Wow. 198??  I sure hope they can move them out. 

What will happen to them if they aren't moved before the 30th?

they are an actual rescue, and they also have other breeds of dogs, I saw some more info on it just by Google ing Wolfgang, Ennis, TX.  It says if they dont get these dogs moved they will be PTS.  }++{  }++{

I think it listed like over 150 Purebred German Shepards along with other mixed breeds, and they noted some have had training.  

My friends dog was in Iraq he was a bomb sniffer, but he quit working cuz he was abused by the locals when he was kept outside at night.  He has had him now for about 3-4 Years.  I was out there not to long after he got him, and he was really scared when I walked towards him carrying a plastic bag, you can tell that baby was abused. And when my friend go him he was only 2.5 years old. He never showed any aggression though just fear.  He has blossomed into a wonderful and loving boy now though, and you would not believe how beautiful he is.  He is a true German German Shepard, my friend told me the hardest part was to teach him not to jump up to sniff the counters, he was trained to do that, so he had to relearn that it was not OK.

Now I just read on a site called Dogsters, (maybe some of you have heard of them, I have not) that all the dogs have been gotten out, }phew{ so maybe my e-mail was just late in coming, too bad people dont update more often.  I hope it is true!!!! ^^&^^
