A story of Millie, shared with us...

My family was fortunate enough to adopt a beautiful 14 month old German Shepherd in 1997, we named her Millie. She brought us the greatest joy and her unexpected passing last week has left a huge whole in our hearts.

I contacted German Shepherd Rescue when my then 9 year old daughter wanted a "big" dog. Our family already included a Pomeranian we had found as a stray and two cats, so I explained that I needed a very gentle dog. I was told they would contact me when they had the right shepherd for us. A few weeks later we received a call that there was a dog in foster care with children, small dogs and cats, that might be perfect. They could have not been more right because she was perfect.

My family is extremely grateful for the work that you do in placing these precious dogs with caring people. I never understood how anyone could have given Millie up but I am very thankful that German Shepherd Rescue was there to take her and even more thankful that they chose to give her to us. Our vet comforted us by saying that she was lucky to have had us but the truth is that we were lucky to have had her grace our lives.

Thank you,
Brenda Nelson
