While specializing in German Shepherds, we are working towards educating the public on microchipping, spaying/neutering, heartworm treatment and prevention, and many other pet needs. We are working to build partnerships with other rescues and work tirelessly to assist in the overcrowding of shelters while placing these precious animals into loving forever homes.

Update on Ikora.

Our group shall always strive for 100% transparency. With that we come with the sad news that the decision to euthanize Ikora was made.
Ikora came to use as a stray on the streets. Her story completely unknown; we only knew given her condition she was stray for a very long time.
While in our care we saw a lot of different personality traits, some of them concerning. We also saw severe illness with her extensive stay at an ER facility with Parvo.

She was in multiple foster homes, her most recent foster has years of GSD experience. At our normal vet, we had a situation of the vet and staff being bitten, she also turned aggressive to the staff at the ER facility. In her most recent foster home, she showed continual signs of aggression towards dogs and humans.

We consulted with trainers and the vet staff at both facilities where she was seen and all came back with the same recommendation. Euthanizing is what’s best. As much as we want to save every single dog that comes into our care, we can never lose sight of public safety. We wished for a far better outcome and our decision was not made lightly. When multiple vet staffs, trainer and extensively experienced foster all come to the same conclusion, we must listen and heed the advice. Our board members with her as we let her go peacefully so she was never alone.

We are saddened by this loss and for whatever Ikora had to endure in her time on this earth. She deserved better, they all deserve better. Every rescue faces these difficult decisions. They are never made as the easy way out. They should always be a last resort and should always cause great grief for all involved.
