In April 2008, a friend of mine called me to tell me that NEAS had a large litter of German Shepherd mix puppies, and she knew I was interested in adopting from a shelter. As I approached the outdoor fenced areas, there they were, about 8 or so gorgeous fluffy balls of love! They opened the gate and they all ran to me wagging and licking. Then I noticed this one smaller “runt” run under all of their bellies and lick my whole arm! That was it (Charles), Liam was coming home with me today! He is 6 human years young, and we adore our furry son! <3<3
