This handsome lad is Sniper who will be 3 in August. He is neutered and microchipped and we are told his vaccinations are up to date. Sniper was purchased from a breeder who had to rehome him last October so her friend and her family took him on. Sadly his owner has recently been widowed and is now struggling with the children and Sniper’s needs so has made the sensible decision to rehome him. They will also be emigrating in July. Sniper is currently in commercial kennels.

We are told that Sniper is fine with children he knows, as can be seen from the photos. His owner says he is strong on the lead and does not like other dogs. He also needs to be managed with people in the home. Our volunteer visited Sniper at the kennels to assess him and found him have basic commands, took treats gently and no signs of aggression. He did show some aggression towards other dogs but not to an extreme extent.

The kennels summarised:

  • He does show some aggression towards other dogs
  • He has not had any real training or boundaries
  • He has high drive but wants to learn
  • He is muzzle trained
  • He can be walked by any member of staff
  • He has not shown any aggression towards people
  • He needs a home where the owner is GSD experienced and firm.

Sniper is a typical young lad who just needs a GSD experienced home as previously we feel he has felt he needed to take on the protector role with his family. He needs further training and boundaries and of course work with his socialisation with other dogs.

Sniper 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.
