    Somewhere in a lonely back yard, a young dog lived chained to a tree without food, water or attention. He waited for that food, and when it didnít come, he ate dirt. Eventually the dog laid down and he didnít get up. But still, he didnít die. An anonymous Good Samaritan stepped in April 7 and rescued the German shepherd from sure death. The animal, not much more than skin and bone, wailed in agony on the way to get help. The dog was taken to an emergency animal hospital in Orange County where a horrified veterinary technician called...
  • GSROC (German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County) Is against Military Personnel

    The GSROC is a non profit organization that classifies all military personnel and their families as UNFIT to be able to own a dog. I earn over 6 figures, have a huge house, prior owner of owning german Shepherds and I was classified as unfit to adopt a puppy which was in the local shelter because I am a member of the United States Military as a Reservist. how unfair is this? Yes we might get deployed and we will have to find a home for the dog while gone but you can also get FIRED from your civilian job...
