We have had a very busy time for the last year.
Overwhelmed by the many shepherds that have outstayed their welcome, their usefulness or have simply become victims of financial hardship.
Cross fingers for a kinder time ahead.

We will be attending Crufts (N.E.C. Birmingham) on 9th March, our stall will be at the German Shepherd Dog ringside as always.
Please do come and say 'hello'.

We continue to place our rescued dogs into loving and experienced homes with adopters who generously open their houses, their purses and their hearts to care for the needy shepherds who come into rescue looking for a safe and respectful future. We promise we will always do the best we can for these amazing animals.

The Charity Partnership with Pets at Home in Maidenhead, Staines and Taunton, supported by The Pets at Home Foundation remains a vital part of our fund raising and we cannot find sufficient words of gratitude to thank them for their enormous care and interest in our work.

Keep an eye on this website to see what and where we are for 2024. We have many exciting events booked already, thanks to our wonderful, hard working volunteers, without whom, it is doubtful we could function successful.

We want to send very special words of appreciation to Claire and Kelly Maddox for the superb 2024 calendar they designed with such skill and artistry. The more I look at it the better I like it !
Thank you so much to them, it is truly a joy !
(And we still have a few for sale if you feel you would like to own a copy)

One more important 'nag', take care of your four-paws, there are some sad, bad folk out there, who will either try to steal or harm your pets. And please, please remember to respect the countryside and do not allow dogs to roam into fields where there is live stock. The farmers / game-keepers have a right within the law to shoot on sight.

Please do not buy your puppy or any dog / animal through advertisers on GUMTREE or similar sites, it may well turn out to be a stolen pet and somewhere there could be a grieving distraught owner.

We must do all we can to stop the heartless, merciless characters who exploit and steal .

Older news item:
It is very very sad to hear of the passing of Paul O'Grady, a wonderful person who did immense good for the dog world. The following is the letter he wrote to us some years ago and we repeat it here in respect of this much loved and respected person.

I've never actually had the pleasure of meeting this incredible woman called Garbo but from what I've heard she sounds right up my street.
I've nothing but the greatest respect and admiration for those who care and protect animals and Garbo is one of those special people who do just that.
I know that she has an extremely soft spot for that most dignified and intelligent breed, the German Shepherd and I'm also aware of how many she has rescued and rehomed over the years, keeping the odd one or two for herself as you do. In fact it sounds as if she has taken in quite a variety of breeds so I don't feel so bad having five rescue dogs, all of questionable parentage charging around the house.
I'm sure Garbo will agree with me when I say that life without a dog would be a miserable existence indeed and that's why we do our very best to ensure that they are respected, cared for and end up in a kind and responsible home.
We need more Garbo's in this world and I salute this indomitable lady for her compassion, understanding and love of dogs.
She's one of the good guys and long may she continue with the vital work that she does with German Shepherd Rescue.
Love from a fan,

Paul O'Grady
