Bexs - Kent
Bexs is a 3 year unspayed bitch. She is good with children and although she has not had a lot of contact with other dogs except her sister, she is good with with other dogs. She has lived with a cat but tended to hassle it. Bexs is very friendly and very intelligent. She has good recall and walks well on the lead. Bexs is having to be rehomed due to their owner having a severe car accident. She is in kennels at present where she is quite stressed and would fit into most family environments without any problem.
Bella - Kent
Bella is a 3 year unspayed bitch. She is good with children and although she has not had a lot of contact with other dogs except her sister, she likes to play with other dogs. She has lived with a cat but tended to hassle it. Bella is very friendly and can get quite excited meeting new people and has never shown any aggression. She has good recall but is very strong on the lead so will benefit from some training. Bella is having to be rehomed due to their owner having a severe car accident. She is in kennels at present where she is quite stressed and will need an experienced owner who is ready to take on this lovely, strong, excitable girl.
Sabre - Kent
This handsome lad is 6 year entire Sabre. Sabre is not keen on young children (the reason he is being rehomed) or cats but is good with other dogs and lives happily with 3 others. He can be nervous of strangers so needs a confident and experienced owner to set the boundaries and put him on the right track. Sabre does pull on the lead and will benefit from some training but our volunteer found him eager to learn when taken out.
Ben - London
Ben is a 5-year-old handsome chap who is not doing very well in his current home. He lives with a very vulnerable family with ill health, hence he thinks he needs to protect them from the world. His owners can't handle his protectiveness which comes across as aggression towards visitors. Ben is also strong and all these factors together result is him not getting sufficient amount of exercise and socialisation. He is brilliant with his family though - once he gets to know you, he'll give you all his heart. Ben is looking for an experienced, confident owner who will give Ben clear rules, good amount of walks, opportunity to socialise in a safe manner with dogs and people and first and foremost, wise leadership as we are sure Ben is really tired of his position of a household protector, which he thinks is his job! Ben is very good in the house environment - housetrained and without any signs of separation anxiety. He cannot be rehomed with cats or children though. Are you this special person who is looking for a proper German Shepherd with breed-typical qualities? Ben is waiting for you!
Tasha - Surrey
Tasha is a 4 year unspayed bitch. She is good with children of all ages and most dogs. She has never lived with cats. Tasha is good with people coming into her home but can be a little overprotective when on the lead. She loves to play with her ball and going for long walks. This poor girl is not getting the exercise or training she needs at present and will make a fabulous dog for somebody prepared to give her the time she deserves.
Harvey - Berks
Harvey is a 7 year entire male. He is good with older children and other dogs but unknown with cats. Harvey has not been given enough boundaries and is full of energy. Because of his jumping up at strangers in the home the owner is now nervous he may become aggressive and is worried because her daughter is having a baby soon and he may not accept it. Our volunteer saw no signs of aggression, just a lovely boy who needed some discipline and guidelines and wanted attention. He can pull on the lead but otherwise is obedient.
Kiki - Basildon
Kiki is a 10yr old entire bitch who’s owners emigrated. She is good with other dogs and cats and has never shown any aggression, she has also lived with another dog. She does have epilepsy which is controlled by daily medication. Kiki is a super dog and will fit happily into any home and is adored by her foster family.
Khan - Essex
Khan is nearly 4 and entire. He was wary of other dogs as he was bitten when younger but has been fine with dogs of all shape and sizes since being in foster. Khan is good in the house and travels well. Khan would be better in a home without children. We were told Khan is not good with cats but is living with 2 at present (who do stand up for themselves). This lovely boy just needs an experienced home where he will be given some leadership and boundaries and in return will be a loyal and loving dog.
Gemma- East Sussex
Gemma is a 12-year-old German Shepherd dog who has spent most of her life in a crate being bred from litter after litter. She deserves a forever home where she can at least spend the time she has remaining being loved and cared for as she should have had all these years. Despite being grossly overweight and having suspected tumours, she still somehow retains some zest for life and even loves a game of football.We know she does not have long left, but hope someone finds space in their heart and home to give this girl a belated Happy Ending.
