Bob

Here is Bobs story on how he came into rescue:

Bob’s distraught owner has been ordered (in Ireland) by the Court to rehome Bob or he will be destroyed because he barks and the neighbours complained and said “the children are frightened”.
So Bob has travelled from Ireland to UK to find a new forever home.

Kayla

Kayla was brought to us with her sister (from a later litter). Her sister is only 9months old and we managed to get her straight in to a suitable home.

Their owner sadly had to give them up because of illness. Kayla has lived with children of 8 yrs and older.

Mitzi the First Bionic German Shepherd

  • Post category:News

A German Shepherd called Mitzi has become the first dog in the world to be fitted with a pioneering prosthetic ankle.

The three-year-old had her rear right foot amputated after she was trampled by a horse.
But the lively dog is back to enjoying walks with her owner after being fitted with an artificial foot and ankle by pioneering vet Dr Noel Fitzpatrick.

The prosthesis is the first in the world to have been inserted into a fully moving bone and allows Mitzi to walk with a normal gait and no limp.

We at GSD Rescue in Surrey have worked closely for many years with a number of animal welfare groups in Ireland who are constantly under pressure to rescue so many German Shepherds in urgent
need of new homes.  There is a serious problem in Ireland with a constant  over population of dogs , mainly due to over breeding & owners not neutering their pets, coupled with a small national population of 4 million people means that the number of suitable, caring,  family homes for German Shepherds in Ireland is very low.

Keisha

I am told she has lived with 5 kids under 5 and 4 cats. Has lived most of her life in the kitchen and garden and we suspect had very little exercise re walks. The neighbours have been shouting at her over the fence

Keisha is a little unsure at first and can appear to be distant but after a short while she responds very quickly and can bond very affectionately.  Once she knows you she is an affectionate dog who loves cuddles.  She walks well on a lead and once settled will make someone a great dog.

Samson

Due to his family emigrating to Australia, Samson needs a home. His owners are not rehoming him without serious consideration, but because he is such a big fellow, the sheer cost of flying him to Australia is enormous.

Samson has not been under our rescue, so all the information in this thread is supplied by his owners and Samson is going into foster directly from his home.

Firstly, Samson will need a calm, confident & experienced GSD and/or large dog owner. He is not good around dogs, though he has lived for the last few months with another dog in his home – a GSDx ,male pup – Samson’s owners carefully introduced him to the pup & he accepted Buster ( pup) after 6 weeks of supervised introductions,

Since being in foster he has met and got on well with other GSD’s in need.

Jason

His background is that he belonged to a pub but the people sold it on and left him behind. The new owners looked after him but then he got parvo and they put him into the vet but when they were told how much the bill was they said they weren’t paying and to put him down. The vets had become very fond of him and after saving his life couldn’t put him to sleep and asked for help with him. He is between 1 and 2 – really friendly with people – typical Rottie boy and I think the cross is more than likely gsd. Unfortunately a docked tail. He has mixed well with other dogs on his walks with us. I just find him a loveable boy.
