Barely two days before Christmas, a purebred German Shepherd dog and his son, found themselves dumped at a shelter. The younger dog is now in foster but the adult Shepherd is still there waiting for a foster or new family. Here are the details from Angels Among Us Rescue:
Hi! I’m Atreyu! I am a purebred German Shepherd who is about 4 years old. I am just so confused…. My owners dropped me and my son (his mom was a Great Dane—his name is Falkor and also with Angels Among Us) off at the shelter. Why? I just don’t get it!! Is it because I am a bit shy? I really want to be loved but I am just scared to open up as everyone I have trusted has left me. I like to be pet and when you talk to me I listen really closely but if you move towards me too quickly it scares me. I think I might get hurt or something. My son, Falkor, is in his foster home now but I am stuck in boarding at the vet’s office waiting for a foster for me. At least I am warm and well fed here but I’d really like to be part of a family. I need someone who will love me and be patient with me so I can show my true self. I need a 6 foot fence too…I get scared and I don’t want to be able to get away. I hear it is very dangerous out on your own!!! I like other dogs but I am a bit reserved right now. Anyone have some space for me? I will be a good boy!!
