Well, what can I say about this smiley lad! Winston is about 9 years old. He was microchipped but not registered and a foreign microchip at that. We believe he is a Herder cross Mali maybe. This is how Winston arrived in rescue:

“I have a Mali x who is a lovely older man that was brought in via local authority. He was found left in a locked car on a hot day and the police had to smash the car window to save him. There is no trace of the owner after investigation. He is underweight where hip bones are visible, has a few lumps & bumps, his teeth are very worn and is currently on synoquin. He is fully vaccinated, microchipped, been wormed, had flea treatment and not neutered. He has been fine with all dogs he has met, walks lovely on lead, knows basic commands and is very well trained. He loves food and is very food orientated can catch your fingers when giving treats as so hungry. He is quite Spritely for an older man and has some life left in him yet! Winston has had a health check with the vet which the vet said he is in good health considering his age and needing to gain weight. The vet has taken bloods to check all is in order and nothing underlining. Sadly he needs out asap otherwise he will be pts. You may have seen a post on Facebook where he was found in a parked car in a car park near the O2 and I have the details of his story from another group where I screenshot the post.

Estimated age is 8-10yrs old. Fine with new people and very friendly to everyone he meets. Great for handling and was really good for the vet when having bloods taken and health check.  He has been fine meeting other dogs on lead and doesn’t really pay attention to any on his walk when passing or if in the distance. He knows basic commands and is quite well trained. Very foody and shows no aggression around food bowl or treats – he is underweight and hungry and would just have to be careful when giving treats as he does catch your fingers!”

How could we say no! Fortunately for Winston he was very lucky that a foster space became available so he is in a home as he deserves.

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.
