Meet Rizzo aka Rizzy! She is a German Shepard mix that is about 2 years old. She was found as a stray in central California on July 6th. Her days at the shelter were coming to an end until Connections Pet Rescue saved her! She then made her way to Washington State to be fostered. All we know about her old life is that she had a litter of pups recently.

There is one clear word to describe Rizzo and that is sweet. She is a sweet and gentle dog, that loves being with her person (or people). She’s curious and inquisitive into what her human people are doing. She picks up on routines and expectations quickly. Rizzo adores going on walks and adventuring in the woods. She might even make a fabulous running partner. She does quite well on the leash though most likely hasn’t had any formal training. She expresses curiosity about other dogs, but isn’t quite sure if she actually wants to meet them. Rizzo potentially could do well with another older mellow dog that she can learn how play and be a dog from.

Each day, Rizzo becomes more comfortable and secure in her new found life. She’s learning how to play with her toys and that it’s ok to relax and take a nap. Rizzo is an incredible dog, that can't wait to have her forever family take her home and love on her.
