This sweet mama was abandoned in the port of Stockton, miles from any neighborhood or family. No more than two years old she found herself in a heavily industrial area away from any food or drinking water. She survived and when she became pregnant she found a concrete drain pipe about 18 inches wide that only she could fit into. Unfortunately, this tunnel ran between railroad tracks and under the main road that is heavily congested with semi trucks all week. One of these truck drivers alerted someone that could rescue them and after many trips and attempts, momma and her 11 healthy puppies were safe and on their way to better lives. Since then they have received the royal treatment… excessive pampering and attention, only the best food and accommodations and all the toys they could ever want to play with! But these puppies are growing up fast, and they need to find a forever home that will love them as well as they have been loved by their momma and their rescuers. Some of the puppies look to be very similar to true German shepherd pups and some have a little more flair. They all have wonderful personalities and love to cuddle, they eat well, do not have fleas or worms, and a very strong and healthy. Lady (momma) is incredibly smart and has acclimated well to her new life. She gets along well with other dogs and even cats. She is careful around small children and tho she is a little guarded and nervous around new people she makes friends very quickly, even faster if there are treats to offered! She likes to cuddle in bed with you at night before settling on her own bed on the floor. She has not shown any signs of aggression towards people, animals, around food or with any sort of poking or prodding. She naturally stays right next to you, and is learning basic commands as quickly as I can teach them. She has no health problems except for being incredibly thin right now. This mama deserves someone that will love, cherish her and give her all of the attention she needs. With a little training she could be a wonderful addition to a family with little ones or a service dog.

Mama and her puppies will be ready for their new homes after July 24 when the puppies will be about eight weeks old.
