Big Ears Everywhere!

It seems that lately a number of dogs that have arrived at 12 Hills have huge ears that stand at attention! What does that tell you???  Guess we have a variety of German Shepherd mixes at the rescue.  Three of the boys with those big ears are Snicker, Doodle and Tater.  They came to us–straight from swamp land around 7 weeks old.  There Mom is German Shepherd, and their Dad????, well you know the story. Unknown!   We have been working with them each day and a great dog, Choco the boxer has been training them socially in dealing with animals and people. 

Now, they should be moving on to their families.  What kind of families?? Ones that will be able to spend special time with them, loving and being patient with their shyness.  No, they don’t trust all people yet, but growing to trust us and are licking our hands and allowing us to pet them. 

If you like their looks and have the patience and love to share–come and meet Snicker, Doodle, and Tater and maybe just maybe, they will win your heart and one of them will go home with you.Image



It all began one late fall day, no one knows the exact time or day, but two German Shepherd puppies decided to go on an adventure.  An abandoned and collapsed pool looked fun.  In the pool a little water–oops, we can’t get out. What will we do?  Several days later, maybe even a week, a law officer arrives on the scene to investigate dogs that had been abandoned.  After looking all around, he somehow stumbles upon 2 starving, emaciated puppies near death, in a pool that was partially collapsed.  He retrieves them and heads for 12 Hills Dog Rescue.  There they were given good food to build them up and lots of soft words of assurance.  After several weeks and lots of care—2 beautiful Shepherd puppies are ready for their next adventure.  We named them Bonnie and Clyde.  Bonnie is outgoing and Clyde is just a little more shy.

Now you want to know the rest of the story?  The dogs that were reported abandoned on the property were never found.  Where did Bonnie and Clyde come from?  Were they abandoned also, and left to die?  Or were they two puppies from a neighboring house on an adventure gone bad? We may never know and Bonnie and Clyde can’t tell us.  What we do know is that they were saved, thanks to a very kind man, and that they are well again and ready for new adventures with a loving forever family.
