May I introduce Maggie is a GSD cross Akita we believe. Her passport says she is 2.5 years old but we think she may be slightly younger. She is spayed, microchipped and vaccinations are up to date.

Maggie has been in this country for the last 6 months having been rescued by her owners from South Korea where she was tied up and regularly beaten. They could not find a rescue to help her there so organised to bring her to the UK themselves. Sadly she has high prey drive and it is upsetting their 2 elderly cats so they are looking for a new home for her.

Maggie is currently living with a 9 year old child with no problems and is in fact a very friendly and playful girl. Her current owners have worked very hard with her to give her the confidence she needed. She will growl if approached too quickly but has never bitten. She is also more wary of men but hardly surprising as it was a man who used to beat her.

When our volunteer met her, she did not bark, but was jumping up and licking and very excited. Is left for up to 5 hours with no problems and has no issues over toys or food with people. Can be strong on the lead but has basic commands and ‘selective’ recall when out. Maggie is not good with other dogs when on the lead and will sometimes try to lunge at them and bark, (this is the only time she does bark apparently), so will need work on socialisation with other dogs.

Our volunteer said that Maggie is absolutely beautiful in both looks and her personality and interaction with people. Will need a strong and firm but fair owner due to her horrific start in life. Someone has the chance of getting a lovely young lady who just needs to be taught some more manners and receive more socialisation.

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.
