Senior Dog Gets a Second Chance
10-Year-Old German Shepherd Finally Finds a Home
Juda, a 10-year-old German Shepherd mix, came to the Shelter when his previous owner had to surrender him. We discovered that Juda had some reservations about other dogs and didn't always like to be around them. He did, however, adore people. Even though he was older, we wanted to do everything we could for this happy dog to get him ready for adoption.

Juda spent more than two months at the Shelter, waiting for the perfect family to find him. That family finally came in the form of Erin M. Erin came to the Shelter specifically looking for an older dog that others might be more hesitant to take home. She spotted Juda and fell in love.
