Casey is an older boy, he was in kennels for 18 months when he began to go walks with our volunteers each weekend. He had become very protective of his kennel and jumped and barked whenever you came close. However once he was put on his lead he became very calm and walked perfectly, to the point where he had to be dragged round the fields, he loved the car journey to the walk just not to keen on the walking part, always speeding up on the return to the car.

Eventually he was introduced to our volunteer's 3 other GSD's, an 11 year old, a 3 year old and a 10 month old puppy with attitude. As soon as our old girl met him he got her seal of approval so... he was fostered just a few days after our very successful Dog Fun Day at Vogrie Country Park in August.

Casey has settled in very well with us and is a very calm dog in the house and seems happy to have a family and a couch, fire and food. He still has a very protective nature and reacts very noisily whenever visitors arrive but this is being worked on, daily. This will take time but we are happy to work at this with him. He is getting much better when he meets other people and dogs on walks and does not react if another dog barks in his face, just looks away. He has been taken on walks with other rescue dogs who sometimes don't like walking with others and he seems to calm them down, eventually walking side by side.

We are very lucky to have Casey and he is happy to be with us and his 3 sisters. His rescue mum Eileen was able to throw away her ear plugs when Casey eventually left the kennels and I am sure she had balloons up!

Casey would like to thank everyone at German Shepherd Eescue Scotland, especially Eileen, for taking care of him for so long. Don't overlook the older rescue dogs, they can sometimes be easier than a younger dog.

The pictures show Casey on his walk with another rescue boy Zac and also with his 3 sisters.
