German Shepherd Dog
Belgian Shepherd Tervuren, Mix
An adotable dog in Wantagh, NY
Her owner died. Supposedly this 80 lb. longhaired Shepherd mix spent much of her life chained to a doghouse in his Deer Park yard. She stayed there after he died.
When the house was empty, neighbors fed âTallahâ on her chain for several months, and then called in cruelty complaints. The manâs estranged family didnât know her name or her real ageâ¦we still donât.
We estimate her age at 7-8 based on what the neighbors said and her pearly white teeth, clear eyes and ease of movement.
The estranged family brought her to Babylon town shelter to be put to sleep because they were tired of the complaintsâ¦The shelter refused. Instead they embraced herâ¦and even anesthetized her so her horrible mats could be shaved off without discomfort. Her tail was one big mound of mats, and her back end looked as if she had on a tutu or crinoline slip.
âTallahâ is friendly, energetic and super- sweet. She knows sit and paw. She has a spay scar and is heartworm negativeâtwo medical miracles in themselves. She is now at Last Hope and we are hoping the BEST IS YET TO COME for âTallahââ¦
