Current dogs looking for homes:

Connie is a 9 year old sadly needing to fine a new home. Her owner has had to go into hospital for major surgery and he has had to make the heartbreaking decision to surrender her. He has looked after her well and she is in great condition.

She is a lovely sweet natured dog and would make someone a great companion. We would prefer she go to a home where there are no other pets and with someone home all the time as that is what she has been used to.

An older single person or a couple would be perfect. Like all our rescue shepherds she is not suitable for guarding

If you can give this deserving lady a forever home please contact Jo on 94762782 or


Nina is a much loved 5 year old GSD bitch who is looking for her forever home. Her family have come from interstate and they cannot find accommodation that will take her. Due to new jobs they are also not spending enough time with her and they feel now is the time for her to have a home where she can be given plenty of exercise and attention.

She is a lovely dog with her children and their friends but being a typical shepherd she is very protective of her family and can be reactive to other dogs. She has had basic training and is currently in good health. She needs a family who have had experience with the breed and they must be able to spend time with her instead of leaving her alone all day while everyone is out. We would like her to be taken to obedience training on a regular basis. At this stage because she is untested with cats and not great with dogs she needs to be the only pet in the family. Please call Jo if you are interested.


Sasha is a 9 year old bitch needing a new home. Her owners are elderly and have had to move and they cannot take her with them.

Sasha is great with people albeit a bit aloof but not good with other dogs or other pets. She is OK with children but we would prefer she go to a home where there are no small children as she is a big girl and she could knock little people over.

Due to her age she needs regular 4 monthly injections for her arthritis but other than that she is in good health for her age. She must have a home where the owners understand the breed and she must be given her own space in the house. She does enjoy being outside as well but due to her arthritis it is best she be inside in the winter.


With all our dogs you must prove that you are capable of taking on a shepherd and therefore must have had plenty of experience. You must be prepared to discuss the type of diet you are prepared to provide and the amount of exercise on a daily basis.  What training  methods you plan to use and if you are going to be prepared to attend an obedience club. Please do not call if you are after a guard dog or if you have not ever had shepherds before. These dogs are very special and sometimes misunderstood. Unfortunately they have been in the wrong hands and they will need a strong understanding experienced owner to put them back on track.

Please contact Jo Tucker if you are interested and you can offer the best forever home for these worthy dogs. If you canít or wonít offer the best home please do not make contact as refusal will offend. We do ask that all our expenses be covered when we re-home the dogs so there will be a fee payable by  the new owner. They vary between $250 - $650 depending on the age of the dog and the costs already incurred. The costs are generally desexing, vaccination, kennelling, and other vet work.

Happy Endings
