High Sierra Lifeline k9 Rescue along with Your Local Pet Station rescued seven Belgian Malinois spotted down a 20 foot embankment near Lahontan Reservoir. There is an 8th dog still out there who is very scared, according to a press release.

The pack was spotted June 2 and a picture and description of the poor condition the dogs were posted on a local Facebook group.

High Sierra Lifeline is asking if you see the dog to not call her or chase her – please drop a pin at the location you saw her and contact them at 530-448-2993 or thru Facebook Messenger.

High Sierra Lifeline is requesting donations to assist with the critical veterinary care these dogs need. All 7 are very underweight and most are suffering from GI issues. The dogs are being treated with antibiotics and dewormed. One of the adult males dubbed Tahoe has a damaged eye that will need to be removed as well as damage to the bone around the eye socket. Pictures and updates are on the rescue’s Facebook page.

High Sierra Lifeline has been working with the Churchill County Sheriff’s Office. It has been reported that the Sheriff’s Office did not receive any calls regarding the plight of the dogs.

High Sierra Lifeline k9 Rescue is a Nevada 501(c)(3) nonprofit that specializes in primarily Belgian Malinois, German Shepherds, and Dutch Shepherds - dogs that are harder for most shelters and rescues to handle.
