Zeba came into foster under GSRE in 2019 and was adopted by his foster dad. Sadly he is back with the rescue as his dad is very ill and not expected to come home, so looking for a retirement pad please. He is now 8 years old. Lovely lad who prefers to keep himself to himself around other dogs. Would be fine with older children. Definitely a man’s dog so Zeba is looking for a new Dad please.
This was his original write up:
May I introduce Zeba who is 5 years old. He is neutered and microchipped and we are told vaccinated. This is what the volunteer had to say about him:
“Barked when I knocked on the door. Kept in kitchen with another male behind a gate. Bounded up and greeted me. No aggression whatsoever. Lovely, happy dog who looks in great condition. Only lead walked for 10 minutes a day. I spent an hour with his owners. Mum is asthmatic so cannot walk Zeba – even with a halti on. She clearly loves the dog and has owned him since 8 weeks of age. Dad does the walking but no free running. Zeba is a large GSD who is not getting anything like the exercise he needs.
I cannot stress enough how lovely Zeba is – with exercise and some training he would be the perfect family dog . he might be a tad bouncy for very young children and he is a no to cats (never seen livestock). He cannot have treats in any form as he has an allergy but has a dental stick once daily. Good health, basic diet of dry biscuits, tinned food/cooked chicken. Can be left/good in car/no chewing. The only question is how Zeba would react off lead with other dogs as this is not part of his current life sadly. Seeing that he lives happily with a small dog it would seem, with the right training, this would not be a problem. He is also good at the vets.
If my own dog wasn’t so dominant I would have him like a shot – someone is going to get a fantastic friend.”
Zeba has been adopted.
Zeba has passed over Rainbow Bridge after suffering a heart attack on his morning walk.
