"Is there any other dog in the world?" Burroughs asks as she strokes the coat of Amber one of her four German shepherds who roam the home and cottage she shares with her architect husband Ken in Mid-City, and from whence she runs her New Orleans German Shepherd Rescue. Or taking a German shepherd who's been abused and is nothing but skin and bones, starved and covered with fleas and ticks and who has heartworms; taking that animal and getting her healthy and piaceri in a great, safe home. When an abused and sick German shepherd is treated and made whole again and finally, after an extensive background check of the prospective new owners gives her the green light, she hands over a healthy dog to those new owners. A life-size German shepherd statue sits in the center of the living room with a large portrait of her four German shepherds keeping watch above.
