Our very handsome Diesel is now ready for adoption. He is around 2 years old and is a typical reserved shepherd which needs just a little short time to make sure you are not of any threat to him, then Diesel will spring into life with oodles of energy and cheekiness too. Diesel was brought into us recently as he was surrendered by his owner due to him not being able to afford his vet treatment, PTS was threatened and thankfully with Rescues working together, we were able to secure Diesels future by allowing him to come into us instead.
Diesel is fully inoculated and microchipped, he adores a good run around, but would benefit from further training with his commands, and lead work too. He is alittle unsure when you are touching around his neck/collar, so we are working on this and he is being really great in accepting that he will not be hurt or dragged about by his collar again. This handsome boy will need a home which has some patience and understanding of the breed, as Diesel is the typical German Shepherd where he will protect his home and his owner if he needs too, although we had no issues with this at all, this was his initial job to do with his previous owner but we think he was too soft for this kind of job.
We would suggest a dog free home with Diesel in the beginning then slowly maybe after a few months introducing another dog into the home, as he does need to work through some training and not be side tracked by another dog etc. We have been instructed by the previous owner he did live with another dog but we feel for now it would benefit Diesel to be the only dog and keeping him socialised with other dogs so he does not lose the enjoyment of other canines. Cats we would suggest is a no -go I am afraid, He will chase them. As Diesel does bounce about alot, we would suggest children from 9-12 years onwards or a child free home. If the children are large dog/german shepherd savvy this would be of benefit too.
Please visit our website and have a good read of the detailed listing about Diesel, if you can then offer the home he needs, we invite you to complete the online application form which we will then homecheck the suitable applicants. Please do not fall in love with a photo and totally ignore the kind of home diesel needs, as you are then putting the dog at risk long term when things go wrong.
Adoption fee is £200. Homecheck applies for all suitable applicants.
