Lula, German shepherd

Lula is a darling female German shepherd dog currently housed at Fur Angels Rescue.

Lula loves to socialize — she's happy to keep company with other dogs. She already has had all of her shots, is spayed and fully vetted. Fear not: She is already house-trained.

Lula's current caretakers say:

A nice family adopted me and thought I'd be a good companion for an autistic child. But the child doesn't like dogs, so I ended up neglected and living in the yard for sometime. It's no fun being out here by myself. I really like being around other dogs, kids and people. And I'm only a year and five months old. Don't think I deserve a loving home? Could it be yours?
