Precious Is Ready to Leave her Pain Behind
5-year-old, female, medium, black and tan, German Shepherd
Good with other dogs: No
Good with children: Unknown
Good with cats: Unknown

What horrible time this poor girl has had. She came to SPR from Maricopa County Animal Care and Control and we were lucky enough to get help from our incredible network, including PACC911, to help pay for all the vet bills to help this pretty girl finally be pain free.
Precious had horrible ear infections and a large hematoma in her ear. She was likely suffering and in pain for a long time. We don’t know much about her background, but we know she is one brave girl. But don’t worry, other than some ear cleaning, we think Precious is as healthy as can be and his ready for a new life.
Precious is really a sweetheart. She’s had to endure multiple vet appointments and surgeries and still manages to love attention from people. Our volunteers have enjoyed watching this girl blossom after finally being relived of her pain.
We aren’t sure if Precious is good with other dogs, but we do know that she seems to be reactive when walking by other dogs on a leash or near the kennel. So, we’d suggest that Precious would be best as an only dog. We also don’t know if she’s good with children, but given that she really hasn’t had any training, it’s probably best that she be in a home with older children, so she doesn’t accidentally knock them down.
And any potential adopter will need to ensure that Precious receives regular training and plenty of exercise. Now that she’s feeling better, it’s her chance to shine and learn what it means to be a happy and healthy, well-behaved GSD.

Shelter Description

"Saving Paws" rescue specializes in German Shepherd Dogs and Belgian Malinois. These are the two primary breeds used in military and law enforcement service worldwide. We also partner with other rescues and can assist in locating your perfect pet.

"Saving Paws" is a registered 501c3 non-profit corporation. All staff members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time and expenses. Donations and adoption fees offset the high cost of veterinary care, food, boarding and numerous other expenses. By adopting from “Saving Paws", you become our partner in the rescue. You can make a difference in both financial contribution and working to save deserving animals. Adopting a rescue dog saves two lives. The K-9 friend that you adopted and another that can be brought in by the space created. Open your heart and adopt today.

"Saving Paws" primarily obtains dogs from local "High Kill" shelters. We are often there last hope. Our adoptions have gone on become service dogs, search and rescue dogs, sport dogs, AKC title holders and of course cherished family pets and protectors. Please consider a rescue dog and give these wonderful animals a second chance.

Shelter Driving Directions

Currently our resources do not allow one central facility for our operations. We have many dogs in foster care and board others at the Canine Country Club. They are located in Phoenix, Arizona. All adoptions are by appointment. We do our best to be available and accommodate your schedule. However, being volunteer, we ask for your patience and assistance in all matters. A minor inconvenience is a small price to pay for helping a dog in need.

"Saving Paws" also participates in numerous adoption events year around. We will post these to our website and to this venue as they are scheduled.
