Please Support The Toughest Mudder Challenge For The Dogs  

Lee is an amazing volunteer for our rescue He has seen first hand what the rescue does on a daily basis to help German Shepherds find new homes. He has helped pull them out of dire situations and he has worked tirelessly to help them over their anxieties. We are a volunteer charity so all our pennies are given by you the general public. Without your support, we wouldn't be able to do the work that we do. Now Lee has decided that he wants to do something absolutely ridiculous to raise money that will help save more dogs and enable us to continue the work that we do., to bring them out of horrendous situations and give them hope of a happy life in a loving home. So he chose to do the toughest mudder in the Midlands in May next year....8 hours overnight of sheer hell..
Please help us raise as much money as possible. Every penny donated through the Gofundme page will go to the charity. Any amount no matter how small will help.
The rescue will be eternally grateful and Lee will be totally exhausted !! 

Olan and Kiz left tied to a benchOlan and Kiz Left Tied To A Park Bench

A few weeks ago, these two beautiful dogs were found tied to a park bench in London, abandoned by their owner who has never been found.

Fortunately, the relevant authorities were kind to them, picked them up and they spent 7 days in the pound before coming to GSDR to find their forever homes.

Kiz is a lovely affectionate, bouncy, young girl who doesn't seem at all traumatised by her experience. 

Olan is also a lovely boy but he is more true to the Caucasian characteristics and is protective especially of Kiz. He is also food possessive so will need an experienced home without young children.

Although they love each other they are not dependent on each other and as it is difficult to find homes for pairs, realistically we will have to split them.

Ideal homes for either of these two would be more rural and with at least a very large secured garden or land.

Could you give Olan or Kiz the home they so deserve?

Older Dog Dickens Gets a HomeDickens now Called Harry Bags Himself A Home.

Another of our lovely mature boys Dickens now called Harry has finally left the building and gone to his new home.

Dickens is an older boy, and dogs like him are often discarded by humans and then overlooked in rescue because of their age.

Please don't overlook older dogs who have so much to give and will be most grateful for somewhere warm and safe to live. They deserve homes too where they will know what it is like to be loved and cared for.

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 rescuing. Dogs like Dickens 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.


Although we are a German Shepherd Dog rescue, there does not seem to be an official Caucasian Shepherd Rescue here in the UK, so since 2013, we have been helping these dogs find homes and have built up a good knowledge of this breed.

Most of these dogs are finding their way into the UK through unscrupulous breeders in eastern Europe or coming in via questionable rescuers with no rescue back up here in the UK. Most that we have helped so far, have been picked up as strays here in the UK.

This is certainly not the breed for everyone and if you are considering owning a Caucasian Ovcharka, please make sure that you thoroughly research the breed first. They may be the cutest bundles of fluff imaginable as puppies but they are a giant breed and will grow into a very large immensely powerful dog.

Cesar has been in kennels a yearPoor Cesar In Kennels For 1 Year

This handsome boy is Cesar, a 3-year-old, neutered, male GSD who was found straying and spent a year in kennels abroad before coming to the Uk to try to find his forever home. 

He has obviously been somebodies pet previously as he knows commands and has been trained. He arrived very skinny but has put weight on since being here. 

He is very friendly with people but will need to be rehomed as the only dog and will require somebody who has experience of the breed. He isn’t suitable to live with cats as he will chase and due to his food snatching tendencies he is best housed with teenagers and upwards. 

Cesar is a handsome lad with a drive to please. With someone interested in dog sports such as agility he could prove to be a fun dog to work with. He is intelligent and would love a home that will use that.


September 2018 NewsletterSeptember Newsletter 2018

Highlights from the newsletter. The 2018 Kirkstall festival took place on Saturday 16th July and, like always, was a great day for GSDR NE.

The current total stands at £1240 however with many high- value items to be used in future events (Raffles/Santa Paws/Scratch-cards etc), this is expected to rise substantially!

Shepfest 2018 - Our final total raised this year was £2,285.50! We were a bit concerned about the heat for such an event but after asking our local vet for advice we created a 'Cool Corner' with paddling pools, wet towels, fans, and thankfully we had no casualties.

Daring Debbie Harlow chopped off her luscious long locks, raising £1000 for GSDR and donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust—an amazing organisation who provides real hair wigs for children and young adults dealing with cancer. I admit I thought she was crazy, but it looks stunning!

Pull up a chair, grab yourself a coffee and enjoy our latest newsletter.

Why Big Pharma Are Targeting Your PetWhy Big Pharma and Vets Are Targeting Our Pets?

It's a sad fact of life that we have seen the lifespan of our pets decrease dramatically over the last 2 decades and that dogs are no longer dying of old age but are dying of disease.

Our pets have now become the target of greedy drug companies and unscrupulous vets who are more interested in profit than the health and well being of our pets.

So whilst vets and big Pharma profit, they are making our pets sick and shortening their lives. Vaccines and toxic spot-on treatments are two of the worst for compromising the health of our pets but there are many others.

Why do vets get away with what they are doing? Well, it's simple because they don't have to fear being sued for large sums of money because, in law, pets are classed as property so have very little monetary value. So dogs dying of disease, dogs dying younger are simply collateral damage to them.

Be informed and don't believe everything your vet tells you - question everything. Better still, adopt a holistic approach to your pet's health and use natural remedies where possible.

Don't let your pet be a target of big pharma.

GSDR always 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.

German Shepherd Rescue

We are German Shepherd Dog Rescue the biggest and best charity in England and Wales helping to foster and rehome German Shepherd puppies and German Shepherd dogs (Alsatians).

German Shepherd Dog Rescue helps rehome German Shepherds across the UK. Can you help us raise funds so that we can rescue more unwanted German Shepherd Dogs?

If you are thinking of buying a dog as a family pet forget that puppies for sale advert, please read this article first.

Please do not contact the rescue specifically for puppies - buying a puppy. We are looking for loving homes for rescue dogs of all ages. We always have many German Shepherd dogs for rehoming. Can you offer to adopt a German Shepherd and give it a good home or maybe you could foster a German Shepherd until a new home can be found.

If you would like us to feature a German Shepherd dog that is looking for a new home, please contact us with your details. Please note that this is a genuine service for German Shepherd Rescue and not a listing for people wishing to sell their German Shepherd dog.

We do not have puppies for sale or dogs for sale but we do ask for a minimum donation which goes towards helping other needy dogs. Monies raised go towards kenneling and veterinary costs.

Volunteers are always welcome.

German Shepherd Dog Rescue is run by volunteers who are involved because of their love for the breed. Most have jobs and families and fit in rescue work when they can and at their own cost. Please be patient, and we will deal with your requests as soon as we can. Our rescue dogs are worth waiting for!