Buick - Essex
Buick is 6 years and entire. We removed him from a home where he had lived since he was a pup. He had not been walked in 2 years, basically since their child had been born. Buick was due to be put to sleep because he had bitten the man (used loosely) of the house who had been on his hand and knees approaching Buick’s food bowl. When our volunteer arrived she was cheerfully told they had run out of food so we are not even sure when he last ate. He was certainly thirsty. Buick is now in kennels where he is quite nervous until he gets to know you (more so with men) and will show his teeth if unsure. This poor lad just needs a calm home that can give him back his confidence whilst setting the boundaries so that Buick understands that not all people are bad. Are you that special home?
Sadie is 5 years and spayed. She is good with children of all ages and loves to play with other dogs. She will chase cats when outside of the home. This lovely girl has never bitten but will cower away from strangers at first which is hardly surprising as this poor girl was rescued after having suffered a fractured skull from being hit with a baseball bat. Sadie has never been to classes but has good recall. Theonly thing she may chew is letters as they come through the door! This lovely big girl is not getting enough attention at present and would love a home where she will gets lots of exercise!
Pepper - Surrey
Pepper is a 6yr GSD cross who lives with young children but now needs to be rehomed as the children are stressing her. She is good around other dogs if they leave her toys alone. She is not good around cats as she chases them. She is full of energy and if left with her toys will play all day. She needs to be rehomed within an active family who will help her loose her energy.
Patch - Berks
Patch is a 5 yr old entire male. He has been a much loved family pet but his owner has had to move to a 1st floor flat with no garden and feels it is unfair on Patch. He is very friendly to visitors and has lived with a toddler and is good with children. Although he shared his owners with another dog - a spaniel - his owner was never confident enough to let him off the lead so he will need socialising with other dogs. He is a very attractive dog and craves affection.
Enrique - Kent
Enrique is a German Shepherd cross and about 8 years old. He was abandoned by a British family in Spain when they returned to the UK in 2009. It was arranged for him to come over to the UK last year and he was homed. But after 7 months he could not settle as their other dog was wearing him out. Enrique is currently fostered by the kind people who arranged for him to come to England. He needs a peaceful home with no other dogs, cats or children, a home where he gets the love, attention and care he deserves. Enrique is suffering from Arthritis and only needs short walks. He is a real soft touch, craving for attention, therefore a home with someone being around all day would suit him best.
Abbi - Kent
Abbi is nearly 2 and spayed. She is good with children but not cats or other dogs. Abbi is a friendly girl who was an unwanted present! She is very friendly and loves her ball but can become possessive over it. This poor young lady has never been given the time to be shown her boundaries and would benefit from an experienced home without other pets, who have the time to work with her on socialising with other dogs outside of the home. Abbi does suffer from a pancreatic deficiency but this is totally manageable as long as she is kept on the right diet and with pancrex powders.
Vinnie - Essex
Vinnie is a 5 year old entire male. He is good with children but not other dogs. Whilst he has lived with 2 cats they did tend to stay upstairs! Vinnie is fine with people, will typically bark at new arrivals but quickly settles down. Vinnie loves playing with his ball and his obedience is fairly good. Only being rehomed due to his owner now having to work long hours.
Kai - Hants
This 5 year lad is entire Kai.He is good with children but very picky about dogs and not good wih cats. Kai did liive happily with another GSD bitch for a while. Kai was trained as a security dog but has never hurt anybody and is fine with visitors. Kai is off course lead trained and is only being rehomed due to owner now having to work full time meaning Kai is being left long hours on his own.
Archie is an 18 month neutered male. Archie is a nervous little boy which can come out in aggression. Once he knows you he will let you handle him all over and doesn’t mind. He is a real sweetie, walks nicely on the lead, likes to play ball will give it up, okay with food and toys, his recall is good. If he feels threatened he may nip. Takes treats nicely, Archie is not good with other dogs, especially small ones. We don’t think he’s been walked too much as he is not too keen on getting his feet wet and dirty and doesn’t like stones in his pen. He plays stepping stones with the slabs and into the kennel. When he goes out he trots by your side happily but is a bit spooked by noises and different sounds. Can you give this boy a stable, confident home?
Zeus - Berks
This young man will be 1 in April. Zeus is neuetered and vaccinated. He is good with children and lives with a cat but not keen on other dogs but does live with 2. He has not much socialisation outside of the home however. Zeus has no recall, is still not fully housetrained and a heart murmer to add to his problems. Being rehomed as he is too much of a handful! Are you that very special home?
