Starving and full of ticks, two shepherds wandered the streets for weeks

Both adopted!

Two starving dogs – one just an eight-month-old puppy, covered in ticks, roamed the streets in San Bernardino, California for weeks. The shepherds dodged getting hit by vehicles in traffic, scavenged for food and searched out human companionship whenever anyone would approach either one. Sadly, no one stopped, until finally an unnamed hero, who had seen the dogs wandering in the area, sent animal advocate, Andrea Neyses the photos of the two beautiful young German shepherds in dire need of rescue.

“Someone did stop,” Andrea wrote on her Facebook page. “a hero who had seen these shepherds wandering too long sent me these pics and called animal control who picked up last night and the animal control truck was VERY full. Not everyone has room to take strays home, but we can all do something.”

So what can we do if we are not able to bring a lost, abandoned or injured dog into our home?

“Stop and call for help,” Andrea added. “Share these dogs so they go to good homes, donate to your local rescues and shelters. Visit shelter dogs. I take pics and visit them – no greater feeling than when I see how happy the animals are to see me.”
