Vinnie is a GSD cross Rottie. Still entire but is microchipped and we are told vaccinated. Good with children of all ages but sadly not other dogs or cats. Being rehomed due to owner working full time and being left 8 hours a day along with his issues with other dogs which may well be due to his history.

This is what our volunteer had to say about him:

“Vinnie is a lovely big family dog, gentle and playful and quite chilled at home and on the walk. He has had a rough beginning, at 10 months he is now looking for his fourth home.  In the first two homes the owners’ other dog bit Vinnie. The current owner, bought him from Pets4Homes and she and the two teenage children are very sad to let him go but realise 8 hours alone daily during the week is not good enough for a young dog and he has bitten 2 dogs on the lead. Not a fight, just lunged grabbed and didn’t let go.

Hhe would definitely benefit from an experienced handler, physically, reasonably strong as Vinnie is a big dog. His owner does not know if he has had classes but he has a pretty impressive recall, knows sit and down (and paw) and plays gently with a ball, bringing it back fairly calmly and giving it up easily. He waits well and apparently waits patiently for his dinner.

Vinnie did get a bit amorous with me so, as he is a big dog, it may be that his entirety might not be allowed to last.”

Can you give Vinnie the home he needs 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.
