When German Shepherd Rescue of
Orange County (GSROC) first heard about Astrid and Eisa, they
knew they had to help. The sweet sisters were born in a shelter
where it quickly became apparent something was wrong.
The adorable pair have a rare congenital condition that
inhibits cellular growth. Without the resources to meet the
girls’ special needs, the shelter turned to GSROC.
Astrid and Eisa were welcomed into the rescue family and placed
in a loving foster home. As they grew, the weakness in their hind
ends became more pronounced. They had trouble walking and required
assistance going potty.
After several months, it became clear the sisters would need
wheelchairs to stay mobile and independent. Luckily, they adjusted
quickly to their new wheels; running free for the first time in
Sadly, the girls’ vet has confirmed their condition is
terminal. GSROC shared the following statement with iHeartDogs:
“The condition has no cure, so we are providing them with the
best lives that we can give them. The girls are not mobile without
their carts, but they love it when they can run free! We would like
to provide them with the following to help them live the best life
possible, for however long we are blessed with their presence:
– 2 Wheelchairs
– Spa Day for 2
– Booties to help correct the positioning of their feet
– Just Food For Dogs
– Reusable diapers
– XL Puppy pads
– Beach Day
– Shopping Spree at Petsmart and iHeartDogs!
Astrid and Eisa are now six months old. Without the promise of
tomorrow, their foster family is determined to make sure they live
every day to the fullest!
