German Shepherd Puppies and German Shepherd Dogs rehomed across the UK. Help and Advice on All Aspects of Owning a GSD
We Urgently Need Permanent Homes and Foster Homes
We have record numbers of dogs sitting in commercial boarding kennels waiting for their new homes to come along, many have been in there for months, some over a year and we have two dogs in their 3rd year in kennels. Not only does this drain our funds, but more importantly it is not fair on the dogs being kept in confinement for so long. They need homes
What is wrong with these dogs? Nothing, they have just been discarded by humans through no fault of their own.
This is poor Marvin who has never had a home of his own and has only ever known abuse at the hands of humans until he came to GSDR. Marvin has been in kennels since February 2015 yet he is a kind, gentle, loving soul who just wants to be loved. He does not like being in kennels and he does not deserve this.
Rescue dogs are not damaged dogs, they have just been let down by humans. It should not matter what colour, size or age they are - that is not rescue. Dogs like Marvin deserve a chance not jail!! Can you free a dog from kennels and give him or her a kind loving home?
If you can help, please fill out an adoption / foster form.These are some of our kennel dwellers.
Dog Of The Month - Benji
Benji has been in kennels over 2 years now, he was only 7 years old when he first came to us This poor dog has spent all this time in kennels because he isn't perfect and he isn't perfect because of the cruel treatment he has received from humans. Benji is a bit shy with new people initially but never aggressive and he loves other dogs.
He is a classic example of a dog overlooked because he is not perfect yet his problems would easily be overcome by a kind patient owner, willing to help Benji overcome his fear of humans.
Benji came from Romania where he had a very poor start in life suffering cruelty and brutality by the hands of humans He deserves more than to spend the rest of his days in kennels.
Humans failed Benji, he should not die unwanted and unloved in kennels.
Please consider giving this beautiful boy a loving home. Benjis' details.
Hera, our lovely older lady of the week
Now in kennels over a year - so sad for this poor older girl.
This lovely gentle older lady is our Hera who is approx 10 years old and has had a very bad life up to now.
We believe that she has never had a home of her own as we believe she may have always lived on the streets having litter after litter of pups, poor thing.
You can bet that she has not been treated well by humans and that most of her puppies never survived.
A really nice older girl who deserves some human kindness and love, something we doubt she has ever experienced before.
She is chipped but not spayed as the vet thought she was too old to undergo this type of surgery.
Yun can read more about Hera although we don't know too much and you can see more pictures of this sweet girl on Hera's page
Zeus has arrived in the UK
My name is Zeus. I am now the only survivor of 3 dogs destined for the UK. Unfortunately my friends Mufasa and Derek didnt make it.
Can you imagine having a thick, metal, rusty chain embedded in your neck? Every movement you make causes you pain in every minute of every day?
Can you imagine being tied up outside, with no shelter from the heat or from the cold and being fed scraps? Can you imagine ALL of this and then being abused as well? A stone thrown here, a kick there? Well, Zeus knows. This was his existence as a guard dog in China. His life was a living hell.
Zeus is now in foster where he is having a ball with lots of fields to run in and lots of new places to explore. He has bonded with his foster dad and is being a very good boy. He loves people despite the dfrueklty inflicted on him back out in China.
Zeus is fine with other dogs as liong as they are not in his face. He could certainly live with a female companion.
His dream is to find a loving home with a family who can give him what he has never experienced and that is LOVE. His Story
This gorgeous boy has now been adopted.
Cancer in Dog - Prevention and Cures
Did you know that a staggering 50% of adult dogs will die from cancer? That's half which is truly SHOCKING!
We should all be outraged at that figure, our four legged friends should not be getting cancer, it's a manmade disease.
In many cases cancer can be treated, but better that we protect our dogs from getting cancers rather than having to try and treat once the cancer is established.
Veterinary surgeons and the pharmaceutical industry profit greatly from cancer and both play on our fears of the dreaded disease, which will end up costing you a small fortune and ultimately the life of your much loved pet.
