The white GSDs are literally coming out of the woodwork in California! We have never had so many calls in just a few short weeks! Kathy J first spotted this boy in the shelter in mid July. When she inquired, she was told he had a CTA (Commitment to Adopt), and so we moved on and committed to taking other dogs. When the CTA failed to show up for him, this boy's situation immediately became dire. We asked for and received the following video:

According to Cindi (who took the video), "Very mellow."

Once we made arrangements to pull, our wonderful transporter, Tera, hit the road to pick him up. She had just completed the run to bring Chadd to us from another shelter, but she dropped him off and immediately got back on the road again! We are so grateful to her and her son, AJ, for their "double duty" today. Once he safely arrived at Crossroads, Cathleen gave him the name "Ryker."

We were told, "...the ladies (Alyssa, who did the pull, and Tera who did the transport) say he's sweet, but a bit shy. He was quite nervous, but Tera said he settled down."

When Tera picked up Ryker, we learned for the first time about the shepherd that Ryker had come into the shelter with. Knowing our policy of not leaving one behind, we inquired about the second dog and, thankfully, he was adopted the following day!
