MEET FERDIE!! This gorgeous, black and tan German Shepherd male is 4-6 years old and has not had an easy life. Ferdie came to us in terrible condition from the Davidson County Animal Shelter. This boy had obviously been neglected. His nails were so long that they crossed each other and caused him serious issues when he walked. He was severely underweight to the point that his skin actually sagged and wrinkled. He was covered in yeast and scabs and had massive hair loss. The muscles in his back legs had atrophied from lack of use telling us that he had most likely been confined in a very small area for a long time. Fast forward a few months and Ferdie has gained weight and is filling out nicely. He gets regular exercise and is gaining muscle mass slowly. His nails are trimmed, his hair is mostly back and the yeast is cleared up. And boy, talk about personality. This guy is an absolute charmer. Ferdie is one happy boy that loves attention, is playful and energetic. You just cannot get enough of this guy. Ferdie is UTD, HW-, on HW preventative and will be neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. Adoption fee is $400 If you are interested in FERDIE or any of the other JLGSR dogs, please take a minute to fill out our online application at www.jettslegacy.com/adoption-application.html.
