Think about German Shepherds for a moment. A while back, many folks saw them as dangerous and unpredictable because they're big and look intimidating. But things have changed. Nowadays, most people know that they can be wonderful pals if you raise and train them well.
But, sadly, not everyone thinks that way. Herschel has lived a life of neglect, chained up in a backyard far from the love and attention he deserved for five long years. Despite the harsh conditions, he never lost hope.
