May I introduce Poppy who is 3 years old. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Poppy has been in her home since a pup but is being rehomed as her owners do not feel confident taking her out as she will lunge towards other dogs.

Poppy is fine with large dogs at day care, but if she sees the same dogs out when on lead, she will act aggressively. We suspect it may now be a catch 22 where her owners have lost confidence so tense up, so Poppy reacts and so on.

Unknown with children so older only please and a not to cats. She has completed her Bronze and Silver training but did not complete Gold due to her behaviour with the other dogs. No issues over food or toys.

Greeted out volunteer with a bark but quickly settled, but apparently greets less confident people with more barking. Poppy needs the right family who are calm and confident and can pass this onto her to bring out the dog she could be.

Poppy has gone to another rescue.

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.
