This gorgeous girl is 10 year old Zara who is in kennels in Burnley, Lancashire, and being rehomed by German Shepherd Dog Rescue.
Zara finds herself in rescue because of a marriage split. She is completely bewildered to find herself in kennels, poor girl, and is very upset. A quiet, adult-only home with people who are used to GSD traits, and where there aren’t too many visitors, would make Zara a very happy girl. If you would like to offer Zara a new forever home, or even a foster home so that she can move out of kennels while she waits for her new home, the rescue would be very happy to hear from you.
Zara previously lived with a male dog who was brought into the home as a pup and Zara loved nothing more than to mother and take care of her little pal. She might be OK to live with a male dog again, but not a female dog. Zara is so affectionate with people and she bonds very quickly with her human companions but is a little nervous when out and about.
Zara is strong on the lead so might be best walked in a head collar. She tends to be nervous if there are too many people or dogs around and might jump up at people if they get too close. But, if you have the time and patience to instill a little confidence into Zara, you will be rewarded with a brilliant companion.
German Shepherd Dog Rescue are desperate to find a home for Zara. She will be such a wonderful dog in a peaceful home. Distractions and noise upset her and she is so unhappy in kennels. The rescue say “It was heart breaking taking her into kennels. She travelled there brilliantly, not a peep out of her, but once installed in her pen she cried like a baby. It is so very sad to leave an oldie alone. Let’s hope the perfect foster or forever home comes along very soon.”
We are all rooting for Zara and really hope that someone reading this will be able to help her.
