Arrival Story: Gypsy Belle was surrendered by her owner to the county shelter and was rescued by German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California. In the last year she has bloomed into a very social dog with both dogs and people. Gypsy is gaining confidence with gentle positive training methods. She has been adopted and shares her home with a Rottweiler mix named Magic Man. Magic is her best buddy and new brother. Her other best friend is Prieta, a long coat German Shepherd girl. We love Gypsy and are training her to be a great dog and member of our family.
Bio: Gypsy Belle LOVES to play with other dogs! She enjoys riding in the car and visits all the local parks. She howls on command and sings with Magic and her mom at least once a day. She loves to cuddle with her humans and herd her brother around the house.
Its hard to believe that Gypsy Belle has been gone for a year. She was so protective of me. We used to call her 'Moosie Girl'. She weighed 90lbs. and she was a very long dog. She had to back out of most places because she could not turn around.
Her life was not easy. Spinal surgery at 3 then finally cancer at 5. I miss her terribly, but I'm glad that she's not suffering any more. She helped make my life complete and I will always have a special place in my heart for her.
Happy Birthday Gypsy Belle! - your mom
P.S. thanks everyone for all your special birthday wishes for Gypsy. I'm sure that she's smiling and wagging her tail at the bridge.
My German Shepherd Gypsy passed away this morning from lymphoma cancer. She was happy and thriving on Monday, but by Wednesday she was down and was having difficulty walking. The recommendation was either amputation of her leg or euthanasia. We’re grateful that she did not have long to suffer. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
