gunther bear - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted from Paws and Prayers, Akron, OH

Gunther Bear - posted 05/30/2013

From jacklyn of cleveland, OH

I adopted my dog, Gunther, at 9 months old by finding him on this site. I had typed in German shepherd. He had been just posted and had been just turned into the shelter in Akron. I must have called an emailed them a trillion times saying "I want him". He had just been neutered that day and was not available. I drove to PetSmart where they had a trailer and some animals they were trying to adopt out. I told them I would meet them there. I took one look at him and I said I want to adopt him. He was a mess, skinny, had bad ear yeast, his ears were covered in it and he had an infection in his incision from his neutering. I adopted him, took him straight to Banfield in Parma got him all his shots, medicine for his incision and his ears. He is now 3 1/2 years old and weighs 120 pounds. He is loved and soooooooooo spoiled and my best friend.
