>>JJ: WELCOME BACK TO THE BLEND. YOU HEARD OF THE ENERGIZER BUNNY, NOW THE ENERGIZER GERMAN SHEPHERD. SHE’S AS SWEET AS A BOX OF CHOCOLATES.>>Shawn: HERE TO INTRODUCE US TO TRUFFLES IS JULIE PYLE AND SHERRI DALE. WELCOME.>>SO SWEET.>>Shawn: WHAT’S TRUFFLES’ DEAL?>>SHE’S ONLY 11 MONTHS OLD. SHE’S ALLOWED TO BE. SHE’S MORE ENERGETIC THAN THE AVERAGE PUP. SHE’S A GREAT, GREAT DOG. SHE LOVES PEOPLE.>>JJ: I HEARD SHE WAS RETURNED AS A RESCUE.>>SHE WAS ADOPTED WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT FOUR MONTHS OLD. WE ADOPTED HER OUT TO A FAMILY WITH YOUNG KIDS. AND THE MOM, UNFORTUNATELY, WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A — HAD TO HAVE EMERGENCY BRAIN SURGERY. SO, THEY JUST KNEW THAT, YOU KNOW, THEY COULDN’T GIVE HER WHAT SHE NEEDED, BEING A HIGH ENERGY DOG. THEY THOUGHT IT WAS BEST THAT THEY RETURN HER.>>Shawn: NO FAULT OF HER OWN.>>NOT AT ALL.>>Shawn: BUT BRINGING THE DOG TO THE RIGHT PLACE.>>WE ALWAYS WILL TAKE OUR DOGS.>>SHE’LL STAY REALLY HIGH ENERGY UNTIL — YOU KNOW, THEY’RE LIKE PUPPIES UNTIL THREE YEARS OLD.>>Shawn: A BRIEF MOMENT, THIS IS NICE. WHAT IS THE PERFECT HOME FOR HER?>>I WOULD SAY, A VERY ACTIVE FAMILY, WITH KIDS WOULD BE FINE, BECAUSE LIKE I SAID, SHE’S BEEN AROUND KIDS AS YOUNG AS 2 AND 4, 6, SHE’S GREAT WITH ALL KIDS. SOMEBODY THAT’S GOING TO PLAY WITH HER, AND JUST — SHE CAN BE THE OBSTACLE COURSE LIKE YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE. AND SHE LOVES IT. SHE’S NOT A FAN OF OTHER DOGS AT ALL. BUT, SO, SHE PROBABLY NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY PET. SHE JUST LOVES THE POOL.>>OH, MY GOSH.>>STRONG LITTLE THING.>>SHE’S SUCH A HAPPY DOG, SO SWEET AND SO HAPPY. YOU’RE BEING SUCH A GOOD GIRL. SO PROUD OF YOU.>>JJ: YOU GUYS DO SUCH AN AMAZING JOB OF SAVING THESE DOGS. IT REALLY TOUCHES MY HEART. YOU HAVE OTHER BEAUTIFUL DOGS THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION, AS WELL. HOW DO PEOPLE ADOPT?>>SUMMER IS REALLY DIFFICULT, ESPECIALLY AFTER THE FOURTH OF JULY HOLIDAY, AS YOU KNOW. SO, YES, WE DEFINITELY NEED TO GET SOME ADOPTIONS DONE. WE COULD USE FOSTER HOMES. BUT IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN EITHER FOSTERING OR ADOPTING, GO TO OUR WEB SITE, VEGAS SHEPHERD RESCUE.COM, AND FILL OUT THE APPROPRIATE APPLICATION ONLINE, AND WE’LL BE IN TOUCH.>>Shawn: YOU DO DILIGENCE BEFORE YOU SEND THEM OFF, OBVIOUSLY.>>RIGHT.>>Shawn: WHAT’S YOUR CAPACITY?>>WELL, IT’S ABOUT 8. BUT WE HAVE A COUPLE BOARDED AT OUR VETS, AND WE PROBABLY HAVE MORE FOSTER HOMES THAN WE’VE HAD IN A LONG TIME. WE’VE GOT SOME NOT SO EASY TO ADOPT. WE GOT FOUR OR FIVE SENIORS. THEY’RE SUCH GREAT DOGS. AND A COUPLE OF MEDICAL DOGS. IT TAKES THEM TIME READY TO BE ADOPTED OUT.>>Shawn: THERE’S A FAMILY OUT THERE THAT ALREADY HAS MAYBE A GERMAN OR TWO IS ABLE TO BRING IN ANOTHER PET, WELCOME INTO THE HOME AS — FOR A TEMPORARY BASIS. HOW DO THEY HELP OUT?>>THERE’S AN APPLICATION TO BE A FOSTER ON OUR WEB SITE, AS WELL. AND, SO, WE’LL REACH OUT AND DO, IF THEY DO HAVE OTHER DOGS AT THEIR HOME, WE DO MEET-AND-GREET, AND SAME AS WE WOULD DO IF YOU’RE ADOPTING. AND TYPICALLY WE ASK FOR LIKE AN EIGHT TO TEN-WEEK COMMITMENT ON A FOSTER. HOPEFULLY IN THAT TIME WE’LL BE ABLE TO FIND THEM A HOME. BUT IT DOES MAKE THE DOG FOR ADOPTABLE WHEN THEY’RE IN A HOME. THEY ARE GETTING THAT –>>AND THE FOSTER KNOWS THE DETAILS ABOUT THE DOGS.>>JJ: ONE THING THAT IMPRESSED ME, YOU GO OUT OF YOUR WAY NOT TO TURN A DOG DOWN. YOU BROUGHT IN DOGS, WE’RE AT CAPACITY, WE CAN’T AFFORD THIS, LET’S BRING THIS DOG IN ANYWAY. YOUR HEARTS AND SOULS ARE IN THIS. SOMETHING VERY VALUABLE WOULD BE TO HAVE A CORPORATE SPONSOR FOR YOUR RESCUE, WHAT WOULD THAT ENTAIL, AND WHAT WOULD THAT MEAN?>>IT DEPENDS ON WHAT KIND OF BUSINESS IT IS. GOING TO PETSMART, FOR EXAMPLE, YOU GO, AND THEY ASK IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE A DOLLAR OR $2. SOMETHING LIKE THAT WOULD BE HUGE FOR US. IF YOU’RE A SERVICE COMPANY, IF YOU COULD JUST, WHEN YOU’RE AT THE END OF THE SERVICE CALL, WOULD YOU LIKE TO ADD ON $10, JUST A DOLLAR. IT REALLY ADDS UP, AND WE COULD USE THE HELP. WE HAVE VERY HIGH MEDICAL.>>HOPEFULLY SOMEONE LISTENING HAS AN IDEA FOR YOU.>>SIT U-BOO, SIT. HEAD TO THE WEB SITE YOU SEE ON THE SCREEN. ALSO ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER.
