Hello – my name is Tia. I moved in with my new Mum and Dad in November 2016. It didn’t take me very long to settle into a routine. I had my 2nd birthday in September this year.

I live in the countryside and have a really big garden to play in. The garden is full of wildlife I especially like chasing the bunny’s and playing with my large boomer ball. My new home is surrounded by big fields. When my Dad takes me out he lets me run off lead in the fields - it’s really good fun. Sometimes I run off to chase a hare or a deer. I’ve never managed to catch one yet. My Mum is at home all the week so I’m really lucky and get three walks a day.

My Mum and Dad have been training me to recall to a whistle – I’m quite good because I get a nice treat if I run to them. Sometimes I go a bit deaf if I’m chasing something but eventually I do come back. I have been going to dog training classes with other German Shepherds which is good fun.

My Mum and Dad say I’m a very vocal dog – the say I sound like Chewbacca from Star Wars when I’m playing or yawning. I have met lots of doggy friends on walks. I’m really keen to play with all of them but sometimes I get a bit over enthusiastic. Everybody thinks I’m beautiful. I’ve heard them telling Mum and Dad.

In the evening after I have played with my toys for a bit I like to curl up on the couch and watch telly with Mum and Dad. They like it when I do that and I get lots of nice strokes and normally fall asleep.

My first holiday with my Mum and Dad was on the West Coast of Scotland – I had my first swim in the River. I was a bit nervous at first but now I love swimming. I’ve been doing some hill walking as well.

I keep hearing my Mum and Dad tell each other how lucky they are to have got me as a rescue dog and they can’t thank the German Shepherd Rescue team enough for all their support.

Message from Mum and Dad:
Thank you GSRS for allowing us to adopt Tia – she is adorable and we will continue to do everything we can to give her a happy doggie life. Keep up the good work.
