Gina-DSH ginger

Age: 3 years.

Shima—German Shepherd mix

ID No.: A544151.

Age: 3 years.

Qualities: Shima, who has been waiting at PACC since early August, is sweet, easy-going and great with other dogs! She came to the shelter with an enlarged kidney, and thanks to the community’s support, PACC’s doctors were able to perform surgery and save her life. Now she’s healthy and ready to go home! Our volunteers have noted she’s energetic and would do well with a family who will help her with her leash manners. Shima would be the perfect fit for an active family who wants to go on runs, hikes or walks!

Fees: Shima’s adoption fee will be waived due to her length of stay at PACC. She will also go home with all of her shots, a microchip and a free vet visit voucher! Shima’s new family will only have to pay the standard $17 license fee.
