Rocky was adopted summer 22 unfortunately the adopters were unable to manage his dog reactivity so he was returned to the rescue in February. When he came back to us he was considerably overweight!! He has lost 3kg but still has some more to lose.

Since being back at the kennels he has walked with a number of other dogs with no issues at all, he has even been off lead playing with Rocko (one of our other dogs looking for a home). He does occasionally react to some dogs out on walks but this is easily managed if he is given correct guidance.

He needs a home who have experience of reactive dogs who will continue with his socialisation and follow the advice given to them by the volunteers who have worked with him.

He is fully housetrained, happy to be left for a few hours with no issues and loves nothing more than a cuddle on the sofa!

He loves swimming so a paddling pool in the summer is a must buy for him.

He’s a big softy with people and will make a great addition to any home.


History on Rocky

Rocky came into us via council kennels he is 5 years old, neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated.

We were told he had some training for security work but he just loves people and showed no aggression so was rejected. His general nature is loving and playful, he loves doing zoomies. He is fine to be groomed and has shown no food or toy aggression.

Rocky had a couple of weeks in foster where he was the perfect house guest however the family felt his dog aggression was too much for them to deal with. Since being at the Cheshire kennels his reactivity has improved and he has ignored some of the dogs we have seen while out and has been walked alongside Gus another GSRE dog while muzzled with no major issues. He is improving all the time so this will need to be continued in any new home.

Due to his unknown previous history, we would not recommend rehoming with young children, cats or other dogs.

Rocky was adopted summer 22 unfortunately the adopters have been unable to manage his dog reactivity so he is now back with us looking for a new home.

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.
