Vader is only 1 year old and is in need of a new home as he is too boisterous for their young son. He is microchipped and we are told vaccinated. This is what our volunteer had to say about him:

“Vader has the potential to be a fantastic dog but he lacks manners, training and stimulation.
On entering the property I was met full frontal by him, not aggressive, just boisterous, jumping up and, as I say without manners. There was another husky type bitch who tolerated him beautifully as he fell on her and generally acted like a giant puppy.
I didn’t engage with him until he calmed down, which he did and I was able to interact with him. Even after knowing him for a short time he was keen to learn and is very food and toy motivated.
The owners explained that they cannot walk him as he is too strong pulling them over, he also barks and lunges at other dogs.
Vader does not do well left alone, and the damage to the door behind him in the picture, was caused by Vader.
They also state that he is very good with their older children but growls at the toddler and they are fearful of that, although there has been no escalation beyond growling, however they put a muzzle on Vader if he growls.
In my opinion, Vader needs exercise and training by someone who has experience of the breed, and soon. He is not in the right environment currently, a small house with a small garden and no exercise, but could be an awesome dog in the right hands.
I really hope we can help Vader. The owners were very keen to rehome  him.”

Can you help Vader please?

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.
