Please refer to the following identifications when inquiring about the German shepherd A469481 and her babies: A469482 through 488.

The dogs are at the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter, and further information reveals they have been confiscated from their owner and are not available immediately to be adopted. A volunteer writes this:

"I've called the shelter 3 times and she is there...it's up to the judge if she gets to be adopted or go back to her owner..Im still going up on the 2nd..they said she's had a lot of people interested, so most likely it will be a lottery as to who can adopt her."

The shepherd's anticipated release date has been listed as August 2.
