Super friendly, 8-year-old Tashi — meaning “fortunate” in Bhutanese — is a rescue from Northwest German Shepherd Rescue. When she was taken in, she was 7 months old and 35 pounds, which according to her human friend Andrew, was 35 pounds underweight. Now she is about 85 pounds. “She’s a lot happier than she was.” Tashi is not a huge fan of autofocus beeps or clicking noises resulting from camera shutters or skateboard wheels on the sidewalk.
