This is the story of GSD Niko sent in by Lisa L. - another story of a rescued German Shepherd puppy sent in to us by a reader that I wanted to share with you.
Niko is a 4 month old GSD that was dumped off at a high kill shelter by a backyard breeder. We assume the breeder didn't want the expense of correcting Niko's umbilical hernia and broken leg.
We took Niko in and absolutely fell in love. She is sweet and playful and so happy to be with a family that loves her. Her best buddy is a 120 LB black lab named Bosley and she RULES him.
Niko is out of her cast and is healing fast and completely. We have started basic training and are amazed at how smart she is.
Always look at your local shelter and rescues when ready to adopt. You can get the most amazing dog in the world (the second most amazing dog as Niko is already ours :)..)
