Current dogs looking for homes:

Jessie - 7 year old female

Jessie is a 7 year old registered bred GSD who was sadly surrendered to the RSPCA.

She has had very little socialising with other dogs and so it is not recommended she go to a home with any other pets however she is a real sweet heart with people.

She would benefit from being in a home where someone is home most of the time. Her new owner must have extensive experience with the breed as she has had little training.

She is of an age where she is content to be with her people during the day but she would love a good walk at least once a day.

If you can offer this lovely girl a forever home please give Jo a call. Jessie is $350

 

Foxy - 10 year old female

Foxy is one of our sad cases having being surrendered to the pound at the ripe old age of 10. She was found wandering and when her owner was notified he didnít want her anymore.

She was terrified of the world but since being in foster care she is slowly but surely coming out of her shell. She would suit an elderly couple who have had experience with the breed and will be able to spend a lot of time with her at least while she settles in to her new home.

She is good with children, other dogs and cats and would be a lovely companion for a couple or a single person will give her love and care in her twilight years. POA for Foxy.

 

Gidget - 4 year old female

Gidget is a 4 year old registered bred GSD who along with her sister and a number of other dogs from the same breeder, was surrendered to the RSPCA.

She is a lovely girl with people but not good with other dogs or in fact any other pets as she has not been socialised and has been kept in a kennel or a crate for most of her life. She has also been used for breeding as has her sister Jessie so we are after a loving forever home for both girls.

We would like her to go to a home where she is the only pet and in fact she should not be exposed to other dogs or cats in her community until she has been desensitised and properly trained. An experienced home is a must for this deserving girl. It is not her fault she is not good with other pets and we feel the best home for her would be just with humans who know and love the breed. She must not go to a home with small children as she is not used to them and she is definitely not to go to a home to be expected to guard the premises while everyone is out all day. She deserves the best home from now on as she has not had a good start. If you would like to offer her a loving home and have had shepherds before please contact Jo. Be prepared to discuss the amount of exercise you are able to provide her and also the type of diet you will be able to give her. Gidget is priced at $400

 

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
