    The story for this dog is as follows: A friend of ours responded to a craigslist ad for a male German Shepard. When he arrived at the home, not only were the two dogs female, they were starved and left outside with no food or water and only cardboard boxes for shelter. He managed to acquire both dogs from the owners (presumably on drugs, he said that it was obvious). He kept one and we took the white one in order to help her get healthy. We took her to the vet, she was 46 pounds (more than we thought), spine and hips clearly visible, and tapeworm, hookworm, and heartworm positive. We got her all her vaccinations and treated the intestinal ... (Read More)parasites, but have not been able to afford to pay for heartworm treatment. We have gotten her back up to a healthy weight. You can no longer see her hips and spine. She is EXTREMELY shy and timid, so we are thinking that she was abused. She was afraid of our overly friendly dogs in the beginning but has warmed up to them and even plays with them. She is slowly warming up to us as well, but we are not sure how many positive human interactions she has had, so it is slow-going. She is housebroken. She knows to scratch at the door when she needs to go out, but she will have an accident if she is not let out soon after. This could be because she is on Prednisone so she is eating and drinking a lot. For being as skinny as she was, she is not food aggressive towards people, and she doesn't inhale her food. We have been able to free-feed her and she does just fine. She does, however, chase after our cats, so a home without cats is definitely preferable. I would say she needs a house with no or older children, just because young children tend to be loud and curious, which I think would scare her. She will need a lot of TLC and patience, but she is a good dog and would make a great pet for those who are willing to invest in her. As for the reason we are trying to rehome her, we were already at the legal limit for animals in our city before we brought her in. We are only allowed four 'free-roaming' animals. We could get a permit for the 5th one at the discretion of an animal officer, but two of our pets are cats and as stated, she doesn't seem to get along well with them. We wanted to help her, so we went ahead and took her in temporarily. Other than the heartworms, she is in good health now. She is very laid back and enjoys just laying around the house, preferably with something to chew on. She really is a good dog, and just needs someone who understands her situation. Also, I put 'mix' because I don't know for sure if she is purebred or not, so I didn't want to make that claim, but she looks pretty 'shepardy' to me. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a White Shepherd in Arkansas
    White Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Arkansas if they match your IifestyIe. A White Shepherd is a German Shepherd bred for its white coat. White Shepherds are more timid and sensitive than German Shepherds and should be trained gently. White Shepherds are very protective, but not hostile; they make great guard dogs and wonderful companions. White Shepherds should be well socialized early in life. White Shepherds that are properly trained and socialized are good with children and other pets. This breed can adapt to apartment life with sufficient exercise.
