The exuberant shop hound. A two-year-old German Shephard that can’t wait to be your next best friend. Although she’s nicknamed “Naughty Dog”, she’s far from it. She loves belly rubs and she’s the proud protector of her home and her sister, Gertie.

Gertie is an 11-year-old German Shepherd mix that was rescued from Paws+Claws Rescue & Resort in Hackensack. After her abandonment, Gertie came to visit as a foster at Northlakes in June 2019. Instead, she found her forever family. Ask more about her courageous journey.
