IF YOU CAN NOT REHOME PLEASE SHARE Pretty Peggy desperately needs her retirement home; she was a stray and deserves her new life as soon as possible …. can you help her? Peggy was picked up and taken into Manchester Dogs home where she did her usual legal 7 days. No-one came forward for her, no owners, no-one missing her, nothing…. So we (Cefni GSD Rescue) stepped forward to help Peggy and save her from being put to sleep. Peggy is 7 years old and is a short-coated, black and tan German Shepherd. Obviously, with a lovely name like she has, she is female, microchipped and fully inoculated. We do have a return to base (manchester Dogs Home) free neutering voucher for her too. So this is all sorted for her and all she needs is her new family to come forward. Peggy is not keen on dogs so she needs a dog free home. She is also not keen on cats, so again a cat-free home. Peggy is such a good girl with people; she is a little reserved and a little bewildered, thinking “what the heck am I doing living in a kennel?”, but we are trying to make her stay with us as fun and nice as possible. As Peggy was a stray, our rehoming policy is strict that any children in the home are 9-12 years onwards or, preferably, no children. Peggy has some basic commands and, ideally, she needs lead work too; she is quite a strong girl for her age. We want to make sure Peggy is matched with the right new owners, so would suggest an experienced home which can work on socialising her with other dogs slowly. This is being done in kennels now, but it’s a work in progress. If you can offer Peggy the home she desperately deserves, please read her full listing on our website then complete the online application form - Homecheck applies to all suitable applicants. ADOPTION FEE is £150 If you wish to read more about Peggy please visit our website - Many thanks

I am sure you will agree the transformation of Tara from when she first came into us a year ago to how amazing she looks now.... she does not look the same dog! Tara is now more than ready for her forever home but its a special home for this girl... IF YOU CAN NOT REHOME - PLEASE SHARE: Tara is a very beautiful German Shepherd girl of around 7-8 years old. She was handed into us here Cefni German Shepherd Rescue about a year ago and is still waiting for her forever home. Poor Tara has had a tough past and she’s been let down by the people she trusted. She arrived as a cruelty case; very underweight and submerged in cold cooking oil which had completely soaked into her ears and fur. After a long period of TLC, a good diet and plenty of baths to de-grease her coat and clean her ears, Tara is looking so much better. The rescue staff have been feeding her on GSD Royal Canin to ensure she gets all the right supplements, oils and minerals, so she’s looking in tip top condition now. The green tint caused by the cooking oil has completely gone, and her coat has a lovely glossy sheen to it. Imagine how much better she must feel – no wonder she is smiling! Tara likes being around people she knows and trusts. Although she’s settled into the hustle and bustle of daily kennel life and is used to other dogs moving around, kennel staff passing back and forth etc, she will do so much better in a calm home environment where her true personality can really blossom. She thrives on structure and routine and needs an understanding person to guide her. Tara is a super intelligent girl and she loves learning new tricks. She is easy to train and always eager to please, so she will make a wonderfully loyal companion. Tara thoroughly enjoys being out on walks in the country. She can be reactive to other dogs, a common trait with German Shepherds, but her lead work has come on very well so she can be handled nicely in a head collar or figure of 8 lead. Although Tara arrived with some food aggression issues, this is improving on a day by day basis. It is still work in progress and the rescue says she has some good days and some grumpy days, but they believe Tara will be more relaxed once in a home environment with an understanding owner. Tara has a delightfully cheeky personality and she loves to play. She was spoilt for choice at Christmas when she received lots of prezzies from her fans! Tara has put the horrors of her past behind her and is trying to move on. She’s looking for an adult-only home without cats or other dogs, and a calm, confident person to show her what the world has to offer. Lots of walks, love, TLC and a daily routine will keep her happy, and a happy Tara is a joy to behold. Tara has no known health conditions and her coat and ears are very clean now. She has recently had a season and is now neutered. If you are interested in registering with us and to be homechecked for adoption please visit our website on: many thanks

The handsome Sonny - now ready for his forever home. If you cant adopt please share Sonny is just over 2yrs old and a very handsome traditional looking german shepherd. Neutered, microchipped and inoculated. He would suit a cat free home Although Sonny is good around other dogs when he is out, we would suggest he is either rehomed into a DOG FREE HOME or with a submissive bitch (preferably of his size) which they can bond together slowly without the issues of dominance or aggression. CHILDREN: although Sonny has never lived with children, we are putting a limit of 12yrs+ onto this, he is a big boy and he would rather live amongst adults, or older children as he is bouncy and does get alittle excited when his toys are about, which could easily knock smaller/younger children over without intending to do it. ABOUT SONNY: Assessors Notes: Sonny has been driving in and around the UK with his previous owner, so is used to being in a car, also has been in hotel rooms too, he is clean and quiet unless told to alert and bark when needed. He is an intelligent boy which will thrive in a new home, he is currently in kennels which he is doing well, he has been in and out of kennels most of his life due to his owner back and forth to Spain with his job. We would suggest an experienced home which would be able to work on a couple of minor issues but due to him pushing a couple of boundaries with being 2yrs and maturing now this needs to have experience and would be too much for a novice. Overall an amazing young shepherd which has alot of potential! BEHAVIOURAL ISSUES: Sonny was so bonded to his previous owner he does now suffer with abandonment issues, which is similar to separation anxiety but with out the noise of howling/vocally fretting/barking. Sonny will fret and sulk badly when someone he adores (which is usually the male of the house) and he will not focus on anyone or anything else until this person returns. Sonny would suit either his owner being at home all the time, or being able to go to work with his owner, as he needs and thrives on the company more so the male and he does I would say 'breaks his heart' as he does feel he was abandoned when his owner had to surrender him to the rescue - it will take some time for Sonny to come through this, but if you can follow the consistent advice and guidelines we will provide the new owner with and you can take Sonny either to work with you or he can be with you most of the time, Sonny will be an amazing companion to have around. He is strikingly intelligent, and this shines through with how and who he bonds with. Like with most dogs he will pick his new owner it is not a matter of meeting the dog and hoping you get on, you will know from within 10/15mins of meeting sonny if he likes you and will bond with you. With these kind of issues you can not expect them to disappear over night, in a way Sonny has had to grieve for his previous owner (although he is not dead) as he will not be seeing him again, and obviously Sonny does not understand why his owner who took Sonny with him everywhere is now no where to be seen. You now have to replace this with a similar bond and allow Sonny to work through his issues, bonding to you, and understanding you are not going to abandon him again. Please do not take on a dog more so like sonny as he looks a lovely dog and you assume you can deal with the issues - you will be asked to demonstrate when you meet Sonny how you will be dealing with his issues on the day of the meet and greet, if we do not feel you are upto the job of mending Sonny's heart then we will not proceed with the adoption. We are here to make sure Sonny is not abandoned again.....please respect this. If you wish to proceed with adopting Sonny please visit our website and complete the online adoption application form which is under the ADOPT A DOG section. Our website address is: Adoption fee is £200 - we ask for this donation amount for a reason please do not try to haggle with us over the adoption amount. You can either afford it or not.... Sonny is in our kennels in the South Yorkshire area - you will be expected to travel to the kennels to meet Sonny - we do not deliver dogs. All our dogs in kennels are fed on ROYAL CANIN GSD and are thriving on the food, we provide every new owner with 4 weeks free pet insurance and lifetime back up support.
