Pet Lovers Compete To Give Abused German Shepherd New Home

RIVERSIDE (CBS) — Animal shelter workers in Western Riverside have been inundated with calls about one of their recent rescues, a white German shepherd who was dragged behind a pickup truck last week.

The 10-month-old dog suffered injuries to her paws after she was pulled behind a truck in the La Sierra area near Claycroft and Peacock lanes. Shelter employees said they expect the pooch to make a full recovery.

Now that she’s on the mend shelter workers are looking to place her in a new, loving home. The dog’s story has received so much interest that shelter workers are holding an essay contest to help place her in the best possible environment.

If you think you could give this dog a loving home the Department of Animal Services encourages you to enter your essay in their contest for this wonderful pup. The essay should describe the reasons you want to adopt the dog and what kind of home you will offer her.

E-mail your entry to or fax it to (951) 358-7300 by 6 p.m. on Wednesday. The winner will be selected on Thursday.

Authorities also ask anyone with information about the pickup driver who allegedly injured this dog to call (951) 358-7356.
