Full Version: Needing A German Shepherd
Dogpages forums > Rescue Forums > Homes offered...
My lovely Ruby passed away at the weekend. She had chronic kidney failure and the pain of losing her is indescribable.

I can't be without a dog and there is a poor soul somewhere out there waiting for me.

I'm looking for a female German Shepherd, preferably short haired and, most importantly, ok with cats. I have two cats - one is 8 and the other about 3. Both have lived with dogs all their lives and were well used to Ruby chasing them outside and loving them indoors.

I'm not trying to replace Ruby - god knows she was a dog in a million and is irreplaceable - but GSDs are my dogs, the ones that always make my heart melt. I want a short haired one because I'm a qualified groomer and the last thing I want is to groom a long haired dog at home! I want a female because I prefer the girls.

I live alone in Sheffield and I'm at home most of the day. There are large woods, a huge golf course and a big public park (all interlinked) within 5 minutes walk of the house and of course Derbyshire is on the doorstep so my dog will not go short of walks. She will need to be left for a couple of hours in the middle of the day sometimes. She will also need to travel well as when I go away I take my dog with me.

I live quietly and would ideally like a dog that is active on two good walks a day but calm and relaxed at home.

Please post on here and I'll send my phone number if anybody knows of my perfect next companion.
