Hey! It's me! MEATBALL! I'm a big, fun-loving boy. My mother, Mamma Mia, and my 5 siblings came into rescue after being surrendered to an Animal Care Facility. Turns out that DDRTX was our last hope of leaving that shelter, so thank goodness they stepped up for us! Our condition when we were surrendered to the Facility was pretty poor: covered in fleas, sores, and swollen with parasites, we needed a lot of medical intervention. DDRTX has been addressing all of our medical needs and we are quickly healing from our physical and mental traumas. I'm the most well-adjusted boy in my family, I love attention! I've been happy since day 1 in rescue and I love everyone I meet. My foster mom can hug and kiss me and I love to give her kisses! I love treats and I LOVE to run and play. I enjoy toys and playing and running and climbing. I'm working on the doggie door but I do great with potty pads. I love to bark and vocalize like my other siblings-- we are a noisy and crazy bunch who tell it like it is! I'd love a doggie sibling (or 3) to play with. If you are looking for a well-adjusted, fun-loving, tiny German Shepherd looking dude.... here I am!
