Jager is a handsome 3 year old German Shepherd. He can be worried when first meeting people, but does come round with some time and patience and a nice tasty treat. Once Jager does know you he can be extremely affectionate. Jager enjoys his walks and having a good run off lead and playing with his toys. He will need further training on his recall and on his lead walking as he can be strong. Jager will need to be the only dog in the home, as he does need work on his social skills with other dogs.

Type of home needed

Jager is looking for an experienced adult only home who have had German Shepherds before or a similar breed. New owners will need to be prepared to make multiple visits to the centre to build up a relationship. He is house trained and can be left for a few hours and also travels well in the car. He is a really sweet boy who will be your friend for life once he knows you. If you like your German Shepherds then you will love this handsome chap.

More about me

Stacey, one of the TBA's at Bridgend says: "Jager never fails to bring a smile to my face and I love seeing how excited he gets to see me and people he knows, he pulls in excitement desperate to say hello . He is such a cuddly dog, sometimes forgetting how big he is!! Despite his size, he is a big baby and gets worried by new people .However, trust me when I say he is certainly worth the effort to come and get to know a few times at the centre. His cheeky character will make you chuckle and you will certainly fall in love with him, just like I have!"

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Jager, who is based at Bridgend. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you will receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
