Diesel who is 18 months old, was sadly surrendered to an animal shelter some months ago having outgrown his cute puppy stage and was left in a backyard and not exercised or given proper attention and so was left in the outside kennels one night at a local pound.
Diesel was microchipped but no owners details on his records. Diesel, like so many Shepherds found it difficult being restricted to a small kennel so pound staff decided to release him to GSD Rescue NSW two months ago.
Since then Diesel has loved being an indoor dog, sleeps on his carers bed at night, is fully house trained and absolutely loves going for rides in cars and playing with his kong. Diesel is very good with his other rescue dogs but tends to be very submissive towards them, like a lot of rescue dogs he will bark at other dogs whilst being walked on the lead, something that can be easily corrected by a confident handler.
Also like many rescue dogs, Diesel does suffer separation anxiety and has the ability to scale 6ft wire fences so a 6ft colorbond fence is a minimum requirement with a retired person or someone who is home most of the time would be his ideal home. Diesel is fine with other dogs but tends to jump up to great visitors so older children, perhaps over 15 would be most suited. Diesel is definitely an indoor dog when you are home so please keep this in mind if considering this boy.
Diesel is a very loving dog even though he was abandoned by his former owner he is an affectionate and gentle boy. Diesel is now fully house trained and is learning to be voice responsive.
Diesel has had no contact with cats at this stage and is living with both male and female dogs of his own size and he is friendly and playful.

Diesel is desexed, fully vaccinated on heart worm prevention and has been flea treated and wormed.
We have an Adoptions Manager who screens all prospective candidates as to their suitability to adopt a German Shepherd Dog.
We try to contact every one by phone but if that isn't successful we will email our application form to you, which needs to be completed and returned, or you can call us back and we can chat and complete for you. We will also ask you to provide photos of your yard and fencing to enable us to see where the dog will be kept and that they have areas of shade and shelter.
All our dogs are ready to go to their new home, so when you enquire about a dog you must be in a position to take them into your home. We are unable to hold a dog while you fix your fences or go on holiday, etc.
The successful candidate who adopts one of our dogs is provided with an information kit, ongoing support, training and advice on all aspects of feeding, training and general assistance to ensure both the new owner and our rescued dog settle into their home.
