A German Shepherd meets a family who will change his life forever.

Imagine the agony of being covered in open wounds with blood trickling down your legs, all while being severely underweight.

It would be an understatement to say that this young boy was neglected.

This child underwent months of treatment at the veterinarian and will never be in pain again.

When he was res.cued, he weighed only 53 pounds and had mange, bacterial infections, anemia, and a host of other issues. He recovered quickly and moved into a loving foster home while awaiting adoption.

Then he met a family who would have a profound impact on his life.

Presley, now known as Posse, is a sweet boy who adores children, is a leaner, adores his mother above all else, and enjoys going for walks.


Because of their medical conditions, dogs like Posse/Presley are labeled “res.cue only” at the shelter.

Supporting local res.cues like Coastal German Shepherd Res.cue OC gives you the opportunity to help these dogs receive the care they so desperately need and to give them a chance at a wonderful life with a loving family.

Thank you so much to Dogma Pet Portraits for capturing this happy ending!
