One of our Shepherds Hope family, Terri, is a very gifted artist and photographer. She recently lost two of her beloved shepherds and wanted a way to honor their memory and heal through her heart wrenching grief. The result is this beautiful portrait of her beloved Saber and Corona. Always looking to help Shepherds Hope raise funds, Terri asked if we would like to be part of a fundraiser to help our pack and help people honor their beloved pets. If you would be interested in getting a portrait of your animals, Terri has provided a link below. The portraits are mounted on canvas and will be ready to hang without framing. Looking for a perfect way to celebrate Mother's Day, Father's Day or an upcoming birthday? A portrait is a timeless way to remember a treasured pet.
So begins the latest adventure! Mavrick was found dragging a heavy chain and ended up at a rural shelter in North Carolina with next to no options of being adopted. German shepherds are not put on the adoption floor and require a rescue to take them. No one came to claim him.
After being at the shelter for a few days, the staff saw his crazy energy level and said 'this boy needs a job'. They contacted us and we went to go and take a look. As sick as Mavrick was with horrible kennel cough, he was raring to go. Hung off a towel and almost shredded it, wouldn't give up a ball or squeaky toy for even the most tasty treat. He's now with his foster mom and upon completion of his isolation, he will be transported and going into K-9 training class with Philadelphia's finest. Please send up some good thoughts and prayers for our boy. He is being treated for his kennel cough, will be neutered and we're working on his transport.
Mavrick hopes a few angels will step forward and donate to help make this possible. Although we've been bogged down with medical and special food costs for Zeus, we just couldn't let this opportunity pass by for Mav.
We'll keep you posted.

UPDATE 3/19/2016. After a 9 1/2 hour drive today, Mavrick is now with the Philly K-9 unit. What a brave and sweet boy he is. Here is Mavrick at the halfway point and is waiting for his pickup to start the beginning of his new adventure. We are soooooooooooo rooting for you, our boy. We know you will make us proud!
Double the Fun
Zeus and Pepper
Double the fun! Just under two years old, Zeus and Pepper were given up due to an asthmatic family member.
Zeus is a gentle giant. At 81 pounds, he is a good 20 pounds underweight and has suffered with terrible and painful skin allergies. Our vet determined he has severe food allergies. We have adjusted his diet, he's receiving medicated baths twice weekly and is on medications. He will be one majestic boy when he's fully mended! And just as sweet as they come.
Pepper is the cutest, spunkiest little girl. She is very petite with charming floppy ears and the softest coat. She loves to play and will jump up to give kisses freely.
We are looking to place them together. They have been together since 3 months old. They are just perfect for a home with lots of love to give and plenty of room to run and play.
They have won our hearts and we are certain they will win yours, too!!

Meet Bear, the newest member of our Shepherds Hope Family. He's had a really rough start in his short life, but he won't have to worry ever again.
Hi everyone! It's Bear. I'm settling into my foster home and I thought I would give you and update on how I am doing. My tummy was a little upset last night but my foster mom comforted me and I feel much better. I also have something called a "bed." It is the most wonderful thing in the world! I can't believe how lucky I am. I've started learning about manners, too. I'm walking on leash, learning to "sit" and not jump on people. It's all new to me, but my foster mom says I'm really smart and I pick up new things quickly. But you know what the best thing is? I'm with people who love me and give me lots of attention. Oh! I almost forgot. I need to thank everyone who has donated for my care. I've never known such love. More updates later . . .
Hi! My name is Bear and I'm the newest addition to Shepherds Hope. I haven't had the best start in life but I'm safe now and ready for the future. I'm just 11 months old and I have my whole life ahead of me. I was purchased as a puppy and chained up outside a business in downtown Charlotte. My owner wanted me to "guard" the place, whatever that means. All I wanted to do was greet the people who showed up. I was so lonely! When he realized that I wasn't "doing my job", he decided he didn't want me anymore and was going to turn me loose! Fortunately, a good samaritan stepped in and called Shepherds Hope. I'm so glad they did because anything could have happened to me. I've gotten a bath and have seen the vet. I'm being neutered next week. Aren't I handsome? My foster mom says that I will be available for adoption soon. I just know my new family is out there waiting for me. Is it you?
