UK GERMAN SHEPHERD RESCUE
We are appealling for a very special home for our lovely Sky.
Sky is only around 3 yrs old, but has problems with her hips & hocks, which mean she will only be mobile for a few years. Her xrays show bone overgrowth and the vet has informed us there is no option for surgery.
So Sky needs a special home, who will exercise her regularly but not over do it. She would not be able to do hilly walks, or long hikes. She would benefit greatly from swimming, and the rescue will pay for 2 hydrotherapy sessions per month for her for life. Her weight needs to be kept low, and she would benefit from supplements such as Yumove, green lipped mussel, and glucosamine & chondroitin.
Sky is a happy girl, who rarely needs pain relief, but will need it more as time goes on. Worst case scenario in approx 2yrs time , she wont be able to hold her back end up. Best case scenario she will potter around for a couple of years and hopefully reach 7 or 8 yrs old. We simply dont know.
Sky has so much love to give. She adores children. She is great with cats. She is fine with other dogs. She is housetrained, travels well, and really enjoys the walks she does. Her recall is good.
Please can somebody open their hearts to this lovely girl, and cherish her for the rest of her days?
Currently in foster care nr Oldham, Lancs.
Female - 3 years old - in Oldham, Lancashire
Roxy is a stunning young lady, who has just turned 2 years old. Roxy has not been spayed, & is living with 2 other unspayed bitches! So no prizes for guessing why Roxy is looking for a home!!
Roxy is vaccinated, and microchipped, but as previously mentioned, not spayed.
She is fine with children of all ages.
Roxy barks and jumps up excitedly at visitors, not in an aggressive way, simply excitement.
Roxy does chew if left for long periods, so her current owner is crating her whilst out. She also sleeps in the crate.
Roxy currently lives with an unspayed husky, and an unspayed jack russell. Not surprisingly there are regular fights. Our assessor did observe Roxy relaxed in the garden with the husky.
Roxy hasnt been a in a car a great deal, so not known how she would travel. She is not walked at all by current owner, but was ok on the lead for our assessor. Recall unknown.
Roxy was quite excited to be out on a walk, but also nervous as it is a whole strange scary world out there.
Roxy is a lovely lady, who desperately needs a forever home. The stress & tension of the home she is in, must be driving her nuts!
Currently in Spalding, Lincolnshire.
This stunning lady is Zeta, who is approximately 9 yrs old, and was found as a stray in a terrible mess.
Zeta had been suffering from a skin allergy, which had become infected, leaving open sores on her back. Since being in our care she has responded amazingly well to treatment, and her fur is growing back nicely. She will need no further treatment once this has finished.
Zeta has just finished her season, so cannot be spayed for a further 3 months, new owners must sign our Neutering Agreement, and get this done as soon as Zeta is ready.
Not known how Zeta is with cats. We will rehome her with older children only, if any.
Zeta is such a character!! She is great with other dogs, but does like to be the top dog. She isn't aggressive, just bossy!
Zeta is perfectly house trained, and is fine to be left for a couple of hours.
She walks nicely on the lead, and her recall is fine. She loves chasing the young dog she is in foster with, but then gives her a cheeky bum nip!! So be warned, she can shift when she wants to!
Zeta travels well in the car. She doesn't appear to have a sensitive tummy, which is good as she is a real foodie! She will do anything for you as long as there is a treat involved!
Zeta is NOT hoover friendly, and will seek out the hoover & stand giving it abuse even when unplugged!!!
This cracking girl is in foster care in Warrington, Cheshire.
This handsome boy is 4 yr old Reno, who needs a new home as his owners are expecting a baby.
Reno is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
Reno has not been socialised with other dogs, so is now aggressive to other dogs. He has to be muzzled on walks, or walked with a halti so owner has complete control.
This is workable with, but would need alot of time, training & commitment from new owner to get him over this issue.
Reno is fine with older children.
Not good with cats.
Reno is a big bouncy lad who adores humans, and is great with visitors. Very friendly with our assessor .
He is housetrained, travels well in the car, and is ok to be left, he wont chew or mess.
Reno sleeps downstairs, but there is a stairgate preventing him going upstairs.
Reno knows some basic commands, and further training is a must for this lad.
Currently in Leicester, for anybody wanting a project that will reward them tenfold!
This lovely lady is 6 yr old Scoobie, who needs a new home as her owners can no longer care for her.
Scoobie is not spayed, and her vaccinations are not upto date.
She is fine with children aged 6yrs upwards.
Until recently Scoobie belonged to her owners parents, who have now moved abroad. Scoobie was always kept outside in a kennel. Since being with current owners, she is outside during the day time, but in the utility at night-time, and she is clean.
Scoobie does not like cats.
She is ok with most dogs, currently living with 2 very small ones, she doesnt get along with the small one with attitude, but is ok with the other one. She will ignore dogs on walks, unless they challenge her.
Scoobie is very friendly with people, and loves having visitors. She doesnt chew or mess when left, and although is excitable in the car, does settle once the journey is underway.
Scoobie does pull on the lead at first, but responds well to corrections,and is a very clever girl, who would love to learn more.
Her recall is good. She loves playing ball, and swimming in the sea.
This wonderful girl deserves a wonderful home.
Currently in Conwy, North Wales.
