We have adopted our second German Shepherd rescue dog. Kendra is an adult female from Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles, a great organization. She has been a tremendous addition to our family. Instead of buying puppies, we have always adopted unwanted adult dogs. First was a Golden Retriever, then a Chessie and two German Shepherds since.  The only downside with adopting older dogs is that they are not with you for as many years and its hard when they pass, but overall its very rewarding to adopt.
