WELCOME TO THE HOME OF THE SOUTH WEST GSD RESCUE
We are a non-profit organisation helping German Shepherds across the
South West of England.
Hi, My name is Linda Lines and a very warm welcome to our website.
I am the very proud founder of this organisation and work closely with an army of many caring and loving people who are all fighting for the same cause... to help give these dogs loving and caring homes.
Taking care of rescue dogs Is something that we do best.
It is our aim to love and help the dogs that come into our care and to find them a better way of life.
We also work along side other GSD rescues, which means that through team work and pulling together we can help even more dogs in need.
Love and best wishes
JACOB, THE SWGSDR MASCOT

DOG OF THE MONTH... 'Asha'
Asha is a Carpathian Shepherd Mix who is only 5 months old. She is the last of the Carpathian pups to be re-homed. She is currently being fostered in Gloucester with other GSD's.
This baby girl is very affectionate and loves to give kisses first thing in the morning. Asha Loves children of all ages especially if they play ball with her. She is absolutely stunning and plays with all other dogs she meets on her daily walk. Asha is also house trained.
This girl so deserves her forever home, if you can give her that chance then please contact us for a viewing.
HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED FOSTERING?
The South West German Shepherd Dog Rescue simply do not own any kennels, all our rescue dogs go out to private homes all across the country. We have an army of members always willing to pick up and drop off dogs to various locations in the UK so getting a dog to you will be no problem.
We have so many dogs in desperate need of foster homes and we are now running out of homes to place them in. Your help can make a massive difference, we do not want to start turning dogs away just because we have no homes to place them in.
Fostering a dog is so rewarding and it will not cost you a penny only your time and we ask you keep the dog safe, walk and feed it. We will do the rest. The rescue pays ALL the veterinary bills and the food.
HOW DO I BECOME A FOSTERER?
Please visit our website southwestgsdrescue.org.uk
On the left hand side of the main page you will find an ‘Adoption Form’ button, click this, fill it in and press send.
After a short while you will be contacted by a SWGSDR representative to arrange a home visit. This is a basic home check just to meet you and to make sure that your garden is secure. We are not there to snoop so please don’t let this put you off. There will be a few questions we will need to ask you but this is just to make sure that we place the right dog in the right home. Even if you have dogs, you can still foster. You can also use this time to ask questions or concerns you may have.
Once the home check has been completed, a decision will be made and you will be notified if you are successful. We will then match up the right dog for you and arrange the delivery/collection. We also have a closed Facebook page all about our organization where you can join and see for yourself what we do and talk about

SLEEP TIGHT 'MAX' GOD BLESS
It is with regret to announce the passing of ‘Max’ who passed away on Friday 1st November 2013 after sustaining a stroke.
Max spent the last two weeks of his life being loved and cared for by Marie Clarke and her family. The decision was made to put him to sleep after the vet was unable to do anything for him after he collapsed unable to walk.
“It has been an honour to love and cuddle this wonderful bear for two weeks, we had loads of play and fun. Blaxs also loved his company. A very sad loss and he will always have a place in my heart. At peace now lovely Maxbear.“
