Denzel, the little German Shepherd

Share This Story!

My German Shepherd passed away after 11 years and I wanted a new dog for my remaining dog who so depressed.  I found littleDenzel in his new home Denzel in a CA rescue.  They saved him at the last minute from a public shelter that was just about to put him to sleep.  The rescue said I could have him, but getting him to me was the problem.

I posted him on Pilots N Paws to get him from California to New Mexico and immediately had interested pilots.  The trip was all set and at the last minute one of the three pilots had to back out but the other two stepped up to go that extra leg, and he arrived at his new home and his new brother loves him!  A huge thanks to pilots Dan Thompson and Harry Amster, they made it happen!

    I was the first leg pilot from San Diego to Blythe. What a wonderful experience such a treat to fly Denzel to his new home. He wanted to ride in my lap, but settle for getting as close as he could as you can tell in the pictures.

    The hardest part of the flight was not turning around and keeping Denzel for myself! I am glad you found him Kerry and I am sure he is glad too.
