My friend has found herself in a situation. She has 2 German Shepards. Dad (Waylon) 4 years old and his son (Willie) 1.5 years old. Both are bonded but I think that they could be separated because they both crave one on one cuddles. Both are un neutered. Both are very friendly with other dogs, cats, and children. They will need a little training and guidance. The biggest issue is them jumping up and not knowing how big they are. She is in search of a rescue for them due to the following issues. Please keep in mind that this is weighing heavily on her heart as she and her family love these boys and considers them family. This decision wasn't made lightly. They have had t Waylon since 8 weeks and Willie since birth. After many crying sessions with the kids ( 10 & 16 ) they now understand as responsible pet owners it is up to them to make the tough decisions to ensure their safety and give them the best quality of life. 1. She was told by the electric company that she is not allowed to fence in her front or back yard due to 2 electric poles in her yard. She was told that its an issue due to them not being able to service the poles with a fence up. She thought about putting up two runners but was afraid to leave them unattended and chance them getting tied up and hurting themselves. 2. She bought a 12x12 foot pen that she keeps them in during the day while kids are in school and the adults at work, weather permitting. Other than that they are inside dogs. 3. They have learned how to escape the pen and it is a continued problem now. She has had to leave work several times after her neighbor let her know that they got loose again in fear of them getting hurt. The issue with this is that there is someone in her area that is shooting dogs. Other other people in that area have mentioned that their dogs and cats were shot and killed also. They have already killed both their neighbors dogs. Waylon has already been shot and has made a full recovery. Vet said it was a 22 and he was lucky that it didn't do extreme damage to his inside due to the bullet bouncing around until it exited. It entered in his chest and exited out his ribs. She lives in Jamestown,TN and German Shepards are labeled as aggressive in that area after the incident where and elderly lady was mauled and killed by 6 German Shepards. Mind you she was on the edge of their property and they probably saw her as a threat. She has reached out to everyone that she knows to try to re home them for their safety. There are no rescues in her area due to it being a very small town. She is at a loss and has asked for my help now. She doesn't want to take them to a shelter and them possible being put to sleep. They are good boys. They are young and full of potential. I'm waiting on her to get off work to send me some pictures of them. They are big handsome boys.