Tara - Essex
This gorgeous girl is Tara. She is nearly 5 and unspayed. Tara is going to need a very special and experienced home due to her past. She was never socialised properly with people or other dogs. When she was taken in by us she was suffering from severe nervousness and thanks to our very patient handlers in the kennels is turning out to be a super young lady. She is now walked by most of the staff but can become protective of her handler. She was very nervous of men but now loves Graham who runs the kennels. She is also quite relaxed with other dogs around so may be happy to live with an older placid dog who can help to continue build her confidence. We would not rehome Tara with children. Tara needs a calm, confident owner who is experienced with the breed, a home where there is not too much traffic and the more rural the better. Whoever meets Tara would need to be able to spend time with her at the kennels letting her get to know you. Are you that special person?
Lucky - London
Lucky is 5 years and neutered. He is good with older children but has never encountered younger ones. He is good with dogs, more so when off lead but will chase cats. Lucky is not getting enough exercise due to ill health of his owners and will therefore need some rework on lead training.
Iris is an entire 6yr old female who was supposed to be a guard dog but the staff have spoilt her and now loves anyone she greets. She lives on the Company property where she gets walked 2 -3 times a day, so doesn’t really meet other dogs. When she has met them she can be a bit dominant as she gets anxious. She doesn’t mind being handled all over except her ears which have had medical problems in the past therefore they don’t stand up. She is well trained, knowing all the basic commands so in the right hands she would settle and would be a good family pet. As you can see from the photo she is over weight so needs a diet
Tyson - Surrey
Tyson is a 5 year old GSD cross Newfoundland - not sure which bit is Newfie!! He is entire. Tyson is good with children and other dogs, except his brother with whom he fights since their father died and the reason for him being rehomed. Tyson is an obedient lad and loves people. He is a big boy so would appreciate somewhere with a lot of space to play and someone who can give him lots of exercise.
Taz - Southampton
Taz is a 7 year neutered male. He is good with children but not really known with other dogs as he has not been socialised with them for about 3 years.. He is not good with cats! Taz is a very obedient lad . Taz is only being rehomed as his owner is having to move into rented accommodation. This gorgeous boy just needs a home that can give him some love.
Rio - Kent
Rio is nearly 1 and has been neutered and is a cross we think but with what we are unsure. He is good with children and cats but not other dogs apart from the staffie he lives with. He has never shown any aggression but still mouths when playing and is good when meeting strangers. Rio is good with basic commands but is too much for his owner to cope with out on walks as she cannot control him when there are other dogs about. This young lad just needs an experienced GSD home to give him the training and dog socialisation he needs.
Angel - West Sussex
Angel is a 6 year old unspayed bitch. She has become very protective of her female owner and her family but does have a problem with men. She has missed out on socialisation with people and other dogs so will need a very patient and confident owner. Her owner is now losing her home and Angel has nowhere to go. Can you help this poor girl?
Amber - Essex
Amber is an 8 year young spayed bitch. She has not lived with children but is fine with the current owners grandchildren of 2 years upwards. Chases the resident cat outside. Amber does not like other dogs so would need to be the only dog but she loves people. Her back legs are slightly arthritic but she could do with losing some weight and getting more regular exercise. Her elderly owner has died and she needs a retirement home to call her own.
Simba - West Sussex
Simba is an 8 year old spayed bitch. She is a loyal and trusting dog with people when she has sussed them out. She does live with cats but isn’t that tolerant of them. Her basic commands are good and she is ok on the lead. We wouldn’t rehome her with young children as Simba does suffer from epilepsy which is controllable with medication.
Kaiser and Rocky - Kent
Well what a lovely pair of of boys these are, the older of the two Rocky is 8 years old and a neutered black and tan short hair, Rocky is good with children of all ages, but due to an attack by another dog when he was a puppy he doesn't like other dogs. He pulls a little on the lead but this could be worked with. Keiser is 5 years old and a black and tan semi coated entire male, he also is great with children and he likes other dogs. They both travel well in the car, although Keiser can on occasion get car sick. Both boys are....very sweet natured and very friendly, when our volunteer went to meet them she didn't hear them bark once. They loved playing in the garden with their balls. Rocky has bags of energy - she couldn't believe he was 8 years old. They have never lived with cats so would be better going to a cat free home. They didn't jump up once. The boys owner is unfortunately working long hours which means the boys are being left for up to 9 hours a day. They have always lived together and get on so well, so for this reason we would prefer them to be homed together, have you got room for this lovely pair!
