Heidi is a 9 month old GSD, that was saved by Gerdy due to a severe medical problem.

She was born with a defective esophagus that needed repair. She was totally malnourished and due to a lack of money, her former owners had never taken her to a vet to investigate why she vomited everything she ate.

Luckily someone convinced them to surrender her to our rescue. After extensive surgery and extraordinary care by a kind foster family, Heidi is in top shape, has gained weight and is now adopted by her foster parents.
