Silver Whiskers & Grey Muzzle Homes
Our Featured Senior This Week is…TOPAZ!
Sometimes things happen in life that can have an impact on many living creatures. Topaz’s story is on that list. She was adopted from Rescue in the fall of 2010 and had a good life. Then there was a medical crisis in the family that ultimately led to no alternative for her human mom but to return Topaz to us. Everyone is sad and we’ve promised Topaz that we’ll work very hard to find her a new family as soon as possible.
One thing about Topaz is certain. She absolutely loves to play ball. In fact, she loves to go to dog parks as well but when she’s at the park, she’s more interested in her ball than she is the other dogs. Go figure! Speaking of other animals, absolutely no cats in Topaz’ new home.
She can be a bit shy around people when she meets them for the first time but once she gets to know you, she’s very accepting. Crowds of people can make her a bit nervous as well. Topaz wants to remind everyone that it isn’t necessary to be a social butterfly so if that’s okay with you, it’s okay with her.
By the way, when Topaz arrived at Rescue, one of our volunteers described her as friendly and pleasant, behaving just like any other proud German Shepherd Dog.
Can you help her find a new forever home? If the answer is yes, she’ll love you and stick by you forever.
We continue our quest to help our seniors with our Senior Program, Operation Grey Muzzle Homes. Too many seniors are left to die in the shelters because there is just no money to care for them and very few families who want to adopt a senior dog. With your donation to the ‘Old Friends’ Fund we can make sure that there will be funds for not only the seniors in the rescue now but also the ones who will need us tomorrow. With families who are willing to become a Grey Muzzle Home, we can give the seniors a loving family, a warm bed, and the dignity they deserve.
