Rescue Me ID: 16-04-22-00154  (male)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Shadow is a pure-bred Swiss Shepherd I rescued from the SPCA when he was 15 months old. He is now a beautiful 4 years old. We are now moving overseas and I cannot take him with me. He is a friendly and extremely intelligent dog who can easily still learn the patterns of a new household. He was a delight to train as he thinks over what you want to teach him. Shadow walks well on the leash and he and I and the other dogs go on regular walks. He needs the stimulation of the walk as well as that of a busy household. He loves people and cannot be left on his own. He will pine, grow bored and be naughty. Unfortunately young children scare ... (Read More)him (!) and he chases cats. He also can only eat Hill's Duck and Rice or Vet's Choice Sensitive because of an inability of his gut to digest anything else. I will therefore only let him go to a home that can afford the R1000/m food bill that this causes. I absolutely adore this dog and will carefully consider his next home. I hope you can provide it.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-01-00030Samantha (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Very, very, very sadly I'll be needing to re-home my precious pup, Samantha, at the end of April. My family is moving back to America and we're unable to bring her with as she has issues with her heart. The traveling would be far too much stress on her and also our vets have deemed it unsafe. We've had her since mid November, she was a rescue pup that I got through 1 kennel at a time, I had been looking for a German Shepard puppy as a birthday gift and they said they had one! We got her later that night covered in fleas and beyond skittish. After she was washed up (she's a pro at taking baths) and thoroughly had every flea removed she was ... (Read More)much more at ease. 5 days later she was vomiting non stop and we thought it due to the fact she was having proper meals. My day 3 of constant vomiting everywhere (including my bed at 2am) we brought her to the vet where they diagnosed her with parvo. If we wouldn't have brought her in when we did, she would have died. Alas she's a tough little cookie and after 5 days and 4 nights she was released back to us. Now fast forward to February, she's much more at ease, she sleeps in my bed every night and is basically my constant shadow. She is a bit weary of other dogs, but has never attacked or tried to. She gets on fantastically with children and loves all the attention she can possibly get. I walk her on the beach when not many other people are out, she doesn't need a lead and just trots along side me the whole time or comes running back as soon as I call her. She loves car rides, hooves and taking naps on people's laps. Due to her heart condition (they call it a 'great 5') she is stunted and will most likely not grow much more, she also looks like she is underweight even though she eats the required amount for her age/weight. She is still able to be physically active but has to take it easy due to her heart, and will most likely live a shorter life than accepted. Obviously we have no idea how long or what obstacles she will face. We currently don't have her on any heart medication which our vet says is fine. We'll cross the bridge of more options for her heart when we need to. Right now she is happy, completely healthy, active and content. She's also roughly 10 months old, also not pure bred (as you can most likely tell) I'm starting to look for housing options for her now as id like to be able to build a relationship with whoever potentially takes her over these next 2 months. I'm looking for a loving and gentle home for her. I think she would do best in an environment where there aren't other dogs, as she really loves attention. We have another male German though and they get along lovely now, as they were both a bit iffy the first month of them being together. If you have any more questions about her health or anything at all, please don't hesitate to message me. Like I said in the beginning of this note, I'm only wanting to re home her end of April so I can keep her with me for as long as possible. (Less)

    This was just another mommy dog. We adopt out the puppies that find homes, the mommy gets euthanized. But Sarah was saved ! She is great. She plays with EVERYONE. She never knew grass in her short life, never had toys. So she is grabbing each day like she has never lived before. She can be calm or play rough with the young pups. We guess she is aprox 2. She is in PE but can be homed elsewhere. Contact 0727976474 / 0799068635
