Skye is a very sweet 7 yo GSD who is about to start enjoying the best years of her life. She almost didn't get that chance. After being bred her entire life until now, she was almost euthanized a few weeks ago, having served her purpose. Luckily, a family friend intervened and Skye was allowed to look for rescue instead. We cannot stress enough how wonderful senior Shepherds are! They are past the crazy puppy stage, they are sweeter, more mellow... and they still have TONS of energy to go on walks and all sorts of adventures! This girl is so sassy, full of life, sweet, and she looks like she still has many good years left in her! She is great with other dogs, cats, loves people (she is very friendly and gives lots of kisses!). She is a joy to have around!
Even if you exercise and play with your dog daily in your fenced yard, please remember that you MUST still take your dog out on daily walks and outings, in order to provide sufficient stimulation, ward off boredom, and work on leash skills, and manners.
The adoption fee for Skye is $225, all of which goes back into offsetting our high-cost vetting expenses and rescuing more dogs. We are a 100% volunteer-run rescue group and rely on adoption fees and donations to continue saving lives. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, current on age-appropriate vaccinations, fecal, deworming, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, heartworm tested if old enough (and treated if positive), and microchipped.

Why are Sponsorships & Donations so important?
HUGS provides dog food, supplies, necessary vet care (emergency, acute, routine), heartworm and flea/tick preventative to the HUGS foster dogs while they look for their forever homes. This can be quite costly and challenging in many ways. Additionally, some of the dogs that we rescue arrive sick or injured and require hospitalization, expensive surgery or long-term medications or other treatment. This places a huge strain on our vet fund, and can affect our ability to help future dogs.
Sadly, without sufficient funding to transport, vet/treat, feed the dogs that we take in, we could not continue saving them. As a volunteer group that runs solely on donations and adoptions fees, we truly need your support.
