German Shepherd Puppies

Everyone loves me!  Will you still love me when I am all grown up?

 

Your German Shepherd won't train itself!

If you are about to buy a puppy make sure you are committed, get yourself a pair of walking boots and get along to your local training classes. If you put in the time and effort NOW you will be rewarded by a well behaved, well adjusted adult dog. If you don't you may well be back to our website to complete our re-homing form.

70% of the dogs we are asked to re-home are between 1 and 3 years old, many of them have issues that could have been avoided if their owners had done the proper training when they were young.

Don't buy a German Shepherd puppy unless you are prepared to work hard, they need mental and physical stimulation.

 

 

Do I Go Home Today?

By Sandi Thompson

My family brought me home cradled in their arms.
They cuddled me and smiled at me, and said I was full of charm.

They played with me and laughed with me, they showered me with toys.
I sure do love my family especially the girls and boys.

The children loved to feed me, they gave me special treats.
They even let me sleep with them all snuggled in the sheets.

I used to go for walks, often several times a day.
They even fought to hold my leash, I'm very proud to say.

These are things I'll never forget a cherished memory.
I now live in a shelter without my family.

They used to laugh and praise me when I played with that old shoe.
But I didn't know the difference between the old ones and the new.

The kids and I would grab a rag for hours we would tug.
So I thought I did the right thing when I chewed the bathroom rug.

They said that I was out of control, and would have to live outside.
This I did not understand although I tried and tried.

The walks stopped, one by one; they said they hadn't time.
I wish that I could change things, I wish I knew my crime.

My life became so lonely, in the back yard on a chain.
I barked and barked all day long to keep from going insane.

So they brought me to the shelter but were embarrassed to say why.
They said I caused an allergy, and then, kissed me goodbye.

If I'd only had some classes, as a little pup.
I wouldn't have been so hard to handle when I was all grown up.

"You only have one day left", I heard the worker say.

Does this mean a second chance? Do I go home today?
