Zeus has found his forever home!
Zeus is now jumping for joy, as he has now been officially adopted by one of our volunteers. He is one of our longest residents in the kennels and we are delighted he is now in his forever home.
Zeus was a big scardie cat when he came to us, he had been isolated for everything and was afraid of the world. Eileen has done a fantastic job, with the help of Dorothy and Carolyn (who walked him every weekend) at helping this boy get over some of his fears. He will never be 100% but he is certainly happy.
Thank you to everyone who has sponsored Zeus on our sponsorship page.
Kos finally finds his retirement home
Kos our old gent has finally found his forever home with his foster carers. He went into foster this year so he didnt have to spend another winter in kennels and he got his paws under the table and is staying put. We would like to thank everyone who has sponsored Kos, he was a popular boy in our sponsorship scheme
Wishlist Thank you
We have had an amazing amount donated to our December kennel wishlist. Thank You to everyone who has donated goodies, food and bedding to our kennels. Our dogs in the kennels will be spoilt this year.
NO REHOMING IN DECEMBER 2015
HELP DIESEL FIND A HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
Diesel has been in our rescue for a very long time now and we would really love to find him a home before Christmas. He has already spend one Christmas in kennels and really doesnt want to spend another one there.
Diesel needs to be the only dog in the home as he doesnt get on that well with others. He also has no recall (must be the sled dog trait in him) so he would also need to be on a long line for quite a long time until he learns what recall is. He is a GSD x Malamute.
Diesel is in our kennels. More information can be found about Diesel on our dogs in need page. Anyone interested in Diesel will be subject to the usual home checks.

Thank you to all of our judges, to everyone who baked (this was the best monetary year every for the baking stall), to everyone who donated or collected prizes for the raffle and tombolas, to the people who helped set up, to the stall holders for coming along, to the class sponsors and importantly to the sun for coming out the first time this year in Scotland ....and to all the supporters who came along with their dogs and took park in this fantastic day - we couldn't have raised this amount without you and your dogs
Im am sure you will agree if you were there it was a lot of fun.
Lots of photos taken by our volunteer David can be found on this facebook page link

Give an Oldie a chance
Never overlook a middle aged or older GSD - Buck came into rescue as a 7 year old. He was extremely over weight (about 55kg) had very long nails and wasn't getting out of the garden as he was too strong for his owner.
He was assessed by us and found him to be such a friendly boy who could easily live with another dog.
Bucks new owners took him on without even questioning his age. So long as their little girl Skye approved of him! And she did. Buck has not looked back since.
The biggest challenge was to get his weight down and his fitness up. The ultimate challenge - to climb a Munro! And boy did he do just that. Buck is an amazing example of the breed, and we wanted to highlight just how rewarding taking on an older dog can be.
Buck's new owner has give his permission to post these photos, most of them taken recently - He will be 10 in August and boy can he move. The last one is his best buddy Skye
Please enjoy these photos and give a thought to taking on an older dog.
German Shepherd Rescue Scotland is having a funding crisis. We are running out of money for the dogs in our care and desperately need your help.
If you can come up with any ways of raising the much needed funds we will be extremely grateful.
We currently have 12 dogs in kennels and most of them have been with us for a very very long time. The kennel fees, food and vet bills mount up for these dogs. We also continue to support long term foster dogs who need medical treatment and the funds are simply drying up.
If you can think of any ways to help us raise money then please go ahead and do it. If you would like to donate any extra pennies you may have the virgin link for donations is below (don't forget to add give aid if you pay tax - that bit doesn't cost you a penny). If you know any businesses that would like to make a charitable donation then please recommend us to them.
We do our best for the dogs in our care, but we can't do it with out money unfortunately.
Thanks for your continued support. GSRS
