About us

We are a team of volunteers from all walks of life united by our passion for German Shepherds. In the past some of us have volunteered for other rescue organisations, to whom we owe a debt of gratitude for teaching us so much about this stunning breed and about how to give chances to those who have had none.

We humans prefer to stay out of the spotlight but we believe our dogs deserve to shine. Our own dogs are examples of what love, understanding and experience can bring to German Shepherds who may not have known much love in the past.

While for some of our rescue dogs our support means helping them to overcome their fears, anxieties and pasts, for each and every one it is about finding them the perfect forever family.

Why do German Shepherds need a rescue?

This is a question we often get asked, and the answer has everything to do with the needs of our special breed. German Shepherds are sensitive, responsive dogs bred to work. They have above average energy and intelligence and need a family who can meet their need for physical and intellectual challenge. For one reason or another, these dogs can find themselves in need of a new home and we are here to help.

Where do our dogs come from?

The beautiful dogs come into our rescue from different backgrounds. Some may be dearly loved family pets, whose owners have found themselves in such difficult circumstances that they are no longer able to give them the care they need. However, other dogs will need significant medical and behavioural rehabilitation to give them the life they deserve.
