When TAF shared the German Shepherd we were taking from our local open access shelter, we happened to see a comment that he resembled someone's best furry buddy who had recently passed, named Chino. We decided on that name for our new handsome pup.
As soon as our Chino was ready for adoption we received an application from a friend of the person whose dog had been named Chino. She and her husband had been looking for a solid, decent sized German Shepherd that could hopefully be trained to be a service dog for the husband. They came to meet Chino and it was literally love at first sight. We are happy to report that Chino is doing well and settling in at his new home. Time will tell if he can be a service dog or not, but regardless, this amazing couple has an amazing buddy-dog and they are all quite happy!
