Shasta – The Rescue Dog

Every year thousands of unwanted animals are neglected and abused. Many eventually end up in shelters where they are put to sleep. This story is based on actual facts about Shasta, the Great Pyrenees that we rescued. We know he was born on the western slopes of the Sierras, in a farm that some would call a puppy mill. We know he was in terrible shape when he was surrendered. The Sierra Pacific Great Pyrenees Rescue spent about $15oo to have him treated. He had a lung infection, ear infections and foxtails buried in the skin between his toes that had to be surgically removed. He had never had any shots at 18 months of age. He was losing his hair from poor nutrition. This story will touch your heart because of the most amazing happy ending for Shasta.
