Mary is a very beautiful 8 year old German Shepherd who is being rehomed by RSPCA Macclesfield SE Cheshire & Buxton Branch and is in a foster home in Sandbach.
Mary has come from very unusual circumstances. She had spent a couple of months in emergency boarding kennels after her owner died. There were 9 German Shepherds living in the property and tragically they were with their deceased owner’s body. The dogs were sent to different RSPCA branches for rehabilitation and rehoming and they are all doing well. None were aggressive in any way, which is extraordinary considering that a few were semi-feral as they had never been outside of the property. Mary was the oldest and she must have had a normal life earlier on as she’s really not like the younger ones at all, so the situation must have started when the owner couldn’t manage a high number of dogs.
Despite this background, Mary is a sweet girl who loves to play ball and go for walks. She will happily bring you her ball to throw over and over again. Mary is very clever too and she knows a few commands like ‘sit’, ‘paw’ and ‘bed’. When she is relaxed she absolutely loves attention and will give you her paw to tell you she wants a fuss. She will fall asleep with you stroking her ears. Once she gets to know you she loves your companionship and is a very loyal girl.
Mary would like a home with a nice garden to play in, where she has a bit of space to run, and can go for nice walks. She would benefit from someone who is home a lot of the time as she doesn’t like to be left alone for long periods. She can be quite nervous of new situations so needs someone who is understanding and will be patient with her.
Mary is probably missing the company of her canine family, and she would benefit from living with another dog, as that is all she has ever known. But the rescue doesn’t want to limit her chances of a home, so would consider a dog-free home, provided she would have a good network of canine friends to frolic with on a regular basis.
Mary is as fit as a fiddle and will shortly be having a scale and polish and one cracked tooth removed.
Could you offer this special girl the wonderful home she deserves?
