Ninei’s story started as a sad one, but the we here at LWD (along with her advocates at Saving Paws Rescue Arizona!) are determined to turn that around.

Ninei is a beautiful, sweet, loving, 9-year-old German shepherd dog who was dumped at a high-kill shelter because her family was moving. She had spent her whole life with that family and was understandably frightened and confused with this sudden change. As a new grantee from the Grey Muzzle Organization, the folks at Saving Paws just couldn’t let this beautiful girl get overlooked!

From the rescue:

Ninei is the most adorable, fluffiest girl you’ll ever meet. She loves everyone and appreciates hanging out with her people and resting in a comfy dog bed. Her foster parents say she does great with their male GSD. She’s a social and mellow girl, yet her inner-pup still shines through at playtime. She loves going for walks, starting out fast and energetic, then slowing up after about a mile.


She appears to be fine around older children and other dogs, although we’re not sure how she would react to cats

She knows some commands and is a very well-behaved girl. It helps that she is treat-driven, which makes training super easy. She has the face of an angel and the sweetest expressions.

Saving Paws only adopts within their home state of Arizona. If you live there and are interested in showing Ninei that senior girls deserve EXTRA love and attention, please complete their online application to get the process started. http://www.savingpawsrescueaz.org/dogs/

Let’s help find this gorgeous girl a forever family.
