Hero Haus. . . . . . the Brave German Shepherd

My forever dog friend, Thelma was part Shepherd but looked like a gray wolf.  German Shepherds are reported to be the second most intelligent breed with Border Collies being the first.  And GS are known for their love and loyalty to their  “people.”  Haus was a rescue dog and had only been with the family of little little girl for several months but he was well bonded and brave to protect her from the very venomous Rattlesnake.

You will hear that a  fund for Haus’ treatment is up to $33000.  That may seem excessive but when I was in Arizona, every season some person would be bitten by a Rattlesnake, mostly Diamond Backs.  The cost to treat one adult  is well over $100,000 and the insurance  companies don’t feel obligated to cover it.  People were warned to avoid those bites to insure not being bitten in their wallet!

    All dogs (and other pets) are so giving and loyal and Haus was willing to die for his friend. I hope that his treatment has saved him and that he is home soon with his loving family. Please find ways to let us know how he is.
    Please also give him head rubs and gentle shoulder scratches from me – xxx
