We’re genuinely going gaga for German Shepherds!

This week we thought we’d introduce you to a few of our resident German Shepherds or German Shepherd Crossbreeds. We appear to have quite a few looking for their forever homes at the moment so we’re celebrating this amazing breed by sharing some reasons why they make such fantastic pets.

German Shepherd Dogs are active and like to have something to do.

Bindy or Cain are perfect examples of this.

They are both very active and love to interact with their human friends whether it be during playtime, walkies or simply snuggling on the sofa.

German Shepherd Dogs are very smart and perfect for training

Dante is super clever and loves having his brain exercised just as much as his body.

He’s full of energy and will really benefit from a home with owners who are passionate about dog training.

German Shepherd Dogs get along well with children and other pets if raised with them.

Hope had a terrible start in life and at only 1 year old she has done amazingly well with her training.

She gains confidence from other dogs so MUST live with another doggy companion to be a good role model for her.

She can also live with children aged over 16.

Meet Hope


German Shepherd Dogs need ample exercise daily, otherwise they can become high-strung.

Loki is full of energy and needs to have access to plenty of ways to burn this off.

He loves playing so a large secure garden would be perfect, but he really enjoys long walks in areas away from other dogs.

His perfect owners would be super active and happy to take him on some exciting adventures.
