The name says it all: Pretty Girl is a strikingly beautiful German Shepherd who has hit a patch of bad luck and is looking for her forever family.  Pretty Girl is only two years old and was found wandering the streets alone, which landed her in a local shelter.  Thanks to A Home Fur Now Rescue, this young girl has a new lease on life with a foster family, but they are currently searching for something permanent for her – a family for Pretty Girl to join as an additional furry child.

Pretty Girl is a warm, loving dog who likes to give kisses and be right by your side.  Just as in her German Shepherd nature, she is also very smart, and knows the commands sit, paw, down, and come, and she has the potentially to learn many more commands through the direction of a motivated owner.  Pretty Girl also walks gently on a leash, making her a great walking companion for those who like to take calm evening strolls.

Pretty Girl is being fostered in a home with a small dog and cats, and she gets along with them well, but she is selective about which dogs she will befriend.  She is also spayed and up-to-date with her routine vaccinations.

If you are interested in adopting Pretty Girl, contact A Home Fur Now via email or through their Facebook page here.

A Home Fur Now is a not-for-profit rescue that relies solely on foster homes to care for their animals.  Their mission is to save the strays, throwaways, and shelter animals and to improve their lives through medical care, spaying and neutering, and finding families that would be compatible with these pets.
