German Shepherd Puppies and German Shepherd Dogs rehomed across the UK. Help and Advice on All Aspects of Owning a GSD
Our lovely mature boy Troy has finally left the building and gone to his new home.
Troy 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 Troy deserve a chance, not jail!! Can you free a dog from kennels and give him or her a kind loving home?
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.

Keira Urgently Needs An Experienced Foster Home
EXPERIENCED FOSTER HOME URGENTLY NEEDED......
We need a foster home for this beautiful girl Keira who is only 21/2 years old. She needs to be the only dog in an adult only home.
Keira spent the first 18 months of her life in a cage where she chewed off her tail. She suffers from Severe Separation anxiety..... she would sleep on your head if she could but she needs to learn that it is ok to be left on her own and that you will always be coming home.
Her bottom is her hot spot and she will attack it in times of stress or excitement. Kennels is no place for this beautiful girl because it is making her issues 10 times worse.
She will be the most loyal friend you could ever wish to have.
PLEASE IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCED WITH THE BREED AND CAN HELP GET IN TOUCH TODAY
Welcome to the first edition of our newsletter for 2018 which is packed full of lovely stories and information which we hope that you will enjoy.
Well, the year has started with a worrying number of dogs that need to find new homes. We were receiving rehoming forms right up until Christmas Eve and they started again in earnest on Boxing day.
So far we have received 220 forms which are way over what we received at the same time last year. This, of course, does not include all the other dogs we take in from other sources such as the pounds. I have to say that many of the excuses for rehoming are becoming pathetic.
We have rescued a worrying number of dogs that were either at the vets waiting to be put to sleep or were booked in to be put to sleep. Thankfully many vets now will not just put to sleep and will ask the owner to contact us or they will call us and alert us.
On the plus side, during December despite the cold days our steadfast fundraisers in the North East region could be found at our partnered Pets at Homes stores supporting their Support Adoption for Pets fundraising. During the long dark days of January, the team waited with anticipation for the calls to come and collect the donations......the result is staggering. Thank you to our partnered stores at Kirstall, Guiseley, Waterloo and Clifton Moor The combined total of their donations was a totally amazing £7491.76!
Grab yourself a coffee, put your feet up and read our February 2018 Newsletter.
Mention DM to anyone who has ever owned a German Shepherd, and they will all know immediately what you are referring to.
DM (previously called CDRM) is a terrible, progressive condition which will ultimately lead to the euthanasia of the dog because it has become paralysed at the back end and can become doubly incontinent, although it's usually the bowels that they lose control of rather than the bladder.
The brain remains alert and front end remains normal so watching your poor dog trying to drag itself around on its front limbs is heartbreaking, which makes the decision to put to sleep even harder. Some owners do resort to doggy wheels, and many dogs do very well on these, although it takes a great commitment from the owner.
Conventional medicine can offer you nothing to help your pet with DM. Some alternative ideas.
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.
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 you 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!
Please help us by making a donation so that we can help re home more unwanted German Shepherd dogs. Donations can be sent to Jayne Shenstone, German Shepherd Dog Rescue, Little Vauld, Marden Hereford HR1 3HA. We also accept Paypal payments - just click on the Paypal button below. Thank you.
