Meet King Arthur, or at least that’s what he thinks! Here is a little about Arthur’s background.

He is 6yrs old, now neutered, vaccinated and chipped.

Arthur previously lived with a lady owner who if truth be known, never really wanted him,he was bought by her late husband, once it was just the 2 of them she asked for help to re home him but didn’t want him to go into kennels, in fact she said she would rather he was PTS , we said due to his lack of boundaries, socialising and manners we could not put him straight into a foster home so she said she would think about it. A few days later we heard from her to say she had found him a home, we were surprised but hoped that it was a good one and that was that.

Some months later we were asked by another rescue if we could help with this Shepherd as he was proving difficult and not being treated at all well – to my shock horror it was Arthur! I immediately contacted our vollie who assessed him previously and she was horrified at where poor Arthur had ended up. His owner apparently had abandoned him at some kennels and the owners had said they would find him a home but they were all scared of him and he ended up not being cleaned out, food thrown in his run, no fresh water and his very own shock collar for his barking and future training!!

We had him out the next day and Our vollie took him into foster which is where he is now. Since being there he has started to learn manners, boundaries and rules, some have been easier than others. He has a strong guarding instinct which will need keeping in check in a new home and he can be quite dominant with other dogs so maybe a pet free home would be best for this lad. A no to children and cats, still finds being told NO sometimes hard and will try to argue but this is improving all the time.

This boy is going to need an experienced home with extensive Shepherd experience with dogs with issues, no other pets or children, he will need on going training, boundaries and rules. If you feel you fit this description then please get in touch.

Why we do what we do

German Shepherd Rescue Elite was not only set up to help as many unwanted, abandoned and neglected German Shepherds as possible, but to also offer education to the general public on the responsibilities / pros / cons of owning a large working breed dog and to be able to offer help and advice so hopefully we can become the prevention for once instead of always being the cure.
