-time friend who loves animals
as I do.I chose trailer living over a house in town because I prefer the
quiet rural atmosphere.I'm sure that my dog felt the same way.

I survive on social security augmented by sales of personal possessions
plus an income as a writer. I write a weekly newspaper column.

I thoroughly agree on the "forever home" adoption requrement, but I am
looking for a dog whose life expentancy is similar to my own. According
to my doctor I have a future. I'm guessing three or four years and
perhaps more. No guarantee, but not even a 20-year-old can promise a
"forever home" for a dog.

I want a purebred GSD because I have owned and loved eight GSDs in my
lifetime. I know and understand this breed and I want that temperament,
those characteristics.

In my younger years I participated in Shutzhund clubs. I am familiar
with training. I founded an Adopt-A-Pet shelter in my home town. I am
truly knowledgeable about GSDs.

Papers mean nothing to me. I am not seeking a show dog or a working
dog. Just a loving companion.

Because my departed dog was a pedigreed dark colored long haired GSD I
now want a short haired black-and-tan, large or extra large, either sex.
I do not wish to compare my new dog to my departed one. This must be a
fresh start. A move forward.

I have hoped to acquire a retiring breeding bitch. I can offer unlimited
love and attention, good food, proper care to an adult dog who does not
require more activity than is available in a large yard.

He or she will sleep beside my bed at night and will hopefully follow me
in and out of the trailer, stay near me always.

I can't afford a $1500 dog, but can manage a few hundred and I have
ample funds for vet bills as necessary.

My home is in the Pacific Northwest. Any advice or suggestions will be
appreciated.

Try Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue, http://www.spdrdogs.org/. I have a
friend who's a small-dog breed rep there, and she's always overjoyed
when she can place a senior dog with a senior citizen.

THANKS!!!!!

As of yesterday I have my canine companion adopted from Seattle Purebred
Dog Rescue.

A wonderful GSD. An extra large black-and-tan nuetered male, seven years
young. Gentle and well mannered but alert, active and playful with the
true GSD temperament.

He seems to be happy with me and I am certainly happy to have him!
