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
