Our dogs rely entirely on donations, your donations help UK German Shepherd Rescue continue its work in helping the abused, neglected and unwanted German shepherd dogs & puppies in the United Kingdom.
We'll come straight to the point: You can eliminate one or more animal's pain and suffering by a simple and modest donation.
Remember we have no paid staff, not even the boss gets paid or me! Expenses are hardly ever calmed,which are fuel cost only.
Your personal contribution will help us to help even more dogs.

Max is 5 years of age: neutered: microchipped: vaccinations out of date. Max needs a new home as his previous owner died and none
of the family could care for him.
Max was taken in by previous owner when he was 7 months old. He had been living with 2 Huskies and
was being bullied by them. The previous owner was a lady on her own in a terraced house with a yard. She was unable to exercise Max
and although we were told that he was exercised by a friend or two adult sons his behaviour on coming into rescue suggested that he
was fearful and anxious in the outside world.
On lead Max can walk nicely when not distracted. However, he is wary of strangers if
they encroach into his space. Fine with people when he gets to know them as demonstrated by his behaviour towards kennel staff and
a few other people. He is anxious if near other dogs and can bark at them, but we are working at allowing him to see other dogs at
a safe distance and will at his pace reduce the distance.
Off lead in a secure area Max loves to play fetch. Clearly understands basic
commands including sit, down and stay. Working on further commands including “watch” to encourage eye contact and “middle” to encourage
him to come through handler’s legs: these exercises are aimed at increasing his focus the handler.
Max has made some progress in recent
weeks. Initially when put on lead he would grab it and pull frantically. This turned out not to be lead resistance or any attempt
to play tug of war. He wanted to be out of his kennel but then needed immediate access to another safe area. This behaviour has not
been entirely eliminated but has been much reduced by giving him additional opportunities to go in and out of kennel. He has also
been presented with some natural oils and we believe that this is helping to calm him. When calm Max is a very affectionate lad.
hasn’t been much in a car but has been OK on short journeys. Was said to be housetrained and is generally clean in his kennel. A bit
fidgety when being groomed but settles and seems to enjoy it and often gives kisses during the process.
Max will need an experienced,
confident owner who can deal calmly with any continuing anxiety. Someone with the time and patience to allow Max to settle in quietly.
Someone who can continue his training and increase his opportunities to socialise with people and dogs at a pace with which he can
cope. Needs a child free, pet free home.
