Los Angeles County, CA - A classic black and tan beauty is currently in need of rescue at the Baldwin Park Animal shelter.
Some will ask, how can another German shepherd be profiled when the last "at risk" dog has not yet found a home.
And I will respond, because this girl needs a chance as well.
Again, this dog is listed without a name - only a number A4405692.
Nothing to let us know her personality or give us a glimpse of her personality or a suggestion of what her life was in the past.
At 7 years of age, she is a bit gray around the muzzle, but she still holds her head high with dignity, despite her less than dignified surroundings.
Some will consider seven years old to be a senior.
A better description would be mature and settled.
Still the age of a dog who enjoys going for a stroll or chasing after a ball, but content to lay by her person while they read a book or sit at their computer.
Certainly, if we could see this dog in motion, we would see her full tail fanned out beautifully behind her as she moves with the smooth grace that shepherds are known to possess.
Unfortunately, this regal dog has no description - no way for us to know if she is good with other dogs or if she prefers the company of people more.
This much is known - she needs to find her way out of this facility before it is too late.
At some point she gave her loyal heart to a person - today she sits here alone, with no person by her side to offer her comfort.

Please take a moment to share her story and give her the chance to be able to enjoy her golden years.
