Cleo came over from Ireland and very little was know about her. She is a high energy dog and is looking for a new owner with just as much get up and go. The down side to this energy is that when she becomes excited she starts to mouth. This is a fixable problem as she has just never been corrected for this behaviour. Because of this we feel she would be better suited to someone where there are no young children around.

Our volunteer took Cleo for a trip to the beach, she loved playing in the sea and chasing and retrieving a plastic bottle from the water. She gave mixed signals when she met other dogs, and dog socialising will need to be worked on in her new home. Cleo is a really loving girl with people and just wants affection. She has a great nose and would love to do some tracking, hill walking or even agility where she can use up her energy.

When our volunteer took Cleo out she loved the car, very settled and quiet. She was also fine in the busy town and walked well on the lead.

Have you got the same amount of energy that Cleo has to be her new owner? You will have a great companion if you do.

Meet the handsome long haired lad Billy.

Originally a stray we estimate Billy to be around 3 yrs old and a stunning handsome lad he is.

However don’t let the good looks fool you; he has a wicked sense of humour and his whole mission in life is to have fun. He will need to go into a home where someone will be firm but kind and show him the boundaries.

Billy could be homed with older, sensible dog-friendly children.

It would also be best were he an only dog, so he can get the time and training he deserves. He is neutered vaccs chipped and would really love to be in a home before Santa comes.

Billy is a large dog.

Otto has been with us in kennels for some time with no sign of a home pending. We have been trying to find him a home for him after his elderly owner could not look after him any more.

Otto is a 7 year old German Shepherd/Malamute Cross, castrated with up to date vaccinations.

Otto is a nice dog who loves to play and wants individual attention. He would be a great asset for someone willing to give him a home. His reaction to other dogs is mixed as he is a bit temperamental; therefore, Otto’s ideal home would be where he is the sole animal.

He is walked regularly by one of our volunteers and walks well on a lead. The kennel staff all love him and he walks past most dogs without a fuss, despite the noise and reaction of others.

Otto requires an adult only home as he has no children experience. He is not good with cats. New owners would have to be experienced dog owners.

Otto has an independent nature, but loves going for a walk.

A home visit from a volunteer from Second Chances, GSR must be completed prior to meeting Otto.

If you think you can help, either to adopt or are prepared to foster Otto, please contact Paul from Second Chances German Shepherd Rescue on:-

Zac is a lovely 6 year old greyhound who has recently come into GAL's care. He was originally rescued as a stray by a pound so we don't know much about his history. Zac is currently in a foster home where is is flourishing.

Our boy needs a special home, who will understand his needs and continue his training. He can be unsure of dogs but his confidence is improving with time spent at his doggy day care.

Zac has some anxieties surrounding his bed and would appreciate a home who would understand his need for being left alone when he is sleeping.

Zac can be homed as an only dog with someone who is around a lot of the time, or could live with a calm greyhound. He would prefer no children or cats.