We offer you advice on how to avoid some of the common things that increase your dogs risk of getting cancer, how to optimise your dogs immune system and what to do if your dog is diagnosed with cancer.
What applies here, also applies to humans as well - Prevention And Cure of Cancer In Dogs
July 2016 Newsletter
Well it has indeed been a very strange year, not only for our weather but on the rescue front too. It's certainly been a bit of a roller coaster ride and it has been difficult to predict how things would go, given that they haven't followed the usual patterns.
What we expect to be quiet months have turned out to be our busiest and vice versa. I had expected July and August to be quieter for adoptions because of the holidays, but that has not turned out to be the case. This of course is very good news for all those lovely dogs waiting for new homes, especially all those that have spent so long in kennels.
Lots more in our newsletter including how Joe Johnson competed in the gruelling Spartan Race in Edinburgh to raise money for GSDR. This event is a 22 kilometres mountain run through Penicuik in Edinburgh containing 25 obstacles ranging from 9 foot wall climbs to crawling under barbed wire, swimming across lakes and monkey bars etc etc.
Our NE team also had a brilliant fundraising day at the Kirkstall Festival despite the atrocious weather. Read more
Why Vets Are Getting Away With Murder?
'The veterinary profession is broken and it isn’t about to change any time soon. Our pets are being over-serviced and we’re getting fleeced. We pay for the unnecessary vaccinations, the overly-processed, synthetic prescription pet foods that contain ingredients from China, and we pay for drugs and chemicals that are damaging to the immune system.
After shelling out for these services, pet owners need to keep their wallets open because, sooner or later, the chronic disease caused by these products like allergies and cancer will start to kick in and require treatment. They threaten the quality and quantity of life for our companion animals – and many of these diseases are caused by the products vets tell us are safe and effective.
The sad fact is, some common veterinary practices are harming our dogs. Vets today have too many drugs, vaccines and chemicals at their disposal and they’re overly willing to dispense them. The worst part is, they hold no accountability for their actions. In short, they can and do ignore vaccine label recommendations or prescribe harmful or unnecessary drugs and we pet owners have no recourse.' Why Are Vets Getting Away With Murder?
Campaign To Expose Vaccine Dangers
These two puppies Bilbo Baggins and Lyra were born in rescue after we took on a female GSD who unbeknown to us, was expecting. Bilbo and Lyra have never been vaccinated, instead have received 'nosodes' to build up their immunity.
Nosodes are a safe, cheap alternative to toxic vaccinations which are peddled by big pharma and veterinary practices and which are nothing more than revenue generators.
The first vaccine usually given as a very young puppy is probably the most dangerous.
Chris Day is pronbably the most well known homeopathic vet - 'Sadly, the acute-onset problems and the chronic issues can be set up by even the very first vaccine event, in a susceptible individual. We have even witnessed puppy and kitten deaths after the first dose.' Guidelines on Nosodes
Chris Day Alternative Vet
'No manufacturer will guarantee the safety of vaccination. Quite apart from dangerous and life-threatening anaphyllactic reactions, that can occur within hours of the injection, transient fevers and malaise and injection site lumps or abscesses, there can be chronic, late-onset problems. As a referral centre, dealing mainly with troublesome chronic disease, our own research suggests that over 80% of chronic illness that we see starts within three months of a vaccination event. Such problems include skin problems, allergy, atopy, autoimmune problems, heart murmur, meningitis, encephalitis, paralysis, nervousness, excitability, epilepsy and seizures, CDRM, cardiomyopathy, colitis, chronic diarrhoea, ear problems, 'virus' in horses, sarcoid, COPD and headshaking. It may even be that syringomyelia may be triggered by vaccination. Proving an association in any single case is not possible but the overall statistics are frightening.'
GSDR alway has and always will operate a NO DESTRUCTION POLICY because we believe that all dogs deserve a good life. We will find the right home for all the dogs that come into our care no matter how long it takes. German Shepherd Dog Rescue is both a registered charity and company, which produces yearly accounts so that you know where your donated monies are spent.
