German Shepherd Welfare & Rescue

German Shepherd Dogs available to experienced loving homes. 
Many of these dogs have been surrendered by their owners or abandoned at pounds.
All the dogs are desexed, vaccinated, and  wormed before they go to their new homes


Sasha is a beautifully bred 2 and a half  year old bitch who has had to be surrendered as her family do not have the time for her. She has a lovely temperament and is OK around other dogs of similar size. She is not good with cats or smaller dogs. She would suit a family with older children or teenagers as she loves kids. Once again please do not call if you are after a guard dog or you are full time at work or school or uni. This little girl needs attention and love and security and just as important plenty of exercise. At least 1 hour off leash running a day and a separate walk for at least another hour.

Ben is a 5 year old beautifully bred boy who has been neglected. He is however showing that he has not been affected by lack of socialisation, training or even a decent diet as he is not shy or timid . He is already learning his basic commands but he is a resource guarder so we need a home where the owner is either an ex police dog handler, a GSD trainer or better still a GSD behaviourist. He has never been set any boundaries and so he does not know right from wrong or what we consider acceptable behaviour. He is fine with bigger dogs but not good with small dogs or any other pets. I would not want him to go to a home with any children or even older teenagers. He must be slowly but surely introduced to society as he could be overwhelmed and go back into his shell. He is not a fearful dog but I wouldn’t like his new owners to have too many expectations straightaway. Once he has bonded he will be a wonderful loyal companion and will reward the new owner with love and loyalty. Please do not call me if you are not experienced and do not meet the above criteria.

Tiger is a 3 year old beautifully bred German Shepherd whose family circumstances have changed. His owners have had to make the decision to rehome him as they have a small family and a very busy lifestyle that sadly does not include Tiger. He has been left on his own and has not been taken on regular walks. Because of this he will need to have an owner who is knowledgeable and strong who is home most of the time. He is a lovely dog with people and older children. He is not good with any other pets of any size and he is reactive out and about according to his owner. The owner was unwilling to with me with Tiger and I am sure in the right hands he will be a loving loyal addition to a knowledgeable family. As always I offer ongoing assistance to help with any issues regarding the transfer to the new home.

Tyson is another well bred boy who was sold to guard an industrial commercial property in Sydney’s West. He was caged during the day  and expected to guard at night along with another GSD bitch. Considering he has not been treated as a German Shepherd should,  he has come out of this reasonably well. He is just 4 years old and will rehabilitate with time and patience. He would suit an experienced owner and someone who is home most of the time with no other pets at all. He would not suit a home where there are young children either.

Hunter is yet another well bred dog who  has to find a new home at the ripe old age of 10 nearly 11 in November. His owner is disabled and his carer has died which means the owner has to move from his pet friendly accommodation. Hunter is extremely protective of his owner which is understood however he would need an experienced owner who would be able to work with him in order to change this habitual behaviour.

These 4 dogs have issues due to their environments. However in the right hands I am sure they will adapt to consistency, love, proper training and boundaries. They are fundamentally lovely dogs and they deserve a chance at a decent life. Please call me if you can take these loveable rogues into your home and your hearts. If you require a guard dog and  you and your family are out working all day please don’t call me as refusal will offend.
