German Shepherd Rescue
In every community there are German Shepherds as well as every other breed of dog that are abused and abandoned and left without a home. They end up in animal shelters and many are put to death because no homes are available for them and there is a shortage of room at the shelters. In some cities there are rescue shelters who specialize in German Shepherd Rescue.
Volunteers go to shelters looking for Shepherds who are there so that they can save them from being euthanized. They also get the word out and get calls from people who spot abandoned dogs in their neighborhoods. If your dog is German Shepherd click this link for a short article for some German Shepherd training tips. Many of these animals were so abused that they are afraid of humans. Many have malnutrition issues and related diseases. Volunteers nurse them back to health and give them love. Eventually they get the animals suitable for adoption. With these dogs even more than others, knowing correct German Shepherd training is more important than ever.
A lot of work goes into these animals both nursing them back to health and finding homes for them. Most of these German Shepherd Rescue organizations survive strictly on donations from private individuals. In Los Angeles there is an organization called “West Side German Shepherd Rescue” which is a great organization that is rescuing many abandoned German Shepherds. If you search on Youtube there are videos documenting some of their success stories. These videos are touching to watch. I recommend them to everyone.
Another one I ran across that is also in Southern California is called Coastal German Shepherd Rescue. They have some very touching youtube videos as well. Then as you can imagine there are many rescue organizations that will work with all breads of dogs.
What You Can Do
If you are interested it rescuing a German Shepherd I encourage you to go to your local animal shelter. Or if you don’t want to rescue the dog until after it has been nursed back to health you can contact a rescue shelter.
Now you might ask what does all this have to do with Training A German Shepherd? Well as you can imagine since so many of these animals suffered abuse and neglect usually they have been poorly trained or not trained at all. Especially with a rescued dog, being the leader of your German Shepherd’s pack is very important. It actually calms the dog down because he knows and trusts the rules more. Even rescued dogs who have been trained have developed behavior problems that need to be corrected. Becoming the leader of the pack is key.
