Buddy's Story: Buddy's owner had to give him up due to accomodation, he was taken in as an emergency by an associate to make him safe. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Buddy is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Buddy is in boarding kennels near Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.

Buddy's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information: Urgent! A young person bought a dog off the internet. She is not allowed this dog where she is living so I took it to my mum (in West Sussex) spur of the moment in order to save this girls accommodation. I know you do not take dogs from the public but it is not our dog and the owner could not care for it. It is a German Shepherd Cross approx 11 months old. We do not know it’s history.
Would you consider taking him - we are sort of desperate!

Comes 26th May 19

Buddy has arrived, a little nervous, kind hearted but needs to build on trust issues. Lovely looking boy with his ears still making up their minds which way to fall and his docked tail that must have been done as a pup so hence we suspect Boxer x in their with the Shepherd genes more prominent in his case

So Buddy has made it into my favourites for sure. I do love a bit of a playful misfit! He's wary of new people but a bit of playing chase with a tennis ball and some butt scratches got me into his good books. He eventually let me get a new harness and collar on and all was well (He's looking very smart now!). We've since had a lot of playing, cuddling and fetch in the paddock in the past two days. He's a typical hyper young shepherd and will focus strongly on you every now and again so I would expect he'll be pretty trainable with some time and effort. Either that or he's in his own little world sniffing every single blade of grass...
He knows sit and most of his mouthing is gentle, however he can get a bit grabby every now and again. Nothing that can't be solved with a little training. It sounds as though he's come a long way in the short time he's been at the kennels and I can only hope he continues to improve and learn to trust. love4.gif

In filming him today for a future video about him I got a lovely clip of his playful, cuddly side (post-walk) which I thought I should post now as opposed to waiting until I have enough footage for a full video!

I was honoured to make friends with Buddy yesterday love4.gif

He ran into the paddock and happilly came over for a lean in and back stroke and after a while we headed off for a walk up the lane :D

He’s very endearing and has the most amazing ears, he did have the odd puppy moment - his mouthing has no intent but he can be bouncy but he responds so well to sit and that together with a touch to his collar seems to ground him and we were back on a calm walk. He’s come so far already, I’m sure he’ll go from strength to strength love4.gif

I’ll certainly delight in helping him along the way xxx

Buddy and I spent some time in the paddock today - Buddy can get over excited, particularly when playing ball so today we spent some time just relaxing - Buddy had a couple of tennis balls to play with by himself but I didn’t engage with any throwing and showed no interest in the balls even when Buddy dropped them at my feet !
Buddy still played with them which was very cute to watch but he couldn’t resist coming to lie next to me for some gentle fuss and strokes - and no mouthing at all so he did really well thumbs.gif

Buddy is having lots of time in the paddock to express his pent up energy.

James and I took him in for James to explore him and help us construct a plan.

Here James in introducing the Harness which is then once achieved is the signal for play and funtimes.

Buddy has received training in the past and automatically sits for treats, know 'down' and is gentle taking treats. He is so happy to engage in activities but when left to his own devices his concentration span is very short. This serves in his favour as once he has converted something, he soon abandons it and moves on. He loves fetch.
