If we said the past year has been a struggle for everyone, it would be a huge understatement. Rescues have suffered with lack of donations and adoptions, and pets are being surrendered more than ever due to sickness, people losing their jobs or homes. Having to turn away dogs is heartbreaking and unfortunately we have been forced to operate on a very limited basis and will not be taking any new dogs. We are so grateful for the loyal and steady support of our Shepherds Hope family and friends. Without you we would not continue on the mission so dear to our hearts.
We wish our cherished adopters, supporters and friends a happy, healthy and safe summer, and brighter days ahead for everyone.
Tank is a super hunky boy looking for a new place to park his toys. It is with sadness we have to post him, but it’s probably for the best. Tank was found in summer of 2019 by good samaritans. He was tied up in a dog park in Brooklyn – emaciated, had a severe urinary infection and was extremely dehydrated.
One of our prior adopters had recently lost her dog and she very kindly opened her heart and home to Tank to give him a forever home. Unfortunately she suffered a serious back injury and had to leave her job. Tank is just too strong for her to manage comfortably, so she has made the heart-wrenching decision to find him a more suitable home.
When Tank was originally found, due to his poor condition, the vets originally thought he was 7 to 8 years old. Now that he’s recovered and healthy as a horse, we believe he’s not more than 4 years old. He is a large-boned boy and extremely strong. He does need some work on the leash. He is a super-energetic boy who would benefit from having a large fenced in yard to run in and play.
Tank seems to prefer women over men and would do best in a home with a single owner. We are seeking a home with no other pets, experienced German Shepherd owners and no children. Although he has been good with his owner’s grandchildren, he is a large dog who loves to show his love for those he cares about and he could quite possibly knock someone down.
Please fill out an application if you are interested in the very special boy.
