Irma′s Story

Hi i am Irma!

The name comes from the Old High German "irmin", meaning "world". I would know as I am of German descendants. It’s a pretty powerful name but it suits me perfectly! I am a strong lady! Well, life made me be so strong. This is because when I was a puppy, I was taken to a farm by a man to be the guard dog. Unfortunately at the farm, there were a lot of male dogs who kind of took advantage of me and I ended up getting pregnant. Again and again and again. I became a breeding machine. However, my puppies were dying one after another from a very brutal disease called parvo. I was so sad to see all my babies gone. My system was becoming weaker as the time went by. Thankfully, one day a 2ndchancedogs volunteer came to my rescue. Oh the joy! We went to the vet, I got all the tests done and I was saved!! I was saved from a life of being forced to be both a guard dog and a breeding machine. I am finally at a happy place and couldn’t be more excited about it! I believe that now all its missing is a family that would want to adopt me to be part of the family.

Character & Temperament


When I first came to the center I was shy, as I had a hard life before I was rescued, so I needed time to trust people.

I was wary of strangers but not aggressive.

After a lot of work with my trainers I learned to trust people.

Now I can't wait to interact with people, get cuddles and treats.

My trainers say I am a very intelligent dog and would make a great addition to a family that is familiar with the breed.

I like to play with toys and I love going for walks.

Ideal Home for Irma


I prefer to join an adults only household as it will be a calmer and quiter environment!

I prefer to be the only dog in the house so I can have all the love and the kisses for myself!
