Rex is a 4 year old male GSD:Bought as a cute fluffy puppy but when he grew up he was housed in the garden in a kennel/run. Rex has had little if any interaction with the outside world:

Rex is not neutered: not up to date with vaccinations , but he is microchipped:

Rex needs a lot of tlc: needs a bath and groom, but he is hand shy - does not like collar being held and cowers down if you put your hand down to him. He will roll over on his back and allow a tummy rub, but seems submissive rather than playful so this should not be pushed too much until he really learns to trust:

He can show a lovely side to his nature: people friendly: likes to be close to his handler: Likes a run in the paddock but does not really know how to play. So far when he has run up the paddock he quickly comes back. This is not recall it is the need to be close to handler:

Has lived where there were children in the house, but had limited, if any, interaction. A child free home might be best or certainly older, dog savvy children who will give Rex the time and patience needed to allow his confidence to grow.

Not known how he is with cats so we would not take the risk:

Rex ignores other dogs on walks, but he seems comfortable walking with other dogs:

Rex walks quite nicely on lead, but this is because he likes to have his handler close by. He is treat orientated and will take a treat nicely.

This boy needs a new owner who will invest time and patience to help him grow in confidence and to show him how to enjoy life being a dog. He will need training, but again time and patience will be the key: he needs positive experiences to enable him to develop trust and confidence.
