Jada
Young girl phoned, her life in a shambles and unable to keep her 103 lb purebred German Shepherd, crying, begged for our Sanctuary to please, please, please take in her little girl, Jada.

Her first call was about another dog she said she couldn't keep and she was going to be homeless. But same call she told me her mom had ten puppies and a 9 month old one, and the mom and dad, and grandparents to puppies, nothing made sense. Then she calls me and says she found the other dog a home, she has a place to live but she cant keep her dog, the nine month old. The dog is papered too.
