Rescue a German Shepherd Dog with German Shepherd Rescue


DOGS AVAILABLE NORTH WEST
http://www.germanshepherdrescue.co.uk/german-shepherd-dogs-nw.html


Adoption
To begin the adoption process, please fill in the ADOPTION FORM which will be sent to our rehoming volunteer. Please be honest with your answers and don't put what you think we want to hear. Our rehoming volunteer will then telephone you to discuss adoption and to organise a homecheck.
When German Shepherd Rescue considers placing a dog in a new home, care is taken to ensure that there is a good match between the dog, its new owner and the new home environment in which it will be living. Not every dog will be right for a given environment and not all potential owners will be right for a given dog. Sometimes we get requests from individuals who attempt to give us a detailed description (possibly highly unrealistic) of a dog they would like us to provide them with and whilst we do try to find a dog that fits in with the wishes of the prospective new owner, dogs do not "come to order", they are all individual and have their own personalities. Both the dog and its new owners will have much learn from each other and will require time to adjust, but if approached with a practical and realistic attitude, adopting a German Shepherd can be a deeply rewarding experience.

The initial stages of the adoption process begins when you contact us. First we will discuss with you over the phone your specific situation, i.e. if you have owned a German Shepherd before, how the dog is to be accommodated, your other pets if any, how much time will you be at work/have available to spend with your dog, and your family commitments. We in turn can then advise you of a dog that may be suitable for you. If there is not a dog available at that time, we will contact you when there is.

If you decide after talking it through with us that this is what you want, we will arrange a convenient time for a home visit. Please do bear in mind that as we are all volunteers and many of us have day jobs so we cannot always arrange an immediate visit. We will however do our best to meet with you as soon as possible.

If all goes well and we are able to place a suitable dog with you, we will contact you again to arrange with you a suitable day and time to bring your new companion. To keep our costs down, you may be asked to travel to meet with a volunteer to pick up your new dog. On accepting you new dog you will be asked to fill in and sign an adoption form which sets out the legal conditions of adoption from German Shepherd Rescue.

In order to help you through the initial stages we will keep in touch to see how your new dog is settling in and how you are managing. During this period we will do our best to ensure you get any support and guidance you need. Telephone support is available, so there is no need to worry about being left to cope with any problems alone. Most placements do succeed well and some of our adopters even come back for more!
In general we do not re-home in the following conditions:


* where a dog is going to be left longer than 3-4 hours on a daily basis, as this is very unfair to the dogs.
* where there are children under 7 years of age
* to applicants living in flats.
* where dogs will be housed outside and not in the house
* where a dog is going to be used for guarding purposes.
* to any applicants who intend to use any dog for breeding, as we have a no breeding policy. The rescue is not in a financial position to spay/neuter before adoption, but at the time of adoption you will be asked to sign an agreement that the dog will be taken to the vet for this procedure to be carried out as soon as feasible after the adoption. You will be asked to provide evidence that the procedure has been carried out. Some dogs will have already been neutered or spayed by their previous owner.
* We do not re-home where there is no secure garden area for the dog to go into.
* Following adoption we ask that all new owners insure their new dog as soon as possible - Vet fees can be very expensive!

A GSD makes a wonderful friend and family pet but If you haven't had one before it is important to understand that this is a working breed and they can be 'difficult' to the uninitiated. A GSD needs a lot of exercise, some good basic training and companionship - they like to be with you. They can be very vocal and they are naturally protective towards their new family and property so you will need to think how you can manage this so as not to upset friends and neighbours. A bored GSD can be very destructive.

Our Ceasar was a rescue dog. We have had a difficult time with him but it was worth it. Be very sure if you think about adopting one of these dogs. A colleague of mine adopted a GSD about 4 months ago, it was 18 months old, he has had to give it back because he couldn't handle it which is very sad. They are fantastic dogs but you need time and LOTS of patience.

awww Ceasar is gorgeous.
is he still missing your other dog?? shame about your friend with the GSD.
would he not of considered training classes??
suppose it's a bit late suggesting it now anyway frown

but they do make wonderful family pets.

They should be well socialised from an early age and need plenty of exposure to people and other dogs so that they do not develop aggressive tendencies as they mature. These dogs thrive on challenging activities and they are so willing to serve their master and please.
A bored GSD can be very destructive and if left alone will trash your house and contents with ease lol!
you will never wear them out, they will always be ready for more. If you are a couch potato, a GSD is not for you.
They also shed hair constantly and although they only moult once a year, it lasts for 365 days lol! so your hoover will work overtime and it's unlikely that your clothes and furnishings will ever be free of dog hairs again as well as what you are eating and drinking these too will be contaminated with stray hairs. laugh
I just love em!
