Here is an email update from a representative from the National English Shepherd Rescue regarding the English Shepherds in Pilot Mountain, North Carolina.
NESR is on the ground in NC now. The final count of dogs in our care is 12. There are 9 adults: 5 males and 4 females and 3 pups: 2 males and 1 female. All dogs but one have been into the vet for treatment, vaccinations, de-worming, spay/neuter. The remaining dog will go as soon as it is caught. Of the 3 dogs in the original group that went to an area shelter, 2 have been adopted and and the remaining one pulled by NESR. The dogs are somewhat shy and subdued and understandably so. Their world has been rocked. We have volunteers coming this week who will assist with socialization and leash training. We should have individual pictures of the dogs by the end of the week. Hopefully as people spend time with them we'll see some indication of personality.
We are still looking for foster/adoptive homes if you can help. Feel free to cross post this to anyone who may be interested as well.
