GSD would love to meet...

Lancashire GSD Rescue would love to talk to you if you think you can help rehome any of the following dogs:

Duke and Scooby

I’m Duke and I came over from Ireland with Scooby. I was at first called Spook because I seemed to be “spooked” by everything but Ted said Duke was a far more fitting name for a handsome lad like me.

Apparently I am “bio” i.e. more black than tan. The Irish ladies said that I was brought in by a man who worked in security who said he had “found” me but they didn’t believe him. I was really dirty and skinny and really barked at everyone over there but I soon came to realise that they were my friends. I was such a timid boy when I first came to Lancashire that I barked at anyone who came by my pen (but not aggressively). As soon as the door was open though I came cautiously out and sniffed and then allowed a little stroke then went to investigate the garden. I allowed a few more strokes then went back into my pen.

For the first night I was very very quiet but now that I am growing in confidence I bark when the next door dog comes out and when I am out of my pen Scooby and I chase up and down – me on the outside of his pen and him on the inside – Its fun and good exercise! I bark to let them know if I hear anything strange too.

I will play ball now AND bring it back for more. Because I am still wary of things I will need to learn to be confident in lots more places and situations (for instance I still run from the bleep the scanner makes) so I will need someone to understand my needs and help me through this so I can, in time, just be a happy well balanced dog again. Once I know you I am really friendly and I let my coat be brushed and my ears cleaned (if the wipes are warm!) I’m going to have a bath on Friday but already my coat is lots better just from brushing and fresh air and playing in the rain! I invite you to play with me too – using my own doggy body language of course. I’m only a youngster of about 2 years but I haven’t been “done” like Scooby has. Like him I too can’t give you any history with cats or children or the like.
