Kenya 4828

Hi I am Kenya aka Ladybug
I like everybody! I am 9 plus years old now. I fell into some tough times but my new fosters have been helping me get better. I am getting stronger and strong each week. I really cant hear much for some reason but I am learning little hand signals. I dont bother anything in the house and absolutely want mess in the house. I like to go outside and explore and hang with thier pack. Sometimes I play with the other dogs. I think my favorite place to hang is the Kitchen. Maybe because I was hungry for soooo long. I do get grumpy if you try to take my food or my attention. So wait your turn. :)

Virginia German Shepherd Rescue
Strongly supports Heart worm testing and treatment

A direct mesage from the FDA:

  Heartworm disease is a serious disease that results in severe lung disease, heart failure, other organ damage, and death in pets, mainly dogs, cats, and ferrets.  It is caused by a parasitic worm called Dirofilaria immitis. The worms are spread through the bite of a mosquito. The dog is the definitive host, meaning that the worms mature into adults, mate, and produce offspring while living inside a dog. The mosquito is the intermediate host, meaning that the worms live inside a mosquito
for a short transition period in order to become infective (able to cause heartworm disease). The worms are called “heartworms” because the adults live in the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels of an infected animal. 

All VGSR dogs are required to be both tested, and kept on Heart Worm Preventitives. 
It is part of our contract with all adopters.
















Sassy 3762

Sassy's in the House!
Sassy is large and in charge! Sassy found herself as an owner surrender in a kill shelter. She was on the code red list and had very limited time before VGSR pulled her to save her life. Sassy spent most of her life living chained outside during the day and slept inside a home at night. She has had limited companionship and people interaction. Despite that, she has been friendly with everyone she has met but can be reserved at first.
