LORAIN, Ohio-- At Bevan's Pet Center in Lorain, there are three special-needs German Shepherd dogs that need a forever home.

"These dogs are loving. They just have deformities that someone might not want to adopt them," said Deborah Parker with the Saint Frances Animal Sanctuary.

"They are your typical German Shepherd dogs. They just don't look like your typical German Shepherd dogs," added Ellen Linthurst, dog handler.

Meet Hank, a loving German Shepherd whose body is shaped like an S.

"He loves to run. He loves to go after the ball. He’s just crooked. He goes to the right. Everything goes to the right," said Linthurst.

Then there is Andy Garcia, a playful dog with two back legs that don’t work.

"He’s just happy-go-lucky. He just figures it out and moves a lot on his own. He probably has one of the worst deformities but he does very well," added Kelli Swain, owner of Bevans.

And lastly, Lucky is the youngest puppy who is missing a back leg.

"He got hit by a car and lost his back leg. He’s a purebred AKC registered German Shepherd longhair. He’s gorgeous!" said Parker.

They are three dogs that Parker with the Saint Francis Animal Sanctuary say need a special owner.

"They need someone that can look past their deformities. These dogs are loving, devoted, loyal, true to the breed," said Parker.

If you would like to adopt the dogs, call 440-897-2662.
