Pedigree but rescued.
by Dayna's mum
Beware of the dog!
Dayna came to me via a long route which led back to her owner who was a breeder of German Shepherds. He no longer wanted her as the puppies she was bearing were now not suitable for his requirements. Poor dog.
Dayna arrived. I viewed her with some trepidation as she was quite a formidable specimen. I need not have worried. Previously she had lived on the stone floor of a garage, but had now graduated to her own dog basket with vet bed, in the pack porch. She also obviously approved of her new diet, therefore settled in well.
She was to give me 6 years of devoted service as a guard dog. She showed no fear or favour to anyone who tried to enter the premises, but at the same time doing them no harm. Her very presence was enough of a warning - she towered over our five-bar gate.
Unfortunately Dayna was to die very suddenly of natural causes with only 1 1/2 hours notice of impending doom. This was undoubtedly best for both of us - we were best mates!
Dayna was a pedigree dog, but no longer wanted, so to me she was a much loved rescued dog - never to be forgotten.
