Marlene is a beautiful and elegant 4 year old German shepherd, about 75 lbs. She had extensive neurological surgery for nerve damage in her lower spine that interfered with her ability to eliminate. Her bowel movements are now normal and she is on a special diet to support her intestinal health. She is otherwise in good health.  Because of her issues she has been in three shelters and several home and is currently in boarding. She wants and needs someplace safe and secure to belong. She goes to day care and gets along well with other dogs, has her basic training and is loving and affectionate. She will possibly need to be crated and re-house trained but having other friendly dogs she can learn from would be a plus. Marlene loves car rides, and just being with her person. No cats please.
