I wonder what kind of impact she will have on the home pack if she joins us. Will the hierarchy be overturned? Will the positions be up for grabs? Will Ilsa feel insecure? Will Ilsa become overly jealous of me? Is it wise to try to integrate this new dog into the pack? Is it better to just consider her a wayward traveler on her way to the German Shepherd Rescue?
I don't have the answers to these questions. I only know I won't forgive myself if I do not try to rescue this dog.
Courage without ferocity
Beauty without vanity.
Strength without insolence.
All the virtues of man, without his vices.
