Los Angeles, CA – Big, beautiful ears, a black snout and a gorgeous chocolate coat…all the makings of a traditional German shepherd.
Can Nina fool her rescuers?
Will the big ears do the trick? Or will they see through her facade?
Truth be known, Nina’s rescuers are well aware that she is an imposter – but they do not care.
Two German shepherd rescue organizations joined forces to save this tiny three month old puppy. When she caught the eye of one rescuer in Washington state, her heart was snared by the little pup.
When no one stepped forward to help save Nina’s life, that same rescuer’s heart began to break.
Nina’s kennelmate at the high kill shelter had distemper – Nina was sick with kennel cough – the combination meant sure death for the endearing puppy.
Through Facebook postings and frantic emailing, two rescues pulled off a miracle for Nina – one rescue in California joined forces with the Washington rescue and they made the arrangments necessary to save Nina’s life.
Today Nina is safe – she was pulled from the high kill shelter yesterday by the Westside German Shepherd Rescue and immediately transferred to Mar Vista Animal Medical Center where she will be treated and boarded until funds can be raised to bring her to her rescue (Washington German Shepherd Rescue) in Washington.
Nina isn’t a German shepherd, but that doesn’t mean that she wasn’t worth saving.
Both shepherd rescuers wanted to give this girl the gift of the rest of her life – something that every puppy should enjoy.
If you would like to help these organizations with Nina’s medical and boarding costs, you can call Mar Vista Animal Medical directly at (310) 391-6741. Please let them know that funds are for Nina through the Westside GSD Rescue or the Washington German Shepherd Rescue.
