Update: Adopted!

As 2016 draws to a close, a shelter in Indiana issues a special request for a dog suffering with terminal cancer. The Humane Society for Hamilton County reached out to Facebook fans about a beautiful German shepherd who is in need of a home for what remains of her life – the shelter wrote:

Autumn is an 8 year old, spayed German Shepherd who came to us along with 20 other GSD’s a few weeks ago from a breeder in Hamilton County. She had mammary tumors that needed to be removed, and we’ve done this. But, our hearts ache to share she has cancer. This kind, meager, beautiful dog has limited time. We don’t know how long Autumn will be able to share her love with someone, but we do know time is of the essence–and right now, Autumn isn’t suffering. She has an opportunity to live the last months of her life knowing the kindness and love of a forever home.

According to the shelter, Autumn is a well-tempered dog who would thrive in a quiet home. She has not shown any negative behavior around other dogs and she is described as “incredibly intelligent.”

The shelter’s final plea for this beautiful dog reads:

So, our New Year’s Eve request is for a very special person with a very special heart to come forward and give Autumn a place to finally call home in 2017. It’s a lot to ask, but we think Autumn deserves this.
