About Edie

German Shepherd Dog (GSD / Alsatian)
2 to 5 Years


Edie is an incredibly bright 3 year old German Shepherd who hasn't seen a great deal of the world. She adores playing with toys, especially tennis balls, and will happily bring them back as long as you've got another to throw for her! She's an affectionate dog, but likes it on her terms as it's something she's getting to grips with. Edie would be very well suited to a home that has GSD experience.

Type of home needed

Edie can be frustrated around other dogs at times, particularly if they are too close to her. She is going to need adopters who are willing to work alongside our training team to help her with this. Although she can live with children aged 14 and over, she will need to be walked by adults only, due to her reactivity. Edie is very smart and quick to learn, especially when there's a treat in it for her. She comes from an unconventional household, so we cannot guarantee that she is fully housetrained.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Edie, who is based at Merseyside. 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 £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee 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 can 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.
