Breed/Type: German Shepherd
Location: Poway, CA
Ghost needs a hero!! Ghost’s owner is deployed and needs someone to care for Ghost Jan. 2, 2023- June 22, 2025. Located in Poway, CA, and can transport within a 4-hour radius.
The owner trusted someone to watch his Ghost, and the Ghost ended up being neglected and abused. When rescued from the kennel Ghost was extremely underweight and showed signs of abuse. Another individual was able to step in and rescue Ghost from this situation but can only watch Ghost temporarily.
Ghost is a loving sweet German shepherd who is well-behaved and enjoys getting attention, cuddling and playing. Prior to this situation, Ghost was a loving sweet dog that was social and playful with other dogs. The current caregiver states that Ghost is still a loving pet and is playful with other dogs but can exhibit guarding behavior, and can become reactive towards other dogs.
Since Ghost has been through a terrible ordeal, we would prefer that the foster home is an adult-only household without any other pets.
Foster term might be less. The owner might try to bring him to Japan.
