Update 2/19/14: Per Petharbor link, Sasha has been adopted!
On Feb. 11, a stunning, young German shepherd was taken in at the New York Animal Care and Control facility in Manhattan.
The two-year-old dog has been dubbed "Sasha," and she is desperately in need of an adopter or rescue agency to come to her aid.
Sasha has been described as "needy," and "smart."
This gorgeous girl is behaving like a typical German shepherd who is in uncomfortable in her surroundings - she is tense, barks at the unknown and she is sensitive.
Sasha needs to be out of this environment and in the care of someone who is familiar with German shepherds.
Sasha is in need of a shepherd savvy guardian who can provide her with training and structure and allow her to be the amazing dog that she is meant to be.
A volunteer stated:
She leans now on me then lays on my lap, half on her back for chest rubs…Sasha is quite needy even that she might appear a bit obnoxious to the people she is barking at. I must say that I never heard a growl or saw any of Sasha's teeth…needles to say that I love Sasha, her name, her breed and basically just because she is the way she is and a project that could bloom into a wonderful forever best friend.
Please take a moment to network Sasha's information, before her nervousness becomes the reason for her demise.
