Abbie is a 6-year-old German shepherd with a story to
tell. Last September, she was found emaciated and close to death on a
country road in California Hot Springs about 40 miles from Bakersfield. A
good Samaritan nursed her back to health and patiently searched for Abbie’s
owner but to no avail.
Abbie was then relocated to Mission Viejo where she lived
with a golden retriever who couldn’t handle the divided attention he was
receiving, so the owners contacted the Mission Viejo Amimal Services staff for help. In just a matter of
months, Abbie had won their hearts over and they were reluctant to bring her to
the shelter but knew someone was sure to fall in love with this sweet,
Abbie is a big girl with an even bigger heart. She is
eager to please and loves to sit by your feet waiting for the occasional head
pat. She walks well on a leash, loves car rides and was crate-trained in
her former home.
If you are interested in meeting Abbie, stop by the Mission
Viejo Animal Services Center where their friendly staff can help assist you in
the adoption application process. Abbie’s adoption fee includes her
vaccinations, spay and microchip.
