Fern has been in foster with us just over two weeks after coming into the Nottingham kennels from the pound. We have no history for her but think she is around the 18month old . Fern was struggling in the kennels not eating etc but since being in foster she is eating well and putting weight on nicely she is now food oriented which is helping with training.

Fern has clearly had no boundaries set in her previous home and therefore still a big pup that still occasionally mouths and jumps up but this is being worked on and improving along with basic training and recall.

Fern gets on well with our westie but can play rough so ideally needs to be a confident resident dog fern would be best with another dog to learn and grow confidence from as she does lack confidence in the outside world but this is improving in foster

Fern does suffer with separation anxiety she is not destructive with it but barks and cry’s this has improved with us but will need somebody prepared to put the work in with her

Fern is a darling girl that has been let down badly in the past but once she trusts you is a loveable big pup with so much potential she is learning quickly and will do brilliantly in an experienced home that is willing to work with her
A definite no to cats ok with livestock walks nicely on a halti

Fern has been adopted.

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.
