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.

This handsome gentleman is 8 year old Max. We rehomed Max some months ago and the home was perfect. Sadly however, the lady who adopted him had a fall (not Max related) and suffered a broken arm. As a result she no longer has the strength to handle Max and has been told she will not regain full strength in her arm.

Max has been neutered: vaccinations restarted: microchipped.

Max takes a minute or two to adapt to strangers, but when he is satisfied they mean him no harm soon becomes friendly. Since coming into kennels I have taken things relatively slowly with Max, but each time I have done something new he has been absolutely fine. After walks he stands or sits patiently while he is towelled down all over including all four paws. Has also been patient when being groomed.

Max hasn't lived with children, but has been around children from one year upwards in both his previous homes and has been good with them. Was told that in his last home he would hold a toy and let a child pull it without any adverse reaction.

Max is reactive to other dogs. He will bark at them, but handled confidently will walk on by without lunging. Currently walked on a dogmatic headcollar. Sits nicely while it is put on and shows no irritation towards it while walking. Walks beautifully at the side. Recall cannot be fully tested because of dog reactivity, but in a secure area recall is good. Will fetch a ball and each time drop it or allow it to be taken from his mouth. 

Since coming into kennels Max has been walked regularly with other dogs. His favourite is a friendly, two year old GSD bitch: he has an extra spring in his step with her. Has also walked with the two year old along with a 6 year old GSD bitch. He has walked in a pack with the two GSDs and two Newfoundlands. Max will walk along beside them on a loose lead. He can be a bit reactive to strange dogs coming towards him: will bark, but doesn't lunge and with a confident handler will walk on.

Max will travel fine in a car.

The ideal home for Max would be with one or two adults. Visiting children should be no problem. He needs human companionship and has proven to be a great companion to the humans he has been with. A quieter location would be best with walks that afford a bit of space between him and other dogs that may be encountered. In the right home Max will quickly become a devoted companion.
