  • 24 Rescued German Sheps Treated to Day of Pampering

    PLACENTIA – Serenity had a full day of relaxation ahead of her.

    Her nails would be trimmed and her matted fur shampooed and groomed. She could even get an oatmeal bath and a massage.

    The 4-year-old German shepherd and 23 of her furry friends were in for a day of pampering Thursday at Pawsatively Elegant, a pet salon in Placentia that donated its services and shut down early for the special clients.

    “It’s like a whole spa day experience and probably the first of their lives,” said Maria Dales, director of German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County. “I’m so excited. This is ‘Extreme Makeover: Shepherd Edition’.”

    Serenity didn’t always have a peaceful existence. About a week ago, she was rescued in a raid on a condemned home in Highland, a city in San Bernardino County.

    She was living with 37 other pups, the bulk of whom were rescued by the Newport Beach-based rescue group, which has a kennel in Yorba Linda.

    The county suspected that the animals were abandoned and left a notice on the residence asking for contact within 24 hours, officials said. When they didn’t hear back, they seized the dogs – 37 were German shepherds and one was a Chihuahua. The owner has since signed off on the seizure.

    The rescue was the group’s largest in its 18 years...........

    So happy for them. The thought of doing 24 is pretty exhausting though especially in poor condition, but worth it.

      That was really nice of Christine to do, and a great experience for her students.
