Onyx came to us from a pound in London. He had been left tied to a lamp post and was in a bad way being underweight and having a skin problem on his back. We believe he was about 2 years old.He is not a pure Shepherd.

Onyx was entire but now neutered. He is now microchipped and vaccinations started, and his skin has cleared up and his coat grown back nicely.

Onyx was very nervous when he first came in but did learn to trust the staff at the kennels and got a twinkle back in his eyes. He does have an issue if grabbed by the collar, he will turn and snap, probably because of being tied up, but this is being worked with. He also has a stubborn side once settled in a home, and when told off, he will stand up to you and snap back. Foster mum is working with this.

History unknown but we would not rehome him with children. Seems to enjoy the company of other dogs around him and has got on with all he has met.

This lovely lad just need an experienced home to help him gain his confidence back in the big wide world and teach him to trust all people again whilst respecting them.

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.
