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.

Neo is a handsome 18 months old GSD. He needs a new home as his owners had health problems and could not handle. Neo had little exercise in the past few months and as a result has not been well socialised with people or dogs.

Neo is entire: vaccinations up to date: microchipped.

Neo was good in the previous home and lived with two children aged 4 and 16. He did not react well to strangers coming in to the home: as our assessor found out Neo would bark and lunge towards them. Our assessor did not feel that this was outright aggression and experience with Neo in kennels shows that he feels insecure and unsure of himself around strangers.

Neo is eager to meet other dogs when out. Needs to learn to meet in a proper manner. In the kennel block Neo will often look in on other dogs, but even when they bark at him he does not offer any adverse reaction. Not known with cats.

On lead Neo can be strong: pulls towards the next scent he has picked up and can then stand for a bit analysing it in great detail. Can walk quite well on the lead for parts of the walk when kept away from all the scents in grass or on garden walls, hedges etc. Neo has only been off lead in a secure paddock. Has some recall but this needs a lot more work. He is not greatly treat orientated, but will come to see if the treat offered is to his liking. Has his moments when it comes to play: response ranges from disinterest to chasing a ball then leaving it to fetching. Seems to find a squeaky ball more stimulating.

Responds well when asked to sit and when asked for a paw. Can respond to down, but more reluctant. No food aggression: will wait until bowl put down and invited to eat.

Neo is clean in his kennel. He travels well.

This lad needs confident, experienced owners. May benefit from more than one visit prior to adoption. He needs owners who understand that he has missed out on training at the most important time of his life and this now needs to be done when he is fully grown. He needs owners who understand that he needs to be socialised with people and other dogs and who have the experience to deal with these issues or are willing to seek help. Time, patience and commitment are some of the keys to bringing out the best in this young lad. Would probably be best in a quieter household: older, dog savvy children if any.
