On Christmas, this big and beautiful shepherd dog was found, frightened and alone, living on the Los Angeles river. Thanks to one amazing man, he was rescued from his life of solitude and starvation.

That’s a beautiful story. Thanks for posting it.
Have you ever been to Compton, CA?
No.I hear it’s a cluster of trash people.
There are at least five German shepherd rescues in the southern CA area and between the rescues less than half the German shepherds in county animal shelters are saved. The rest are killed.
German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County as almost 80 up for adoption.
That said, in LA, there are dogs on the streets everywhere. No biggie.
California is the worst place ever for a dog. I have a handful of rescued ones at my place from shelters down there.
People are of little value, let alone some dog. It’s the home of the Crips and the Bloods. There are also numerous Latin gangs too.
Many blessings to all how help the cali dogs. My husband and I spent a small fortune over the last 4 years rescuing them as fast as we could...we’re taking a long break right now - it’s a nightmare down there.
“Homeless Frightened German Shepherd...”
Probably a single Mom too, recovering from drug abuse and a poodle which used to beat her.
He is going to get so much love back from that dog. I am lucky to have had animals that have never known a day being homeless or unwanted, and I have many that were until I adopted them. I wish none of them knew abandonment, but I can tell you the ones that have been abanadoned, you can tell they are grateful to be in a loving home, in a different way than the ones that have always been.
That’s what I thought, as well.
Looks like the old guy still has plenty of love to give in the life he has left. Hope he gets adapted.
I agree 100%.

Biggie’s probably not an old dog, judging by the gray on his muzzle. He is perhaps five years old at the most.
We’re on our 3rd GSD rescue. Our latest guy had health issues, his owners said they were moving and couldn’t take him. Yeah, right. He was 8 when we got him, he’s 14 now. Sure, he has some issues, what 14 year old dog doesn’t? I love GSD’s. We’re going to take a break after this one, since we rescue elder dogs. Everyone want’s puppies or young dogs, we take in the ones no one wants. It is fabulous!
Thanks for caring for the older dogs.
I am on my seventh and eighth GS rescue adoptee, five from the GSR of Orange County (CA), plus six foster dogs. All of my adoptees were hard to adopt dogs because of their age or temperment.
Thanks, they make great pets, don’t they? and are so loyal and thankful they have a home. One rescue, I stumbled upon a purebred GSD at our local humane society, she came home with us that day. It was pure luck I was there, and she was there. I was looking for a puppy for my parents, I came home with an 8 year old GSD. I couldn’t leave her there.
I really enjoy adopting the dogs no one wants. Isn’t that the point? To rescue a puppy is one thing, to rescue an elder or health issue dog is commitment.
The volunteer who went out to the shelter thought she was giving LiLi a last day out, turned out she was in better health than thought.
She was adopted by a billionaire's family two weeks after being dumped in a high kill shelter and is now living comfortably in a multimillion dollar home overlooking Newport Beach.
